Hot Petitions

Medicare for All!

The American people are ready for Medicare for All, and it is time for Congress to act. We must ensure that everyone has access to quality, affordable health care—and not at the mercy of private insurance companies that profit by denying care.

Delete @realDonaldTrump

Donald Trump has abused Twitter to bully, lie, misdirect, and misinform. He has threatened two nations with military violence in direct violation of Twitter's terms of service—and that's not his only violation. Delete @realDonaldTrump for misuse.

Prevent a "Trump TV" Takeover

I do not support an FCC handout to Sinclair Broadcast Group—a pro-Trump media outlet—especially, if it means the company will own access to 70% of the United States' population. I urge the FCC to block a Sinclair-Tribune buyout and reinstate policies that allow for a free press and a diversity of opinions.

Hold Equifax Accountable

Equifax was entrusted with consumers' personal information, including Social Security numbers and other sensitive data, but the company has broken that trust by having a weak data security system. Equifax's response to the cyberattack has been to offer a free, one-year credit-monitoring service, which provides no guarantee that those who are impacted will not still be affected after one year. We demand that you, as Equifax's CEO, offer a free, lifetime credit-monitoring service to those who are impacted by Equifax's inadequate security.

Pass a clean Dream Act now

Congress must deliver a clean Dream Act to provide legal protections for hundreds of thousands of young immigrants so cruelly impacted by the Trump administration's decision to end the popular Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

No One Wins a Nuclear War

Donald Trump used his address to the United Nations General Assembly to say large portions of the world are "going to hell," talk about how President Obama's Iran deal is "an embarrassment to the United States," and threaten to "totally destroy" North Korea. Given Trump's extreme remarks, it's more important than ever for the public to deescalate the situation and oppose nuclear war! Please sign my petition.

Demand Fair Prices for Drugs Invented using Taxpayer Money

U.S. taxpayers paid more than $200 million to invent a new cancer drug that could cure thousands of patients. Now, the drug corporation Novartis plans to charge children HALF A MILLION DOLLARS per dose. Add your name to this urgent petition and demand fair pricing for cancer drugs invented with taxpayer dollars.

Reject H.R. 3423, the Social Security Commission Act of 2017

Raising the country’s debt limit used to be a routine practice. But now, several of your colleagues are holding the country’s credit rating hostage, and with it Social Security. They’re attaching a so-called Social Security commission to the routine debt ceiling increase in a blatant attempt to cut our earned benefits.

Threatened National Monuments

We should give Bears Ears, Grand Staircase, Upper Missouri River Breaks in Montana, Carrizo Plain and other national monuments threatened by our current administration for oil and gas exploration back to the Native American Tribes they were stolen from.

Its Time to Go 100% Renewable!

We're seeing the ravages of climate change — Hurricanes in the South, fires in the west, and flooding in Asia and Africa. Things are only going to get worse if we don’t move OFF fossil fuels entirely. Support Rep. Tulsi Gabbard's Off Fossil Fuels for a Better Future Act (OFF Act) — a visionary climate bill that will move us to 100% renewable energy by 2035. It's our future on the line — and we need bold action NOW.

Protect the Endangered Species Act

Congress has taken aim at it the Endangered Species Act with more than two dozen pieces of legislation that would weaken it. This benchmark conservation law has saved the bald eagle, gray whale, grizzly bear, and many others. Please maintain the Endangered Species Act in its current form and oppose any attempts to weaken, update, modernize, or reauthorize this vital conservation law.

Congress: End FERC's Rubber Stamping of Natural Gas Pipelines

As a constituent who is very concerned about protecting communities nationwide, I am urging you to take action to end the rubber stamping of natural gas pipelines by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). Communities nationwide are being decimated by natural gas pipelines, and eminent domain is being abused to seize lands without giving landowners any voice or rights. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has abused its power, our climate, and our communities for too long. I’m asking you to: 1. Enact a moratorium on new fracked gas pipelines and infrastructure until there are hearings into FERC’s abuses in...

Fossil fuel industries must pay for hurricane damages

Lives have been lost and infrastructure and property have been lost. The Union of Concerned Scientists agrees the fossil fuel industries knew in the 1970s that scientific models predicted climate change, yet the industries paid for propaganda to hide the truth. It is those industries that must pay for hurricane damages, not the taxpayers.

Tell Secretary DeVos: Protect survivors of sexual assault.

I am writing to express my outrage regarding your recent decision to rescind key Title IX guidance instructing schools to uphold their legal responsibility to respond to sexual harassment or sexual violence, and ensure protections for transgender and parenting students. All students should be able to attend school and count on administrative backing to protect their safety, ensuring equal access to education under the law. The Title IX guidance reminds schools of their legal obligation to address sexual violence and works actively to address and prevent sexual assault on campus. Many survivors have expressed hurdles in reporting their assault and...

Jeff Bezos: Eliminate plastic packaging at Whole Foods Market

You have been a marketing iconoclast and are now in a position, as a business leader, to use your buying power to induce suppliers and package designers to use their considerable ingenuity to create renewable, naturally biodegradable product packaging. Increasing eco-consciousness means more customers will shun plastic. This is a chance to do well in business while doing good.

VICTORY: Governor Corbett Releases Education Dollars To Philadelphia Schools

In October 2013, a student at one Philadelphia school suffered from an asthma attack that led to her death. If there had been a school nurse on campus that day, she might still be alive.

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.
