Hot Petitions

Tell the FCC to keep the internet free and accessible for all

This week we learned that the FCC is moving forward to repeal net neutrality rules that protect our free and open internet. As I said in my letter to the FCC just a few months ago: this proposal is a grave threat to the idea that the internet should be free and accessible for all. It’s a danger to our economy and free speech rights and we must defeat it.

Retire Mike Madigan

He's been at the helm so long that he's probably the one person most responsible for Illinois being in the financial mess it is. We need to have term limits to make our state more responsive to the will of the people rather than political domination, and I am a progressive Dem but outside of his sphere of influence.

Expand Medicare to All Floridians, Support FL HB 1385

Call on our members of the Florida House and Senate, as well as Governor Rick Scott, to support FL HB 1385 so Florida can adopt a Medicare-for-All system to provide quality healthcare to all Floridians. Under this plan, Florida would transition to a publicly funded, universal healthcare system. The program would provide coverage to the approximately 2.6 million Floridians who are currently uninsured, create safeguards to address the high costs of prescription drugs and require the state to develop a revenue plan to pay for the program.

No Wall, No Way!

Declare "No Wall, No Way" and announce you'll block any attempt to fund this expensive, useless symbol of Trump's craven and xenophobic fearmongering.

CNN: Stop Covering Trump Rallies!

As the largest deliverer of "NEWS" in America , please, stop covering Donald Trump rallies and events where other Presidential candidates are not involved and there is no focus on policy issues facing America!

Support Student Loan Forgiveness

Total outstanding student loan debt in America is expected to exceed $1.4 TRILLION this year. Millions of hardworking, taxpaying, educated Americans are being crushed under the weight of their educational debts, while the economy continues to sputter. Support a REAL economic stimulus and jobs plan. Support Student Loan Forgiveness.

Protect America's Wolves!

President Obama and his first Interior Secretary, Ken Salazar, a Colorado rancher, adopted unjust and heartless "tea party" policies toward America's wolves, and the U.S. Congress is equally guilty in this ecological and ethical injustice. Wolves are highly intelligent, native, and vital natural predators that belong on the land. Too many brutish ranchers and misguided hunters have unfairly demonized and maligned wolves for centuries. An American majority wants an end to the demonization and massacre of America's wolves and other native wildlife.

VICTORY: New York Times Works to Inform Readers on Budget

The New York Times' tendency to report on budget numbers without contextualizing them was a problem - especially in light of the recent federal budget crisis.

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.
