• Restoration of Obama's Cuba Policy by the Biden-Harris Administration
    [We are no longer seeking signers for this petition based on the Biden Administration's announcement that it will implement most of the requested policies.] Protests in Cuba on July 11th and subsequent trials dramatized the cost of President Biden and Vice President Harris failure to fulfill their campaign pledge to "promptly reverse the failed Trump policies that have inflicted harm on the Cuban people". Substantial majorities of Americans support repairing the Trump Administration's symbolic and substantive damage to our freedom as well as to our national political and economic interest. Sadly the Biden-Harris Administration has allowed the shadow of Trump to dominate US policy on Cuba more than one year after replacing him. It is unconscionable to continue to deny Cuban Americans the ability to provide desperately needed remittances to their families and to ignore the Constitutional right of all Americans to travel. Prompt action is essential so independent visitors and specialized travel agencies can create trips that renew support for Cuba's private sector in the winter of 2022. Cruise lines, tour operators, airlines, universities, cultural exchanges, agricultural producers and businesses require confirmed policy change in order to resume jobs providing engagement in the 2022 season. Organizer: Fund for Reconciliation and Development, Cuba/US People to People Partnership [Every time we add another 1,000 signers, we update a published list organized by zip code.

  • Tell Biden: Reject Corporate Contributions for the Inauguration!
    President-Elect Biden's inauguration is just over a month away. And while Biden's inaugural committee has rightly rejected money from fossil fuel corporations, they're still planning to accept up to $1 million from individual corporations -- even though Barack Obama rejected corporate contributions for his inauguration in 2009. This inauguration will be different due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Instead of gala inaugural balls and parties happening in person, most of it will happen online. That should mean it's even less important than ever before to raise money from corporate interests to fund it. If the Biden-Harris administration is serious about “building back better” in a way that remedies the longstanding ills of the country, Joe Biden should not let corporate interests have this kind of unnecessary influence. Rejecting their contributions to the inauguration fund is a key step this administration can take to signal where their allegiances lie.

  • Keep Fair Lawn Bakery Open
    This is a company very dear to my heart. My grandfather left Bulgaria to pursue a better life in America for our family and this was his first real job here. It changed everything for us! My mother is a long time employee in this location and has dedicated her life to this company. So many lives will be changed if this location closes. We are in the middle of a pandemic and many families are dependent on this income. Our economy will be affected, our local businesses. We need to rally together and make sure the jobs stay here!

  • Bank of America: DO NOT finance Arctic drilling!
    To protect our precious environment, especially since the lame duck Trump administration just moved to sell oil rights in the Arctic Refuge on November 16, 2020, with sales to go through right before Inauguration Day 2021 when Biden becomes President.

  • Stop Trump’s last ditch arms sale to the UAE
    Right now, Trump is trying to ram through a massive last minute sale of $23.37 BILLION in weapons to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) — the same bombs that they and Saudi Arabia use to murder Yemeni civilians and exacerbate a humanitarian crisis — and the time for us STOP the sale is already running out. Trump is still in the White House until January 20, 2021. And between now and Inauguration Day, untold damage can be unleashed, including weapons sales like this one. But we have a CRITICAL, narrow window to stop this sale: by law, Congress has 30 days to intervene and block the sale. The clock is ticking, but luckily, we’ve done this before, and there’s no doubt that together, we can get loud enough so that (once again) Congress listens. Sign now to tell Congress: End U.S. complicity in Yemen, stop Trump’s arm sale to the UAE.

  • Twitter: Stop Aiding in Trump’s Coup Attempt—Suspend @realdonaldtrump
    Joe Biden has won the presidency. But the current president of the United States, Donald Trump, is attempting a coup. He has no plans to concede the race and instead is erratically spreading lies of “widespread voter fraud” and taking radical steps like firing his Secretary of Defense—like a true fascist leader. We knew this would happen but it doesn’t make it any less dangerous. Twitter is Trump’s most direct microphone to speak to the American People. It’s time that microphone be turned off for the good of the People. Enough is enough. We can’t wait until Jan 20. Twitter must suspend Donald Trump and his enablers now.

