Have a petition idea for Inwood?

Petitions are powerful. Start a petition today to make your voice heard.

Dear fellow MoveOn member,

I didn't know the power of petitions until I started creating them. They have helped me build real-world people power that helped save a few local families from being broken apart by Trump's deportation machine.

Click here to create your own petition to build power and support an issue, a person, or a group of people you care about in Inwood, or anywhere else in the country.

Here's one quick story:

We had 2 1/2 days. On a cold Saturday in November, 2017, we were asked to help a member of our community, Miriam Martinez-Lemus, avoid deportation before she was to board a plane for Guatemala and leave her daughter—who has diabetes and is a citizen of the United States—to fend for herself. Miriam's daughter's doctors said the medical system in Guatemala was not equipped to care for a child with complicated juvenile diabetes.

We immediately launched a MoveOn petition—signed by more than 10,000 MoveOn members like you—that lifted up Miriam's story, attracted media attention, and helped us mobilize dozens of people to a local demonstration and a vigil, which were also covered by local media.

And we won. The MoveOn petition effectively helped build the people power we needed to keep Miriam where she belonged—with her family.

By using MoveOn's user-friendly petition tools, you can create your very own petition. 

Do you have any ideas for a petition for Inwood or nationwide that could build power on an issue you care about? Click here to start building power with your petition.

I know from personal experience that the MoveOn team will be there to support you, from helping build support for your petition by connecting you to other MoveOn members to reimbursing you for printing costs to deliver your petition in person—one of the best ways to get your message heard and make an impact. 

Will you start a petition right now on an issue that you're passionate about that affects your community, or even the entire nation?

Thanks for all you do.

Major election shake-up

Stunning news out of Texas: Beto O'Rourke, "a peppy, rangy, toothy progressive" Senate candidate is STATISTICALLY TIED with Texas' far-right wingnut Senator Ted Cruz in a new poll.

Dear MoveOn member,

We won a special Senate election in Alabama.

We won in the special House election in PA-18—a district that Donald Trump won by 20 points; that's a 21-point swing in just 15 months.

And now, stunning news out of Texas: Beto O'Rourke, "a peppy, rangy, toothy progressive" Senate candidate is STATISTICALLY TIED with Texas' far-right wingnut Senator Ted Cruz in a new poll.1,2

Not only are O'Rourke and Cruz statistically tied, but O'Rourke's been able to match Cruz in fundraising—all while refusing money from Super PACs. Over the past three months, O'Rourke has come from behind to raise more than twice as much as Cruz. O'Rourke has the momentum.

But there's a big problem: The majority of Texans don't yet know enough about O'Rourke to have an opinion of him.3

If Beto O'Rourke is able to define himself and reach voters now, he will win. On the other hand, if Cruz is able to define O'Rourke before he can get his message out to voters, then he will lose. Which is where you come in.

Will you rush an urgent $3 donation to Beto O'Rourke right now, so that he can get his message out across Texas and fight against Ted Cruz's lies?

Yes, I'll chip in now.

MoveOn members in Texas voted overwhelmingly to support Beto O'Rourke. He's the real deal because:

  • He's refused to take any money from Super PACs, instead relying on hundreds of thousands of small-dollar grassroots donations from folks like you to fuel his work.4
  • He has already raised over $13 million from grassroots donations, including receiving 141,000 individual contributions in the past three months alone—far outpacing Cruz.5
  • He wants to know what Texans care about. He's held more than 200 town hall events across the state.6
  • He's fighting for universal health care coverage, unlike Cruz, who's led the fight to repeal the Affordable Care Act.7

We have a golden opportunity to send a true progressive from Texas to the Senate this fall, and maybe even tip the balance of power in the Senate. But Cruz has a huge network of donors—many of whom are millionaires and billionaires, dedicated to keeping Republican control in Congress, which means that O'Rourke has an uphill battle to combat Cruz's nearly limitless cash.

