Petition to President Donald Trump
Stop President Trump and U.S. from Withdrawing from COP21 Paris Agreement
In December 2015, more than 190 countries adopted the Paris Agreement, the most ambitious climate change agreement in history. In order for the agreement to take effect and enter into force, at least 55 countries representing at least 55 percent of global emissions needed to formally join the Agreement. On Setember 3, 2016, the United States and China deposited with United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon their respective instruments to join the Paris Agreement, marking a significant contribution towards the early entry into force of the Paris Agreement. That action by the United States and China to formally join was a significant step towards entry into force this year with countries representing around 40 percent of global emissions having now joined and more than 55 countries having already joined or publicly committed to work towards joining the agreement by the end of 2016. (Whitehouse.org) Shortly thereafter, on October 5 2016, the threshold for entry into force of the Paris Agreement was achieved. The Paris Agreement entered into force on November 4, 2016, thirty days after the date on which at least 55 Parties to the Convention accounting in total for at least an estimated 55% of the total global greenhouse gas emissions have deposited their instruments of ratification, acceptance, approval or accession with the Depositary. (Unfccc.int) The Agreement represents years of international diplomacy and hope for the millions of people across the planet imminently threatened by the impacts of climate change. It is an unprecedented achievement for the environment and one in which the United States showed extraordinary leadership. Climate change is a matter of international concern. It threatens global security and human rights across the planet. It poses a critical threat to countless natural resources. It is one of the single greatest threats humankind has ever faced. The unity demonstrated by the Paris Agreement, both in its negotiations and its ratification, are an illustration that when joined together, we are a thoughtful, powerful transnational community of citizens that can courageously and collectively work together to tackle critical global problems. The work begun in Paris must not be derailed now. It cannot be. The world cannot afford it. The United States must not withdraw from the Paris Agreement. We are asking Americans and members of the international community to join in sending a strong message to President Donald Trump that any consideration of withdrawing from the Paris Agreement is unacceptable.

Petition to Massachusetts State Senate, Governor Charlie Baker, Massachusetts House Of Representatives
No tax returns? No Mass ballot access for Trump!
Force President Trump and all future candidates to release their tax returns! If not, they must be denied access to the Massachusetts ballot for 2020! We need the 200,000 women and allies who marched for freedom, fairness, and equality in Boston to Support March Forward Massachusetts in our first major action since the historic march. We're working to pass S.365 -- legislation in Massachusetts requiring presidential and vice presidential candidates to release their five most recent tax returns to the Secretary of State. Sponsored by State Senator Mike Barrett (D-Lexington), S.365, An Act Restoring Financial Transparency in Presidential Elections, is one of more than 25 such bills filed across the nation. Sign on today to find out what President Trump's tax returns say; and who he is in bed with in Russia. President Trump is manipulating our democracy, obstructing the Russia investigation and getting rich while callously taking away protections and programs from the poor and middle class. Nothing less than our society at stake here. Efforts from March Forward Massachusetts have already resulted in numerous co-sponsors of the bill. We need the power behind the Women's March to bring us over the top! Sign on today to tell the State Legislature and Governor Baker to support this critical bill! Please sign then share with all your friends and family. For more information, visit http://www.marchforwardmassaction.org
Petition to Dianne Feinstein, Richard Burr, Loretta Lynch, Ron DeSantis, Barack Obama, James Comey
Tell POTUS, DOJ, FBI & CONG to release info on Trump's Russian ties before electors vote!
