Moveon.org – Free Sticker! “Your Vote is Power!”

People in line until after midnight in Georgia. Voters locked out of their polling places in Louisville.

“If your vote held no power, no one would try to silence you.”

The November elections will be some of the most critical elections of our lifetimes. We say it so often because it’s true. And you have a powerful role between now and November 3.

Today, MoveOn is launching Your Vote Is Power, a brand-new initiative that will use art and culture to drive voter registrations with the goal of turning out an unprecedented number of young voters and people of color this November. Your Vote Is Power is a partnership of MoveOn and Amplifier, in collaboration with emerging and leading visual artists.

In the months leading up to the November elections, MoveOn members will work to inspire new voters to go to the polls through innovative voter engagement tactics, art installations, distribution of posters, stickers, postcards, and other creative tactics that create a culture of voting.

We are offering free stickers displaying one of the initial works of art to all MoveOn members. You can get the first one right out the gate!

Become part of our Your Vote Is Power campaign by getting your free sticker, designed by artist Thomas Wimberly, now. Just click here or on the image below!

Young people and people of color, along with women, immigrants, LGBTQ people, and others, are disproportionately impacted by federal and state policies and Supreme Court rulings. But too often, they are shut out of the political conversation, are told that their votes don’t matter, or face long lines, dysfunctional systems, broken machines, and changing and arbitrarily enforced rules that prevent their votes from being cast or counted.

The past few months have been a preview of what November could look like, as people in states like Georgia, Kentucky, and Wisconsin were forced to wait in long lines for hours to vote in primaries. The longest lines were in communities of color, where, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, voters had to choose between risking their health and exercising their right to vote.

But we can change this.

By acting together, we can build a better country where everyone can thrive.

Petition: Weekly benefit for essential workers

Click here and add your name to the petition calling on Congress to demand that essential workers receive a $600 weekly federal stimulus benefit during the COVID-19 pandemic.

mailDear fellow MoveOn member,

My name is Dana, and I am one of the many essential workers still actively employed.

As essential workers, we are doing the important work of supporting this country—but we are not being cared for by our politicians and lawmakers.

Just like those who have been laid off or furloughed, essential workers should receive a $600 weekly federal stimulus benefit for working during the COVID-19 pandemic.

During the pandemic, essential workers have had to make huge adjustments to our normal work routines. We are working longer hours while wearing masks to protect ourselves and everyone we come in contact with, and our daily job functions have increased because we are short-staffed. We are also homeschooling our children, and some of us have even had to be separated from our families.

Essential workers are keeping the U.S. economy in motion, and we should be cared for by our government.

Politicians are praising us and telling the public that what we do is so important that this country would fall apart without us. But while we’re being called heroes, we are not being compensated for keeping America running.

It’s past time for Congress to ensure that essential workers receive a $600 weekly federal stimulus benefit.

Sign Dana’s petition

We are instructors and educators; grocery store clerks; janitors; factory, postal, farm, insurance, food, veterinary, and domestic workers; commercial and public transportation drivers; licensed, skilled, and unskilled medical professionals; emergency response teams; state and federal employees; and many more. We put our lives, as well as the lives of our families, at risk by continuing to go to work every day.

Essential workers need to know that politicians and lawmakers are in our corner, and that’s why I will not give up this fight demanding Congress pass legislation for essential workers to receive a $600 weekly federal stimulus benefit.

Click here to add your name to my petition, and then pass it along to your friends.

Thanks!

–Dana Jeffcoat

Moveon.org: Start your own petition!

I’m writing to you today to ask you to take action.

I don’t need to explain to you the unique difficulty of the situation we’re in right now. I know that you understand just how serious, important, and unprecedented this moment is. Communities across the country have been rising up and protesting police brutality and systemic discrimination, and they’re being met with disproportionately violent repression. All the while, a pandemic continues to ravage our country at an appalling rate: Over 100,000 have died from COVID-19 thus far, and that number continues to climb by the day.mail

I know that you aren’t going to just observe from the sidelines. MoveOn’s 20-year history has shown that MoveOn members like you take action in a big way—especially when things are really bad. You don’t just observe, you act.