While O'Rourke is committed to small-dollar grassroots donations from folks like us, pro-Cruz Super PACs are standing by ready to dump millions of dollars into misleading ads to bad-mouth O'Rourke before the campaign even heats up. If O'Rourke doesn't have enough funds to even respond to these lies, then he will lose.

It's not fair, but that's the way it is. To take Cruz on, Beto O'Rourke needs us, right now, not later in September or October. Which is why I'm asking you today:

Will you chip in $3 to help Beto O'Rourke get his message out, before Ted Cruz and his mega-rich Super PACs paint Beto with smears and lies?

If we win in Texas, we truly can win anywhere. We could even take back the House AND Senate this fall. What's needed now is our early action, dedication, and commitment.

Together, we can help Beto O'Rourke make history. But we have to make an early investment to get it done.

Thanks for all you do.

You won't want to miss this book

This November, Stacey Abrams has the chance to make history. On the same night that Democrats could end Republican control of Congress, Stacey could become the first ever Black woman elected governor in the United States.

Dear MoveOn member,

This November, Stacey Abrams has the chance to make history. On the same night that Democrats could end Republican control of Congress, Stacey could become the first ever Black woman elected governor in the United States.

That's right, in the entire history of America, a Black woman has never been elected governor in any state—but Stacey is ready to change that.

In her new book out next week, "Minority Leader: How to Lead from the Outside and Make Real Change," Stacey not only shares her inspiring journey but also provides a handbook that applies to many other communities and individuals working for the common good.

Over 82% of MoveOn members in Georgia, where Stacey is running, voted to endorse her last year. Her book comes out right before her primary on May 22, and together we can help shine a national spotlight on her right before voters go to the polls. How? By helping to get her book on the best-seller list!

Click here to pre-order your copy—and help get Stacey's book on the best-seller list to help boost her profile before voters in Georgia go to the polls!

Stacey didn't grow up with much, so as an adult she has dedicated her career to giving back to her home state and helping make the lives of Georgians better. She founded the New Georgia Project, which registered over 200,000 voters of color from 2014 to 2016. She co-founded a financial services firm to help small businesses grow and bring more jobs to Georgia. And in 2011, she became the House minority leader in Georgia's General Assembly—the first Black woman to ever lead either party in the state.

In "Minority Leader," Stacey describes the experience faced by so many marginalized communities in our country: that institutional barriers are keeping dreams out of reach. But with passion—and compassion—she lays out a path to achieve those dreams and disrupt the systems that have kept them out of reach.

Click here to pre-order her book now, and help MoveOn get her book on the best-seller list!

Stacey Abrams has spent her life speaking up for marginalized communities, standing up to those in power, and showing up to make life better for everyone around her. Now it is our turn to do the same for her.

Thanks for all you do.

Sunday's national organizing call: Trump Is Not Above the Law

Join Karine Jean-Pierre to discuss the stakes of this fever-pitch moment for the Mueller investigation and how we can all take effective action in our communities to defend the investigation from Trump's interference.

Dear MoveOn member,

Donald Trump could fire special counsel Robert Mueller or his boss, Rod Rosenstein, or otherwise act to end his independent investigation any day. He's tried to do it more than once before—and as his personal lawyer, finances, and members of his inner circle get caught up in the web of investigations, he could recklessly react with a move that would push us into a constitutional crisis.1

That's why we have to be ready to resist such a move by Trump—and to make sure Americans of all walks of life and politicians of both parties stand up to declare, "Nobody is above the law."

This Sunday at 7:30 p.m. ET (6:30 CT/5:30 MT/4:30 PT), MoveOn's senior strategist and national spokesperson, Karine Jean-Pierre, will host a call to discuss the stakes of this fever-pitch moment and how we can all take effective action in our communities.

Because you have registered for our "Ready to Resist" series of national organizing calls in the past, a few minutes before the training begins, you'll receive a call at the phone number you previously listed. No further actions is required, though you can click here to register a different phone number or come back to this link at the time of the call to listen via computer.