  • Stop the ban of LGBTQ+ rights in the US.
    They want to revisit and ban the laws that gave us our rights in 2015 from the Obergefell v. Hodges case (ending at a 5:4 vote). We’ve spent so long fighting a debating for our HUMAN rights. It’s already been brought up in court with a 5:4 vote. Our rights are human rights. Why should we have them stripped away for simply loving who we love, and identifying the way we do? It is 2020 yet we’re going backwards. The fourteenth amendment guarantees protection and equality to ALL US citizens, where is that protection and equality now? Please sign this and SHOW that we won’t stop demanding equality in this country.

  • Freeform should have 31 nights of Disney
    Freeform has a wide variety of Audience. They show 31 days of Halloween movies, and they have Christmas specials. I am petitioning for this network to add a 31 days of Disney movies. The up and coming generation DESERVES to experience the classics that is Disney. Children are so impressionable and they see such violence and gore on TV that we owe it to them and ourselves to provide a safe time and space for children to spend time and watch TV with there family’s without being subjected to unchildly things. Disney movies not only provide that safe space but they are also a huge part of a child’s development. Disney inspires, animate, and molds the lives of millions, so who are we to deny our children this experience. Simply adding Disney to Freeform will not only make views skyrocket, but bring family’s together in a safe setting and during trying times like these, it might be exactly what we need to bring our community back together!

    Jaiden Locarnini Barajas 13 years old of Reno Nv was killed on September 25 while waiting for the school bus in Fallon Nv. He was ran over by a drunk driver who turned out to be a retired police officer. Trying to flee the scene the man had to be guided off the road by a witness. Jaiden and his two sisters were standing in the yard waiting for the school bus when this man made a u turn and plowed through a yard running 13 year old Jaiden over who pushed his sister out of the way, saving her life. This man was able to go home that night to his family. Why is this ok? Why wasn't something done about this? That is why we want this law. Something needs to happen.

  • Declassify The Proud Boys
    The Proud boys are in no way, shape or form a hate group! PB's are a men's club full of Proud Patriots that are often the only thing standing between us and Domestic terrorists like Antifa. The Proud Boys have been slandered by the left for political gain, even going as far as calling them White supremacists! The Chairman of the PB's is a cuban gentleman by the name of Enrique Torrio (NOT WHITE) The left needs to understand that it is not okay to slander people just for having different beliefs than they do! On every platform and even in the streets conservatives are being shunned and censored. This is the U.S we have freedom of speech & expression in this Country. We need to STOP the Over censorship of people with Right leaning beliefs and get our Boys the recognition they deserve, this is an important first step!

  • Rewrite the American Constitution
    Slaves were not freed until 1863. Women were not allowed to vote until 1920. Black people were not allowed to vote until 1965. Gay marriage was not legalized until 2015. Our constitution was written ONLY by white men in the 1700s. We are not including the thoughts and perspectives of any woman, any person of color, any of our LGBTQ communities. We cannot expect change and we cannot expect equal justice for all when we are living under the supreme laws of a document crafted in the 1700s. As women, we deserve a say As people of color, we deserve a say As people of different sexualities or nonconforming genders, we deserve a say. As people with differentiating cultures in our country, we deserve a say. Sometimes we need to deroot and replant to grow a vital and luscious garden. America, land of the free, home of the BRAVE. WE, the people, must put meaning to those words. It only takes 100,000 signatures in 30 days or less to send a petition to the white house. Please, let’s come together and fix this before it’s too late. Please, set aside our differences and let’s fix this, before it’s too late. Estados Unidos necesita tu ayuda. Por favor. Nosotras necesitamos vivir mejor. No más odio. No más tristeza. Más valentía, más libertad, más vida!! ahora! Vámonos! Salud y gracias.