Will you take action right now by starting an online petition on an issue that’s impacting you or your community during this tumultuous time?

Get started today and start a petition on an issue that matters to you.

What upsets you the most right now? Having seen the Trump administration’s dangerous rhetoric fanning the flames of police violence and racial hatred, will you step up and call for Trump to stop? Start a petition to Donald Trump demanding that he take the demands of protesters seriously.

Are you ready to call for massive police reform amidst all this police violence? You can start a petition to your local government to cut police funding and reallocate it to health and social services.

Have your local, state, or federal representatives accepted police union donations? Create a petition calling on your representatives to refuse donations or donate all police union donations to Black-led organizations, so that they can properly advocate for their communities without fear of reprisal.

I know that you care about many people and issues, and that you want to take action. You might think, “I do, sure, but what will starting a petition do?” It almost feels too easy. A few clicks, a little bit of typing, and that’s supposed to make a difference? But, Robert, I promise you, it does make a difference.

In May of 2019, MoveOn Civic Action joined with coalition partners to organize the largest petition delivery in U.S. history, delivering 10 million signatures calling for impeachment—and Donald Trump was impeached. Petitions show grassroots power and put pressure on politicians to act.

And on May 21 of this year, a petition started by a MoveOn member, calling on Congress to provide essential frontline workers with hazard pay and that has—as of this moment—1,397,913 signatures was delivered to the Senate, along with a petition for an Essential Workers Bill of Rights, to ensure that workers come first in the next relief package passed by Congress.

You have the power to make a difference. Will you start a petition today and advocate for an issue that matters to you?

Thanks for all you do.

Moveon.org: Free Sticker!

There are now only four months left until what could be the most important Election Day in our lifetimes, and we have just one question for you: Are you ready to power the biggest blue wave in history to elect Democrats to the White House and Congress and wash Donald Trump and the GOP out of office?

As we have seen over the past few months, people around the country are ready to demand a new path forward with Joe Biden and with progressive Democrats in the House and Senate.

MoveOn has built the biggest election program in our 22-year history to meet this moment and make sure that on November 3, we defeat Donald Trump and elect leaders like Joe Biden who will fight for our progressive values.

To kick off the final four months until Election Day, we just printed a big batch of these “Blue Wave 2020” stickers, and we’re giving them away for free while supplies last!

Just click here or on the image below to order your free sticker now.

2020 has been a year filled with upheaval, but it has also revealed opportunities for change.

The coronavirus crisis has led to demands that health care be treated as a human right.

The murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and others, along with ongoing police violence, have led to calls to defund the police and address the systemic racism in the United States.

The economic crash has led to a reckoning over inequality and a push to create a country that values people over profits.

On November 3, we have a chance to turn the last four years of protests into policy by defeating Trump, ending GOP control of the Senate, and electing leaders up and down the ballot who will fight for each and every one of us.

This election is a fight for the soul of our nation. And we’re going to win.

Thanks for all you do.

Free Sticker: “We Mail Carriers.” – Moveon.org

Mail carriers are essential workers who are risking their lives to deliver letters, food, and medicine to over 135 million households during the coronavirus pandemic—but instead of supporting them, Donald Trump wants all of them to lose their jobs.

Mailman GIFs | Tenor

Trump has repeatedly refused to include desperately needed aid to the postal service in any relief bills, and he even threatened to veto the first stimulus bill and withhold money from American workers and small businesses if even a cent was directed to the postal service.

We won’t let them get away with it—which is why more than 365,000 MoveOn members have signed a petition to save the post office.

We need to show postal workers we stand with them—and publicly proclaim our commitment to save the post office. That’s why we’ve just printed a big batch of “We ❤ Mail Carriers” stickers and are giving them away for FREE while supplies last.

Click here or on the image below to order your free sticker now, and place it on your mailbox or front door so your mail carrier knows how much you appreciate them!