RSVP to join the emergency call: Trump Is Not Above the Law

For the first time in months, there is finally momentum on the bipartisan legislation to insulate Mueller's investigation from Trump's attempts to overpower it—the Senate Judiciary Committee chair will bring it to a vote, and the House bill has picked up four new Republican sponsors, leading one Capitol Hill journalist to declare that "the dam is beginning to break" (which is great—but also means we have our work cut out for us to get the other 200+ House Republicans on board!).2

This Sunday's call will be a strategy update and training on how to build this pressure and protect the investigation—or be ready if Trump moves to end it.

Click here to share info about the call on Facebook. And click here to share info about the call on Twitter.

We can take action right now to defend the Mueller investigation and ensure we all learn the truth about Russian interference in our elections. And we can also keep building our massive rapid-response network that's ready to act if Trump seeks to end the investigation.

MoveOn members have already generated tens of thousands of calls to the Senate and House to pass bipartisan legislation to defend the Mueller investigation from White House interference—and now is a critical moment to increase that pressure and pull more Republicans, as well as Democrats, to defend democracy rather than the demagogue in the White House.

And MoveOn, alongside dozens of partner organizations such as the Sierra Club, Public Citizen, Stand Up America, March for Truth, and SEIU, has built a remarkable network of more than 900 events with over 360,000 participants that would launch within 24 hours of a firing. But there's still work to shore up that rapid-response plan and to invite even more folks in our communities to join in this work.

We'll be discussing these opportunities and others on Sunday—and this call will catapult us directly into action we can take right after the call and into next week. And you'll get a call at the number you used when you previously registered for our series of national organizing calls—but click here if you want to change your number, or return to this page if you want to listen via computer.

It's no secret that our democracy has always been imperfect. It has left out and failed too many of us, especially communities of color, that have been marginalized in America for centuries. Together, we can build a democracy that respects us all—one in which we truly experience equal protection under the law and have access to participate in our communities and our government.

Trump is attempting to undo the progress that we, and generations before us, fought for and won—and he's escalating his attacks to further his racist and destructive agenda, as he seeks to shred our civic institutions and the fiber of our critical, if imperfect, democracy. He is a man whose illegal and unconstitutional missile strike on Syria may have been timed to distract from the legal issues swamping him at home. There's no limit to the destruction he could cause if we don't stand up, together, to declare that nobody, not even Donald Trump, is above the law—and hold accountable the Republican enablers who continue to turn a blind eye to his abuses.

Thank you for joining us in this fight. Hope you can join us on Sunday's call.

Thanks for all you do.

Call Now: Senate needs to #StopPompeo

Your senator is a key vote to block Trump's war cabinet and Pompeo's nomination to secretary of state. Your senator is a key vote to block Trump's war cabinet and Pompeo's nomination to secretary of state.

Dear MoveOn member,

Donald Trump's march to war continues. The illegal attack in Syria last week marks the latest in a series of moves that the Trump administration has taken toward aggressive military action.

Call Senator Charles E. Schumer now and tell him to take the first step in blocking Trump's war cabinet by voting no on Mike Pompeo's nomination for secretary of state.

Just weeks into the job, there are reports that newly appointed national security adviser John Bolton is encouraging Trump's worst warmongering instincts; battling against military advisors like Defense Secretary Jim Mattis who promoted restraint.1

Pompeo would be another "yes man" in the Trump administration, bringing our country closer to war. Pompeo has used his position at the CIA to politicize data and uses his influence to stoke conflict.2 Plus, he wants to roll back the successful Iran nuclear deal, throwing away years of hard work and diplomacy.3

Click here to call Sen. Schumer and tell him to vote no on Pompeo.

Sen. Schumer is a key vote in the Senate and voted for Pompeo when he was nominated to be director of the CIA. But several senators who voted for him as CIA director have said that the role of secretary of state is fundamentally different and they will vote against his confirmation.5 If all Democrats and independents stand strong against this nomination now—along with Senator Rand Paul, who opposes Pompeo, and Senator John McCain, who isn't voting—we can defeat his nomination.

