Petition to Susan Collins
Tell Susan Collins to Save Reproductive Rights
We are facing the most serious threat to abortion rights in 45 years. With the retirement of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, President Trump has fulfilled his campaign promise to nominate a highly conservative judge who could overturn Roe v. Wade by nominating Judge Brett Kavanaugh. His nomination could give states the right to outlaw abortion -- ending the right to safe and legal abortion for women across the country. As a mother of two, I had the right and privilege to choose the size and timing of my family; it terrifies me that my sons, nieces, and nephews may not have the same. But there's still a chance to protect reproductive rights. My senator, Republican Senator Susan Collins, could have the deciding vote on Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination for the court – will you join me in asking her to reject his nomination? If Sen. Collins doesn't block Judge Kavanaugh, it’s likely that over 20 states could quickly enact severe restrictions or complete bans on abortion. This means women who can afford it will have to travel out of state to get the care they need. But many won't be able to afford it – which could lead to significant increases in injury and death due to people attempting to terminate their own pregnancies. As the rest of the world progresses forward, we can not stand for the United States to go back. If all 49 Democratic senators vote against Judge Kavanaugh, just one more vote could block their nomination and save access to legal abortion. Sen. Collins is just the person to cast that critical vote. Our reproductive rights have never been in more danger than they are right now. Sign now to tell Senator Collins she must reject Judge Kavanaugh and preserve the right for millions of women to obtain safe and legal access to reproductive care. Remind Collins that however she votes, this will be her LASTING legacy to her country.
Petition to Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp
We Demand Secretary of State and Gubernatorial Candidate Brian Kemp Resign Immediately!
The state of Georgia is approaching perhaps its most critical election yet. The governor’s race between former House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams and current Secretary of State Brian Kemp has been labeled as one of the key races to watch in the 2018 midterm elections. As Election Day draws closer, the Secretary of State’s office is responsible for registering voters, keeping voting machines secure, and ensuring free and fair elections across Georgia-- yet the media reports that Brian Kemp has been shamelessly using his position as Secretary of State in order to promote his own campaign. It is ethically wrong for a politician to oversee the campaign he is a candidate in. That’s why we’re calling on Brian Kemp’s to resign as Secretary of State immediately. For decades, Georgia Secretaries of State from both parties have resigned while running for higher office, in order to assure voters that as a candidate, they will not exploit any unfair advantage and keep elections nonpartisan. In 1996, Georgia Secretary of State Max Cleland, a Democrat, resigned from office to run for U.S. Senate (GA SOS Official Page). In 2009, Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel, a Republican, resigned from office to run for governor. When Handel resigned, she said, “I did not want any perceived conflicts of interest concerning my overseeing the primary or general elections, investigating complaints that arise, and certifying the results of the elections while a candidate for Governor and serving as Secretary of State,”(Georgia Public Broadcasting, 2009). Georgia voters deserve a Secretary of State who will put fair and free elections first-- not his own political gain. It’s time for Brian Kemp to follow in the footsteps of his predecessors from both sides of the aisle and resign as Secretary of State. ADD YOUR NAME to join us in calling for his resignation.
Petition to Secretary Mattis
Defend Veteran Benefits in the Post 9/11 GI Bill
Once again, the benefits our veterans have earned are under attack. The Department of Defense has issued a stunning, damaging new policy that will limit the ability of troops to transfer their hard-earned Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits to their family members. The Post-9/11 GI Bill has sent more than one million veterans to school. It has both helped these veterans in their transition home and trained America’s next greatest generation to lead in tech startups, Fortune 500 corporations, nonprofits, and at every level of government across the country. This new restriction impacts service members with more than 16 years of service and is a completely unnecessary attack on this critical benefit, and ultimately hurts our military recruitment and readiness. In a time of war, it remains critically important to recruit and retain qualified service members, especially with an ever-decreasing pool of eligible recruits. And, it remains essential that our government honor it’s promise to our veterans. This policy change is unacceptable. Join us in calling on the Department of Defense and Secretary Mattis to immediately reverse the policy, and put military veterans and their families first, instead of creating barriers to access deserved benefits. We know this is a critically important benefit for Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) members; 92% of them told us they were eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill with almost 70% of IAVA members using the GI Bill or transferring the benefit to a dependent. We will not allow our GI Bill to be eroded, cut or dismantled. We will #DefendTheGIBill. We’ll continue to hold the line, because we understand that our brothers and sisters in arms deserve it. We need you to stand with veterans. Sign our petition to Secretary of Defense James Mattis and tell him that the GI Bill is an earned benefit that millions of men and women earned on the battlefield.

Impeach Donald J. Trump: The Million American Petition
JAN 13th, 2018 — The Constitution of the United States, Art. 2, S. 4, provides that the president, vice-president, and civil officers of the United States shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of treason, bribery, and/or other high crimes and misdemeanors. We, the undersigned, lobby for the impeachment of Donald J. Trump suspected of treason, in violation of THE USA PATRIOT ACT for conspiring with Russia in tampering with the results of the 2016 election. He and his administration are an immediate threat to national security and his use of intimidation as president presents undeniable challenges in this investigation. Ergo, we petition his immediate removal from office as well as the removal of Vice President Mike Pence and all civil officers appointed under his rule, pending the results of his administration's investigation. Donald J. Trump has violated the Federal law under civil and criminal ordinances with his documented use of libelous and insulting hate speech referencing citizens of color, immigrants, and those of the Muslim faith. His promotion and acceptance of violence towards the above stated has incited violence, discrimination and increased tensions throughout this nation.Furthermore, Donald J. Trump is in violation of state law in the following 34 states: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois,Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Utah, Virginia, Washington, and Wyoming. He is guilty of multiple counts of cyber bullying, before, during and following his election campaign; the most egregious being his statements regarding Mexicans, Muslims, the black community and his continuous taunting of China. Unlawful conduct of any kind, be it past, present or future is unacceptable of any person holding the office of President of the United States of America. He has caused international conflict with our allies and is dangerously close to destroying peaceful foreign relations. Donald J.Trump’s leadership poses a threat to the peace and safety of our nation on both national and international levels. His immoral reputation and misconduct are an embarrassment and threat to the freedoms this country stands for and will not be tolerated by United States citizens. ------------------ THIS IS THE PEOPLES PETITION.