Trump’s reasoning is nothing short of vindictive: He hates the postal service because they deliver packages for Amazon, whose owner, Jeff Bezos, also owns The Washington Post, a newspaper that isn’t afraid to report the facts and challenge the Trump administration when necessary. And it’s long been part of the right-wing Republican agenda to privatize the USPS.HTTPS, SSL Certs & What They Mean for Your Hotel | Blue ...

And so, Trump and his Republican loyalists want to bankrupt the postal service, cause nearly 600,000 workers—nearly 40% of whom are workers of color—to lose their jobs, rip reliable mail delivery from vast swaths of the country, and, as if all that wasn’t bad enough, ensure that there is no large scale vote-by-mail campaign this November.

Help spread the word that we must save the postal service and show your love for your mail carrier by ordering your free “We ❤ Mail Carriers” sticker now!

Thanks for all you do.

P.S. We’ve also printed special envelopes to mail the stickers, so postal workers will know we are standing with them during these uncertain times. Take a look:

The MoveOn community will work every moment, day by day and year by year, to resist Trump’s agenda, contain the damage, defeat hate with love, and begin the process of swinging the nation’s pendulum back toward sanity, decency, and the kind of future that we must never give up on.

Free sticker! “America for All!” – MoveOn.org

Dear MoveOn member,

Last week, MoveOn unveiled our $20 million 2020 election program, “America for All.” For the next nine months, we will be working to inspire the 7 million “high-potential voters” across 10 critical battleground states to turn out to vote. We’ll mobilize MoveOn members and our allies to volunteer and organize in their communities. And we will flex our digital muscles to protect the right to vote from online disinformation and voter suppression campaigns.

This is the biggest and boldest election program in MoveOn’s history, and although defeating Donald Trump and his Republican allies is critically important, our plan is about so much more than that.

It is about building a more equitable America, where immigrants, refugees, and communities of color are safe and welcome. Protecting the lives and dignity of trans Americans. Creating true equality for women. Fighting back against out of control corporate greed. Ensuring that health care is a human right. Tackling the climate crisis head on. And so much more.

To celebrate the launch of “America for All” and spread the message that in November we can choose to vote for a better future for our country, MoveOn has just printed a big batch of stickers, and we’re giving them away for free, while supplies last.

Just click here or on the image below to get your free sticker now!

This November is our opportunity to build on the historic blue wave that MoveOn members and our allies powered in 2018 and elect bold progressives to positions up and down the ballot, including president of the United States.

The existential threat of Trump’s presidency is almost over⁠—but only if we all come together to fight for an America for all.

Click here to order your free sticker now and help spread the message of an America for All far and wide!

Thanks for all you do.

The year we’ve been waiting for is finally here: 2020. This year, we’ll do everything in our power to remove Trump from office and elect a progressive champion to create the reforms we need, like Medicare for All and the Green New Deal.

So now we’ve got to get to work.

Start a petition today on an issue that matters to you in November’s election.

Start a petition
Candidates up and down the ballot need to hear from us in order to shape their agenda. Do you want your future senator to prioritize protecting voting rights? Should your future mayor build more affordable housing units? Are the presidential primary candidates addressing issues that matter to you? Tell them by starting a petition and gathering support in your community.

Petitions can change conversations on key issues.

In 2019, the US Youth Climate Strike partnered with MoveOn and started a petition asking the presidential primary candidates to support a televised debate or forum that focused exclusively on environmental issues and policies. Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, and Beto O’Rourke were just a few of the candidates who responded to our petition.

All of this happened because a young, passionate group of people started a petition. It was a powerful moment where a petition helped change the conversation and drew the attention of candidates for the highest office. That’s what we can accomplish together.

So what is important to you this year? Take five minutes and start a petition on it here to influence the 2020 elections.

Thanks for all you do.

Moveon.org: Free Impeachment stickers!

It’s official: The House has just voted to impeach Donald Trump, making him only the third president in United States history to achieve such an infamous designation.