Pompeo's record demonstrates that he is unfit to represent America to the world. Beyond his warmongering stance, he is also Islamophobic, a climate change denier, anti-choice, anti-LGTBQ rights, and in favor of torture.4 No Senator should endorse these hateful views being broadcast globally in our names.

That is why Senators Tim Kaine, Dianne Feinstein, Amy Klobuchar, and Brian Schatz have already declared that they will switch their vote and oppose Pompeo. Now we need Sen. Schumer to join them.

The vote on Pompeo is likely to happen next week. Act now: Click here to call Sen. Schumer and demand that he vote to #StopPompeo.

Thanks for all you do.

Trump’s reckless, unconstitutional war-making

In the wake of Trump bombing Syria, what do we need to do? Stop Pompeo. Invest in diplomacy. Seek congressional oversight of US war-making. Welcome refugees. In the wake of Trump bombing Syria, what do we need to do? Stop Pompeo. Invest in diplomacy. Seek congressional oversight of US war-making. Welcome refugees.

Dear MoveOn member,

No. War.

War is not the answer. Trump's illegal military strike on Syria last night did nothing to alleviate the wrenching devastation of the seven-year-old Syrian civil war. And MoveOn members cannot and will not allow more war to be the way Trump—struggling, isolated, reckless—tries to distract from the crises in his own White House and his floundering presidency.

Trump has been making moves to become a "war president"—from his obsession with a military parade to his recent picks of war hawks John Bolton as national security adviser and Mike Pompeo for secretary of state to last night's reckless and unconstitutional attack.

Some Democrats—including Senators Chris Murphy and Bernie Sanders and Representatives Ro Khanna, Barbara Lee, and Jerry Nadler—have spoken up with a clear and compelling message, calling this attack unconstitutional, illegal, and destructive and demanding both congressional authority for any war-making and an investment in diplomacy instead of in missile strikes.

Here are a few ways MoveOn members are taking action to respond to last night:

  • Demanding real solutions to alleviate the terrible suffering of the Syrian people—such as welcoming refugees whose lives have been destroyed by this war into the safety of the United States and sending aid to the 3.2 million people the U.N. says require urgent assistance. Syria is one of the banned countries on the Muslim Ban, which blocks all immigrant and non-immigrant visas.1 And one of the most shocking and telling statistics about this current moment is that the U.S. has only admitted 11—yes, 11—Syrian refugees in the past year.2 Add your name to demand that the U.S. welcome more Syrian refugees.
  • Working to stop Mike Pompeo. This strike is unconstitutional and reckless—and every political leader should acknowledge that. While we can't reverse Trump's decision to launch missiles, and while John Bolton's appointment does not require confirmation hearings, we can stop the Islamophobic and anti-diplomacy hawk Mike Pompeo from becoming secretary of state. Eleven Senators and counting have already said they'll oppose his nomination—and if every Democrat and Independent unites with a handful of Republicans, we can stop Pompeo and confront Trump's war Cabinet. Sign the petition to call on the Senate to reject Donald Trump's nomination of Mike Pompeo for secretary of state.
  • Getting ready for rapid-response protests in case of a major escalation of Trump's war-making. With allies, we are readying a rapid-response network that can launch anti-war events around the country should Trump escalate further. This network—anchored by dedicated MoveOn members, with 870 actions already prepared—has been in development for a year. Text UNITED to 668366 to get text updates from MoveOn, including invitations to rapid-response rallies and timely call alerts.

Thousands of MoveOn members, and our whole staff team, spent Thursday and Friday this week preparing our mobilizations if Trump fired Rosenstein or Mueller. That's still a very real threat, and for all we know, he's hoping to get a bump of international goodwill from this bombing escapade—and ride that to even more reckless action and a constitutional crisis.

The good news is we are prepared and mobilized. MoveOn members have been fighting unjust wars for years and combating the Trump presidency at every turn. And now is a time to speak up—because we are the leaders we need, and our actions can force politicians to follow.

Thanks for all you do.
