Action Center

Speaking out to hold our leaders accountable and let them know the public is watching is vital to participatory democracy. The progressive movement and the fight to defend the American Way depend on the grassroots engagement of everyday Americans. When we speak en masse with petitions, phone calls, rallies, and other actions, our individual voices are amplified, and decision makers from elected officials to CEOs take notice.

All Actions

  • Demand the House Expels Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene!

    According to a bombshell new report, newly elected Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) indicated support for the execution of prominent Democrats just a year before she ran for Congress! Sign the petition now DEMANDING that Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene be immediately expelled from Congress!

  • The House must pass the COUP Act!

    The COUP (Congressional Oversight of Unjust Policing) Act introduced by U.S. House Rep. Jamaal Bowman is essential for a rapid reassessment of Capitol security & Capitol Police practices after the January 6 Insurrection. Tell the House to pass it without delay!

  • Tell Congress: Censure Key Members Who Enabled the Insurrection!

    Senators Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley, along with House Republican leaders Rep. Kevin McCarthy and Rep. Steve Scalise, played a reprehensible role in attempting to overturn a free and fair election on January 6. Since they do not have the decency to resign, then at a minimum, these four must face official censure by their respective chambers.

  • Tell the Senate: Vote to Convict Trump For Inciting An Insurrection!

    Trump’s dangerous disregard for the responsibilities of our nation’s highest office and his role in inciting the violent insurrection at the U.S. Capitol is unconscionable and unacceptable. The Senate must vote to convict Trump.

  • Tell the House: It’s Time to Overturn Citizens United!

    Sign the petition now to demand that the House of Representatives pass the Democracy For All Amendment H.J. Res. 1! We must bring an end to the overwhelming political dominance of ultra-wealthy individuals and corporations.

  • A Call for Accountability

    The January 6 insurrection requires a vigorous response on many fronts to ensure accountability for those who incited the insurrection, those who participated in it, and those who enabled it. People For the American Way has launched a multi-pronged campaign to hold ALL who were involved accountable, directly or indirectly, in the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. Add your name to support People For's campaign to hold them accountable.

  • Facebook must change its political ad policy and stop the lies!

    For years, Facebook has denied or downplayed its role in spreading political disinformation. Demand that Facebook reinstate its policy of third-party fact-checking of paid political advertising.

  • Tell the Senate: Reject John Ratcliffe!

    After a failed nomination just last fall, President Trump has decided to RENOMINATE one of his favorite political lackey's – Rep. John Ratcliffe, to be Director of National Intelligence – a role he is completely unqualified to fill. Sign the petition today and demand that the Senate once again REJECT political lackey, John Ratcliffe!

  • Demand an Investigation into Roger Stone’s Sentencing Recommendation!

    Following a lengthy investigation and conviction of President Trump’s right-hand man, Roger Stone, Trump publicly and vociferously criticized the sentencing recommendation made by career Department of Justice officials after which DOJ leaders withdrew the recommendations and called for a more lenient sentence. The Department of Justice’s Inspector General should investigate this matter and the House Judiciary Committee should demand answers from the Department of Justice as well.

  • Urge the Senate to Pass the VRAA!

    The Voting Rights Advancement Act is a chance to restore protections against this kind of discrimination and ensure that every American is able to exercise their fundamental right to participate in our elections.

  • Tell Congress—it’s time for the Equal Rights Amendment

    There is current legislation in Congress to remove the deadline and allow for the Equal Rights Amendment’s adoption—together we can ensure that the ERA is written into the Constitution and that all Americans are protected from discrimination on the basis of sex.

  • Tell Congress to Demand Transparency on Special Counsel Mueller’s Findings!

    It's critical that members of Congress stand up for the national interest and demand transparency for Mueller's report and other findings.

  • Tell the Senate: No More Extreme Trump Judges!

    The disastrous consequences of Trump's judicial appointments are already reverberating throughout our nation, as many of his judges have begun dismantling the rights and protections that millions rely on.

  • Tell Congress to Pass a Resolution to Terminate the President’s Emergency Declaration!

    Trump’s fake "national emergency" declaration is an unlawful and unconstitutional assault on the checks and balances our democracy relies on. But Congress can pass a resolution to stop Trump and his fake emergency!

  • Tell the Senate: Oppose Neomi Rao!

    President Trump’s nominee for the DC Circuit Court of Appeals, Neomi Rao, is -- unsurprisingly -- another extreme, out-of-touch nominee. Rao has a disturbing record on LGBTQ, race, and sexual assault. In her writings, Rao has placed blame on sexual assault survivors, questioned the legitimacy of LGBTQ equality (calling it a "trendy political movement"), and lamented multiculturalism. Sign the petition and urge the senate to oppose Rao's nomination.

  • Urge your Congressperson to Support the Equality Act to Protect the LGBTQ Community!

    Our nation’s civil rights laws protect people on the basis of race, color, national origin, and in most cases, sex, disability, and religion. However our current federal law does not provide the same protections based on sexual orientation or gender identity, and we believe its time for that to change. The Equality Act ensures that every person will be afforded equal protection under the law by making it illegal discriminate on the basis of LGBTQ identity. Sign the petition urging your congressperson to support the Equality Act.

  • Tell the Senate: Oppose William Barr as Attorney General!

    President Trump’s nomination of William Barr to serve as Attorney General is just the latest in a string of attempts to undermine the Mueller Russia investigation and it must be stopped. Urge your senators to OPPOSE William Barr’s nomination as AG. Trump has a clear agenda in selecting Barr and we must not allow another political lackey to fill the vacancy.

  • Tell Your Representative to Officially Censure Representative Steve King!

    Rep. Steve King has a history of supporting white supremacists and stoking racial tensions. His recent comments that he did not understand how the terms “white nationalist” and “white supremacist” became offensive are blatantly racist and entirely unacceptable. Sign the petition and urge your Representative to support a Congressional censure.

  • Urge your Representative to Support H.R. 1 in the 116th Congress!

    A bold, progressive vision for the future of our country’s democracy will be the first bill House Democrats will introduce in the 116th Congress. The reform package seeks to restore and strengthen principles progressives have long championed as essential to ensuring that the voice of Americans are reflected in the policies and actions of their elected officials. Sign the petition urging your incoming member to support H.R. 1 today!

  • Tell Congress to Protect the Mueller Investigation!

    Just after the midterm elections, President Trump FIRED Jeff Sessions as his Attorney General and appointed one of his political lackeys, Matt Whitaker, as interim AG. Now that Sessions has been fired, Whitaker has taken the lead on overseeing Robert Mueller's Russia investigation -- clearly an attempt to put a strangle on the investigation before it proceeds any further. Members of both parties need to co-sponsor and publicly support passage of the Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act!