Remove Author Jones from the ballot for Congressional Midterm Elections in Illinois
The 2018 Midterm Elections are months away but one candidate in the Third District is causing a lot of commotion. In 2016 Author Jones was disqualified for making a racist speech about Jews and denying the Holocaust. I hate to tell you guys this but he is running again and this time unopposed. Author Jones is a Nazi, He has denied the Holocaust, He was in the car in Charlottesville when his co-conspirators James Alex Fields Jr. and Nazi leader Richard Spencer ran over and murdered Heather Heyer, and he has been at every Nazi rally from Hayden Lake to Charlottesville. This man should not be running for office. He's a Nazi, he practices hate, he has a Swastika tattoo, he holds the rank of Imperial Wizard in the KKK, he denies the Holocaust, he swears on Mein Kampf, and he is not a nice guy. I am asking Senator Dubin, Senator Duckworth, Governor Rauner, the Illinois Election Commission, and all Illinois voters to remove this evil man from your ballot. We don't need a Nazi in Congress to quote the Illinois Republican Party. "The Illinois Republican Party and our country have no place for Nazis like Author Jones. We strongly oppose his racist views and his candidacy for any public office." Jones is a nobody and a nutjob. He should not be running for public office and it is up to you people signing this petition to keep him out. Please sign the petition, call your leaders in Illinois, write to your leaders in Illinois, and go to the polls and vote. We don't need Jones running for Congress and we don't need Nazis in Washington D.C or running this nation. .

Tell the Trump Administration: Don't spend taxpayer money on a military parade!
On February 6, the Washington Post broke the story that Donald Trump has been pressuring military leaders to organize a military parade in Washington, D.C. There are three reasons why this is a serious mistake. 1) The Cost To put on a military parade of the magnitude Trump purports to want would cost the taxpayers millions, if not tens of millions, of dollars in training, maintenance, and transport dollars alone, not to mention the extra fuel required for driving tanks down Pennsylvania Avenue and flying fighter jets over Washington. How does this expense make sense when the government can barely fund itself? How does this expense make sense when there are around 40,000 veterans sleeping on the streets each night? 2) The Logistics Washington streets and bridges cannot support the weight of seventy-ton tanks. Such a parade would do serious damage to D.C.'s already strained infrastructure. Moreover, organizing and orchestrating a parade would snarl D.C. traffic for days, not only day-of, but also in the days prior as manpower and materiel were put into place. This would profoundly affect the lives of D.C. residents, many of whom are trying to get to work to help provide services for veterans in need. 3) The Readiness Implication Every tank and plane used in this parade is a tank and plane a soldier or airman is not using for training purposes. The lost training days damage our military readiness, and the excessive hours added onto the equipment on parade are an unnecessary use of precious resources. America doesn't need to prove its military strength as if it were ruled by a tinpot dictator. But more importantly, neither the Democratic nor the Republican party should support such an egregious waste of tax dollars and manpower. This is not a partisan issue. This is an American issue.
Petition to U.S. House of Representatives, U.S. Senate
Pass the TIME Act
My name is Kayla McKeon. As the first registered federal lobbyist with Down syndrome, I need your help to show Congress it’s time to pass the Transitioning to Integrated and Meaningful Employment (TIME) Act, H.R. 1377, a bill which will make it illegal for employers to pay individuals with disabilities anything less than a minimum wage. It’s a little known fact that the majority of people with disabilities in our nation are paid below the federal minimum wage - sometimes as little as 30 cents an hour. There is no other class of people that employers can legally pay so little.People with disabilities are ready, willing and able to work but struggle to gain economic self-sufficiency due to the antiquated laws that hold us back. Now is the time to claim our civil right to earn a fair and equal wage! The National Down Syndrome Society, the leading human rights organization for all individuals with Down syndrome, has identified subminimum wage as one of the issues that we need and can work quickly to change. Passing the TIME Act will amend Section 14c of the Fair Labor Standards Act that allows employers to pay individuals with disabilities below minimum wage. Passing the TIME Act will be a huge step forward for individuals with Down syndrome and other disabilities. I love being the first registered lobbyist with Down syndrome because I get to work with representatives and senators to help make our lives better. I have always believed if they can see my face or others with a personal story, they will remember us when they are voting. I want them to remember me and how I am capable of doing this job and deserve to be paid fair and equal wages. My friends deserve the same - they are capable and deserve to be paid accordingly, that is why I am working so hard to pass the TIME Act. Join me in my fight for a fair and equal wage for all people with disabilities. Please sign this petition to show your support and ask your elected representative to cosponsor the TIME Act, H.R. 1377.
Petition to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf
MPA Imran Shah must resign

I am creating this petition because I did NOT vote for this NayaPakistan and dont accept this act at all. Please forward this petition to all your fellow citizens and show your support to the victim that he is not alone and that we are altogether in this country.