This is an enormous milestone, driven in large part by the work of MoveOn members like you, Robert.

To mark this momentous day—and to remind the senators who will now pick up the process that no one is above the law—MoveOn has printed a big batch of these impeachment stickers, and we’re giving them away for free while supplies last.

Just click here or on the image below to order yours now!

As we move into this next phase of the impeachment and removal fight, let’s not forget just how much work went into building a movement to make this day possible.

MoveOn called for Trump’s impeachment over two years ago, after his first attempts to obstruct the investigation into Russian election meddling, and ever since, MoveOn members and our allies have been steadily growing a coalition of support for impeachment in the face of Trump’s continued, blatant, and unrepentant criminality.

Although the House voted to impeach Trump on only two counts—abuse of power and obstruction of Congress—they point to the larger pattern of his corruption and cruelty.

As the Mueller report laid out, Trump attempted to obstruct that investigation at least ten times, and he encouraged contacts between his campaign and Russian agents.

Not only did he attempt to bribe Ukraine into interfering in the 2020 elections, he then openly called for China to do the same and directed his administration to refuse to cooperate with the House’s investigation of those efforts.

And most heinously, he violated international law by ripping children from their families at the border and holding immigrants and asylum-seekers in concentration camps, often without access to food, water, hygiene products, or medicine.

Donald Trump may not have earned much in his life on his own, but he earned his impeachment.

Now let’s spread the word that Trump is not above the law and make sure that the Senate does its job by convicting and removing him from office.

Petition: Stop the cuts to Food Stamps

The Trump administration recently announced changes to SNAP that will cause hundreds of thousands of people to lose access to their “food stamp” benefits. Will you sign the petition to urge Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue to stop these attacks on families who depend on SNAP?

USDA’s newly proposed rules for SNAP will cut food stamp benefits for hundreds of thousands of hungry people. We demand that you stop these proposed changes before they take effect on April 1, 2020.

According to Feeding America, “SNAP provides families with their basic nutritional needs to get them through temporary hard times. It helps people get back on their feet and on the road to a better life.”

But the Trump administration has been working for the last three years to undermine SNAP as part of their agenda to limit access to public assistance programs.

This newly announced attack on SNAP is especially outrageous, because Congress rejected these proposed changes to the program during the Farm Bill debate last year. The House rejected them in a bipartisan vote of 330-83, and the Senate voted down a similar amendment 68-30.

But now, Sonny Perdue, Trump’s secretary of agriculture, is moving forward with these changes through an undemocratic “executive order” that targets very poor people struggling to work—many of whom are homeless, living in small towns and rural communities with little or no access to employment, or have health conditions that prevent them from working.

Thank you.

My name is Sunjeev Bery, and I love starting petitions.
It’s true! As a former MoveOn staff member, I have been behind the scenes to see the power your signatures have in helping build communities, hold people in power accountable, and win campaigns on a range of issues.
But, Robert, I now run Freedom Forward, an organization dedicated to ending U.S. alliances with dictators, kings, and apartheid governments, and I’m even more impressed with the MoveOn petition platform and resources provided to grassroots activists like us!
In the few months since I started using MoveOn’s free petition platform, tens of thousands of people have signed my petitions calling out human rights abusers around the world. We’ve built an amazing community of MoveOn members and made international headlines since a coalition we are part of pressured the New York Public Library to cancel an event organized by Saudi Arabia’s brutal crown prince, Mohammad Bin Salman this fall.
Mobilizing thousands of supporters was amazing, Robert. And MoveOn members like you didn’t stop there. Every time I sent updates about what else petition signers could do, I was encouraged to see positive feedback from people making phone calls, posting on social media, and showing up to events.
I know that MoveOn has limited resources, just as all organizations do, and that’s what makes me so excited to talk about the petition platform. This is giving power directly to the people without needing to wait for MoveOn to take the initiative to figure out what’s happening in your own community.
Thank you for listening to my story, and good luck with your petition!
