Hot Petitions

Direct the CDC to study America's gun violence epidemic

Gun violence in America has reached epidemic proportions, so our government should be treating it like a public health crisis. Trump must make this a priority, and the CDC's findings must be widely published and used as a basis for legislation to end this national epidemic.

Tell DC Mayor Bowser and DC Council: Stop Trump's War Parade

Trump plans a massive demonstration of military power in Washington, D.C. A war parade would be a waste of our taxpayer dollars, would not do anything to keep our country safe, and would not honor the men and women in uniform. Its entire purpose is to let Trump play dictator for a day, further eroding democracy, and pushing our country even closer to authoritarianism. Trump's war parade must not be treated as normal. Prevent Trump from holding a dangerous war parade in Washington, D.C.

Senator Rubio: Return the NRA's bribe money

I want Senator Marco Rubio to give back the $3,303,355 he received from the NRA! This is clearly bribery, and shows that his concern is not at all for gun safety, but rather his bottom line! He is certainly not a man of integrity!

US Ban on Assault Weapons

The school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland is just another example of why assault weapons do not belong in public hands. It was the 18th school shooting in 2018. Our families' right to be free from fear of being gunned down by an assault weapon outweighs the nonsensical "right" to own assault weapons. There is no reason to defend ownership of these military-grade weapons in civilian life. Please sign my petition calling for a ban on assault and automatic weapons.

The Mark Burnett Trump Tapes

It's known that Mark Burnett has been protected from releasing tapes of on-set sexual harassment by a big NBC personality and current President of the United States: Donald Trump. Sign this petition in support of Mark Burnett releasing these tapes. Donald Trump, like all citizens, should be held accountable for his actions.

Investigate Trump's Hush Money to Stormy Daniels

We deserve transparency and accountability when it comes to money spent to influence our elections. The Department of Justice (DOJ) and Federal Election Commission (FEC) must investigate the payment Trump’s lawyer made to Stormy Daniels, and determine whether he, the president, or his campaign broke federal election laws.

Devin Nunes must be removed from Russia probe

Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes’ attacks against the integrity of the Mueller investigation are a shameful partisan stunt. He must be removed from participating in the Russia investigation so we can get the answers we deserve.

Keep ICE out of Hilton, La Quinta, Motel 6, and Wyndam hotels

Motel 6 is being sued in several states for cooperating with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents to harass, detain, and deport motel guests. This is unconscionable. Ensure all Blackstone Group hotels—Hilton, La Quinta, Motel 6, and Wyndam hotels—have strict policies against this kind of racist intimidation and profiling. This is a shameful practice that must end.

John Kelly should resign

John Kelly has disgraced the office of the president, allowing Porter to remain privy to classified information knowing full well the FBI denied Porter a high security clearance for domestic abuse.

Don't Risk Another Financial Crisis

A new bill by Senator Mike Crapo slashes regulations on 30 out of 40 of the biggest banks, banks that took billions in bailouts after the last crisis. Tell your Senators: reject S. 2155!

Help Jorge Castañeda come home!

On January 11, when checking in to his appointment with immigration, Jorge was detained not allowing him to go back home with his wife and 3 children. Please help reunite them!

Tell the U.S. Forest Service to protect the Boundary Waters

United States Forest Service, I strongly urge you to take all actions necessary to protect the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (Boundary Waters) and Voyageurs National Park (Voyageurs) and to prevent sulfide-ore copper mining in the headwaters of these national treasures. 1. Prepare a rigorous and comprehensive Environmental Impact Statement that thoroughly studies the devastating impacts of sulfide-ore copper mining on Superior National Forest lands in the Rainy River Drainage Basin. Provide the scientific, economic, and social basis for a withdrawal of 234,328 acres of Superior National Forest lands. Document why only removal of these lands from the federal mineral...

VICTORY: Governor Corbett Releases Education Dollars To Philadelphia Schools

VICTORY: Tribune Papers Spared From Koch Empire

When the Tribune Company went up for sale, it was widely reported that the Koch brothers were interested in acquiring its newspapers - including the Los Angeles Times and the Chicago Tribune. The billionaire Kochs and their tea party politics presented a clear threat to independent journalism, so several organizations, including Forecast the Facts, Courage Campaign, and Working Families started MoveOn Petitions asking Tribune Company CEO Peter Liguori not to sell to the Koch brothers.