In addition to James Comey, I will also be sending this letter to The White House, the Department of Justice, The United States House Oversight Subcommittee on National Security and Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. If you can think of anyone else to send it to please mention in comments. Please sign the letter! In light of the Oct. 7th announcement by: The Department of Homeland Security and Office of the Director of National Intelligence; on behalf of the U.S. Intelligence Community; concerning the Russian Government having compromised the e-mails of American citizens, US institutions and US political organizations; in an effort to effect the outcome of the 2016 Presidential Election. It would be in the best interest of the American public, to release any and all information involving any and all investigation(s) of President-Elect Donald Trump and the Trump campaign's ties to Vladimir Putin and the Russian Government, before the electoral college votes in December. In addition to reports of Trump's top campaign aids having ties to the Russian government, there have been recent reports of the campaign being in constant contact with members of the Russian government throughout the 2016 election process. This information creates a serious cause for concern and may be a danger to our national secrets, a danger to the safety and security of the american people, and in the case any negotiations took place, is a blatant violation of The Logan Act. Thank you for your time. The American People PLEASE SIGN AND SHARE! On November 29th Democratic senators on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence sent the following letter to the President of the United States: Dear Mr. President, We believe there is additional information concerning the Russian Government and the U.S. election that should be declassified and released to the public. We are conveying specifics through classified channels. Thank you for your attention to this important matter. Sincerely, Ron Wyden , Jack Reed, Mark R. Warner, Barbara Mikulski, Martin Heinrich, Angus King and Mazie K. Hirono View letter here.
Petition to Donald Trump, U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives
We want to see Trump's tax returns.
President Trump calls reports of his alleged compromising ties to Russian businesses and government officials, “FAKE NEWS - A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT.” He can prove it by releasing his tax returns. Who does our president owe money to? Can they use his debt to manipulate our Commander-in-Chief? Is he receiving income from foreign sources to his businesses from which he has yet to divest? The answers are easy to discover if he releases his tax returns. In a press conference, Trump told the assembled reporters, “The only people who seem to care about my tax returns are you people here.” Our country does care. In fact, according to an ABC/Washington Post poll, 74% of Americans (including 53% of Republicans) want him to RELEASE HIS TAX RETURNS. Every major presidential candidate for the past 40 years has voluntarily released their tax returns. President Nixon even released his tax returns while under audit. Why does President Trump refuse to release his taxes if he has nothing to hide? Please sign and SHARE this petition calling on President Trump to RELEASE HIS TAX RETURNS NOW.

Time to Impeach Trump: Obstructing Justice and Abuse of Power
President Donald J. Trump has displayed that he is unfit for President in numerous ways. Former FBI Director Comey has helped make it clear from his testimony this morning that President Trump has contributed to at minimum obstructing justice and abusing his power.Democracy for America points out that Comey has jut began by saying:* Trump invited Comey to a private dinner at the White House and pushed him over and over to compromise his impartiality, implying that Comey could be replaced if he didn't and outright saying, "I need loyalty, I expect loyalty." Comey refused.* Later, shortly after former national security advisor Michael Flynn's resignation, Trump pulled Comey aside after a briefing and pushed him to drop the investigation into Flynn, saying repeatedly, "I hope you can let this go."* Following that meeting, Trump called Comey on the phone multiple times to complain about the Russia investigation. As Comey wrote: "He said he had nothing to do with Russia, had not been involved with hookers in Russia, and had always assumed he was being recorded when in Russia. He asked what we could do to 'lift the cloud.” Join me in urging the U.S. House and U.S. Senate Leadership that the time for impeachment is now and has never been more clear. All eyes are Congress to keep the nations integrity and national security protected. Photo Credit: The Atlantic
Petition to Susana Martinez, New Mexico Governor
"STATE OF EMERGENCY" (DRUG EPIDEMIC / NORTHEN NEW MEXICO) HELP SAVE OUR CULTURE
With national statistics, data , and high numbers of deaths,illnesses attributed too drugs and as well our failing public schools, as direct links to the "Drug Epidemic", in Northern New Mexico, we have been placed at the top of national graphs and state counties as one of the worst places for drug overdose, suicide and illness in the country. Thus, we the undersigned concerned tax paying citizens are "Demanding a "State of Emergency" be declared in the county of Rio Arriba, in the state of New Mexico. For several decades we have been in a heavily oppressed, repressed and dire situation in regard too loosing large numbers of souls too include : Teens, young and old adults as well as elderly citizens too the drug infestation, both legal ( narcotic/opiate, ect... ) and illegal ( heroin/meth/pink/cocaine, ect..) drugs. As the Federal Government and DEA cracks down on prescription drug dispensing, the adverse effects have increased the use of heroin use and thus, increasing higher incidences of Hepatitis-c, AIDS, Crime, and Criminal Activity in all facets our livelihood. The age groups of addiction has scattered in both directions, currently it has trickled down too adolescence and gone up in some cases too great-grandparent ages. Its is no longer a "FAD" or a "TREND" in many circles it is becoming a "RITE of PASSAGE" and a way of life in others. WE are demanding that; 1) Assessment, treatment, triage, substance abuse teams be dispatched throughout the county communities. ; 2) That a temporary centrally located "medical" detox-facility and housing area be established too address our addicted citizens needs, with hopes that a permanent facility be established in the near future.
