Dozens of wallabies were found dead in a remote area of Australia, the victims of a violent massacre at the hands of an unknown culprit. These animals appear to have been shot and bludgeoned and then allowed to rot. Sign this petition to demand justice for these innocent creatures.
Animal abusers are currently protected under a potentially unconstitutional law in Iowa that prohibits animal rights advocates and employees from filming or photographing unsafe or inhumane conditions on factory farms. Sign this petition to challenge the agricultural industry’s desire to keep potential abuse out of the public eye and demand that this law be overturned.
The Trump Administration is about to allow oil and gas companies to conduct drilling and fracking operations along the majestic Colorado River. This not only threatens the drinking water of 40 million people, but also the habitat of countless wild animals. Sign this petition to demand these dirty plans be stopped.
Right now two U.S. Representatives are pushing bills that could force states and localities to allow the sale of dangerous and inhumanely produce products like for foie gras, horsemeat and eggs from caged chickens.

Public health advocates and the EPA have been pushing to ban the use of the harmful pesticide chlorpyrifos for years. But even with substantial evidence that chlorpyrifos can interfere with children’s brain development and expose farmworkers to serious health risks, Dow Chemical – a company that sells these harmful pesticides regardless of the dangerous consequences – has been pushing the Trump administration to ignore the facts and let this poisoning continue unchecked.
Now, EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt is siding with Dow instead of the American people, reversing a proposed ban to prevent the use of this hazardous chemical on our food. We can’t stand idly by as Dow Chemical buys its way into the ear of Donald Trump to keep destroying our people and our planet with these highly toxic chemicals.
Scientists agree this pesticide shouldn’t be anywhere near the foods we eat, and even doctors are speaking out against this dangerous decision. The EPA exists to protect Americans – but under Scott Pruitt, all it’s doing is protecting the profits of corporations like Dow at the expense of everyone else. We need 100,000 people to speak out and show the EPA that we won’t stand for this dangerous scheme.
Add your name to demand the EPA stop Dow Chemical from poisoning our children!
