Hot Petitions

What did Pence know?

As the leader of Donald Trump's transition team, Mike Pence is accountable for the actions during transition. He must be investigated along with Trump for wrongdoing, misleading the public, and criminal activity. And if found guilty, he must be held accountable, including possible prosecution and impeachment.

Net Neutrality Under Attack

Net Neutrality is not negotiable. It’s essential to everything we need in our society and democracy—from educational and economic opportunities to political organizing and dissent. Millions of people fought for over a decade to secure lasting Net Neutrality protections under Title II. We will not accept anything less. We urge you to reject any attacks on real Net Neutrality.

Reject Trump DeVos Education Budget

Americans don't take billions of dollars away from school children so billionaires can privatize education to turn a profit. The plan Trump has laid out is a self-fulfilling prophecy; taking away money from school programs that not only support academic growth but promote socio-emotional development will result in failing schools. We need to lift our students up and provide equitable education and opportunity so that school children grow into contributing members of our creative, innovative, and compassionate society.

Tell Dept. of Homeland Security: Don't Hire Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke!

Do not appoint Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke to any position in the federal government. Sheriff Clarke is unfit for office and needs to face criminal charges for the human rights abuses and deaths at his jail, not be hired by DHS and given federal powers to continue his racist rhetoric and advance racist policies targeting immigrants, Muslims, and Black people.

Tell Congress: No more bombs to Saudi Arabia. Block the arms deal now!

US weapons sold to Saudi Arabia have been repeatedly used to kill civilians in Yemen, but the Trump administration approved a $110 billion sale of more weapons to Saudi Arabia this weekend. America must not sell weapons to a repressive regime that is purposefully creating a famine in Yemen. I call on Congress to block arms sales to Saudi Arabia now!

TAKE ACTION: Urge Secretary Zinke to Protect Bears Ears National Monument!

Bears Ears National Monument is a national treasure for all Americans to protect and enjoy. As a public stakeholder, I urge you to listen to my voice today. Follow in the footsteps of Teddy Roosevelt and keep this land intact and protected under the Antiquities Act. Don't shrink Bears Ears National Monument or reverse its monument protections. The designation of Bears Ears marks the first time in the 110-year history of the Antiquities Act that Native American tribes came together to ask a president to designate a national monument. Diminishing this land is an affront to their voices as well.

Reject Trump's Education Budget

The Trump administration’s proposed cuts to education funding do nothing to help resolve the $1.4 trillion student debt crisis in this country – it makes it worse. Demand Congress stand up for students and loan borrowers by rejecting Trump’s draconian education budget.

Stop Trump's Starvation Budget!

Demand that Congress reject the cruel $191 billion cuts to the life-saving Supplement Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) in Trump's budget. We should be helping Americans in need, not condemning them to starvation.

Lawrence O'Donnell

MSNBC is reportedly not renewing Lawrence O'Donnell's contract. Please sign this petition so we can keep a journalist of highest integrity on the air.

Stop Betsy Devos from Cutting Student Loan Forgiveness

Proposed cuts to the education budget include removal of the Student Loan Forgiveness Program for civil servants and nonprofit workers. This program is vital for these individuals in order to get out of crushing student loan debt. We must not let this important program be dismantled!

VICTORY: Tribune Papers Spared From Koch Empire