Petition to Hillary Clinton, Clinton Campaign
Clinton Campaign: Demand Recount of Election
This may not be over. As much as we respect and admire the graciousness of Hillary Clinton’s concession, she may have made it in error. Prominent election lawyers and computer scientists have reached out to the Clinton campaign in the weeks since November 8th to urge them to demand an audit, or recount of the election results. According to these experts, there are serious discrepancies with the results in the swing states that Trump won: Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan. Electronic voting machines are suspected, and may be responsible for the electoral victory of Donald Trump when America spoke and voted overwhelmingly for Hillary Clinton. As it stands, her popular vote lead is over 1.5 million votes. The futures and lives of so many hang in the balance: women, minorities, the LGBT community, and so many more. Not only these lives, but the path of our very democracy, the America we know and love and must fight to preserve hangs in the balance. As we have seen in these last few weeks since the election, white nationalism and neo-nazi groups are gaining momentum, their sociopathic, fascist rhetoric is reaching the mainstream media as never before, and members of Congress are describing how they will leave millions without healthcare and allow fossil fuel superpowers to destroy the progress we've made at lowering carbon emissions in order to combat climate change. President - Elect Trump himself is currently laying the foundations for the destruction of the freedom of the press even before inauguration. We implore you Hillary, and the Clinton campaign: please demand an audit, ensure the millions of Americans and citizens of the world abroad, may not have to face a future of fear, oppression, fascism, and environmental catastrophe. We must fight against this dark future for our country.
Petition to President Donald Trump
END PERMANENT ALIMONY FOR ALL AMERICANS - Make America Great Again!
My husband and I have been ordered to pay PERMANENT lifelong alimony of $3000 a month, under the antiquated laws of the state of New Jersey. We have petitioned Governor Chris Christie, who has changed the law by no longer allowing permanent alimony - however this law does not effect all the unfortunate Americans who have been sentenced to permanent alimony before the law was reformed. The next logical step is to free the prisoners of permanent alimony that have not been released by the changes of law. We are sick of this ball and chain called permanent alimony weighing us down - and we know there are many other American's out there suffering from the same form of financial bondage, they have written to us with their stories of poverty - due to permanent alimony. Recipients of permanent alimony should be the burden of the government and not private citizens. This is a form of slavery and is the opposite of freedom and the opposite of what America stands for. The reason most people get divorced is to be free of a partner who is not cooperative or productive - why should the productive partner be punished for life? There is no incentive for the alimony recipient to be full and productive, when they receive a check every month. It encourages laziness. It is a welfare system, and as such, should be the responsibility of the government. When a child reaches the age of 18, financial obligation of the parent is over - how can the financial obligation to an ex-spouse continue indefinitely? We will not be silenced anymore! Our voices will be heard. Permanent Alimony is UNCONSTITUTIONAL. It is UNJUST. AND JUST PLAIN NOT FAIR! Thank you for your support! Let's make America Great Again by putting an end to permanent alimony!
