Department of Homeland Security: Stop Using Private Prisons Now!

The Department of Justice recently announced that it would phase out the use of 13 private prisons due to safety and security concerns. However, the Department of Homeland Security is the biggest client of private prison corporations, using their facilities to hold immigrants in unconstitutional and inhumane conditions. We demand that the Department of Homeland Security terminate its use of private prisons immediately!

President Obama and DHS: Stop paying for-profit companies to lock up immigrants.

We demand the Department of Homeland Security follow the DOJ’s lead and stop paying corporations to lock up immigrants. The DOJ’s decision to phase out private prisons reflects a growing consensus that mass incarceration is out of control and imprisoning people for profit is wrong. It's an important step forward – but it doesn't affect most federal private prison contracts, which are handed out by the Department of Homeland Security to lock up immigrants, often in horrific and abusive conditions. If you don't want to be known as leaders who helped prison companies profit from suffering and neglect, you need...

TAKE ACTION: Get these hormone-disrupting chemicals out of our food!

I am deeply concerned that toxic chemicals called phthalates are allowed to be used as food additives. Exposure to this class of chemicals during pregnancy is linked to serious impairments to children's brains and to the reproductive systems of boys. Exposures during childhood are associated with developmental delays and serious learning disabilities. We must do a better job of protecting our children from chemicals. I urge the FDA to stop allowing toxic phthalates to be used as food additives. The brain development and reproductive capacity of a generation of children are on the line. Thank you for your consideration of...

Stop the increase of INSULIN price for patients

Insulin prices have soared more than 400% during the past decade, making access to this vital drug, without which Type 1 and Type 2 insulin dependent diabetics cannot survive, a real life-or-death plight. Eli Lilly, Novo Nordisk, Sanofi, all makers of insulin as well as its distributors, insurance companies and retailers must find new ways to keep INSULIN available to all patients that need it. People with diabetes who cannot afford to pay the current prices, sometimes reaching an expense of more than $1000.00 dollars a month, are being forced to choose between paying for food or rent or being...

Oppose New Gas Pipeline at Indian Point Nuclear Plant

A giant fracked-gas pipeline is being built to run within 105 feet of critical structures at the Indian Point nuclear power plant, the most accident-prone in the world. An explosion in this pipeline could cause a Fukushima on the Hudson, affecting 20 million New York residents, making the entire region uninhabitable for generations, and destroying the US's financial center.

President Obama: Protect the Grand Canyon from toxic mining

I urge you to protect the Grand Canyon from nearby uranium mining by designating the Greater Grand Canyon Heritage National Monument. Doing so will permanently protect this sacred place for generations to come and set a precedent for protecting other special places across the country from reckless threats.

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.
