I used MoveOn's free petition platform last year to help convince the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to reject money from the gun, tobacco, and, payday loan industries. Thousands of people from across the country signed on to say our politics shouldn't be bought off by special interests―and our voices were heard!
Progressive issues such as ending corporate influence on our politics are important to me, because our daughter was slaughtered at a movie theater in the 2012 Aurora, Colorado, mass shooting. My husband and I are trying our best to turn our mourning into something positive for others―which is why we were so inspired by the thousands who signed our petition last year.
I have been organizing and speaking out wherever I can―in front of Congress, in media interviews, at rallies to stop gun violence, and by working with organizations across the country. My MoveOn petition was a critical part of mobilizing caring people to make progress, but we can't stop now.
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.
By using MoveOn's free, user-friendly petition tools, you can create your very own petition in just minutes.
I know from personal experience that MoveOn will support you as your petition is taking off, 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.
It can feel frustrating to wait for others to initiate changes in your community or on issues which mean so much to you. Don't wait. You can start organizing now.
Thanks for all you do.
