Divest or put in a blind trust all of the President's business and financial assets 349,962 signatures Threshold: 100,000

Waiting for a response since Feb 19, 2017

In keeping with tradition and to avoid the appearance of conflicts of interest, corruption, and violations of the emoluments clause of the US Constitution, President Trump should divest his financial and business holdings or have them administered by a truly blind trust.

Waiting for a response since Feb 19, 2017

The unprecedented economic conflicts of this administration need to be visible to the American people, including any pertinent documentation which can reveal the foreign influences and financial interests which may put Donald Trump in conflict with the emoluments clause of the Constitution.


Donald Trump: Resign as President of the United States in Violation of the Emoluments Clause. Release Your Tax Returns 133,872 signatures Threshold: 100,000

Waiting for a response since Feb 19, 2017

The President violates the Title of Nobility Clause, as explained in Article I, Section 9 of the United States Constitution. The clause states: No title of nobility shall be granted by the United States: and no person holding any office of profit or trust under them, shall, without the consent of the Congress, accept of any present, emolument, office, or title, of any kind whatever, from any king, prince, or foreign state. Donald Trump has known financial ties with Russia, and owes hundreds of millions of dollars in debt to banks in foreign countries, such as China. The complicated business entanglements create a conflict of interest for national security issues. The American People deserve to see his tax returns. Donald Trump needs to resign as President of the United States.


Let American Farmers Grow Hemp Once Again to Create Jobs and Rebuild the Rural Economy 106,899 signatures Threshold: 100,000

Waiting for a response since Feb 19, 2017

Industrial hemp was once a dominant crop on the American landscape. This hardy and renewable resource was refined for various industrial applications, including paper, textiles, and cordage. Unfortunately hemp was conflated with marijuana but hemp can't be used as a drug. Over time, the use of industrial hemp has evolved into an even greater variety of products, including health foods, body care, clothing, auto parts, construction materials, biofuels, plastic composites and more. Farmers in Europe, Canada and China all grow hemp and over $600 million in imported hemp products were sold in the USA in 2016. Congress has 2 bipartisan bills which would bring back hemp farming and create rural jobs. We request that President Trump work with Congress to pass hemp legislation in 2017


Preserve the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities 217,949 signatures Threshold: 100,000

Waiting for a response since Feb 20, 2017

The Arts and Humanities are a vital part of our cultural identity and enhance the quality of our lives. They connect us to the past, they speak to us in the present, and they are our legacy, our gift to the future. Investing in them is never a waste, and I strongly urge that both the National Endowment for the Arts and National Endowment for the Humanities continue to receive federal funding.


Do not defund the NEA or NEH 111,357 signatures Threshold: 100,000

Waiting for a response since Feb 20, 2017

Recent reports suggest President Donald Trump plans to defund the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Without the NEA and NEH, artists and educators could be left without crucial government grants for their projects. Everything from orchestral performances to music enrichment programs in public schools would be negatively impacted. Funding for the national endowments are a minuscule portion -- 0.004% (!) -- of the nearly $4 trillion federal budget. In 2016, the NEA and NEH each received $148 million in funding. We ask President Trump to support the arts by not defunding the NEA and NEH.


xEAST SEAx - Change US Policy to Recognize Both EAST SEA & Sea of Japan. Both IHO & UNCSGN Recommend Concurrent Usage. 108,321 signatures Threshold: 100,000

Waiting for a response since Apr 20, 2017

Name of Sea between Korea and Japan is in dispute: 1. EAST SEA was used by Koreans more than 2,000 years. Korean National Anthem starts with EAST SEA. 2. EAST SEA was marked as Sea of Japan in the World Map at IHO Meeting in 1929. Korea was occupied by Japanese Military Force and could not raise a voice. 3. In 1974 & 1977, Both IHO & UNCSGN Recommended Concurrent Usage of EAST SEA and Sea of Japan. 4. UN Resolution said xA policy of accepting only one or some of such names while excluding the rest would be inconsistent as well as inexpedient in practice.x 5. In 2014, Virginia passed a Legislation to have all publishers to update the textbooks to have both names. US is urged to change its policy to recognize both names & pass East Sea/Sea of Japan amendment at IHO Meeting on April 24, 2017.


#ChineseLivesMatters Calling a federal investigation into the United Airlines incident on 10th April 2017 210,467 signatures Threshold: 100,000

Waiting for a response since May 11, 2017

On 11th April 2017, a passenger was forcefully removed from the plane because he refused to give up his seat. He was dragged off brutally and violently. Blood is visible on his face and body. The flight was departing O'Hare Interntaional Airport in Chicago for Louisville, Kentucky. The passenger explained that he is a doctor and he is on his way to see his patients thus he cannot reschedule his flight. This resulted in him being forcefully dragged off the plane and the force deployed caused him to bleed. The passenger was shouting that he was chosen to leave the flight only because he is Chinese, according to the news report by the New York Times. We are calling the federal government to launch an investigation into this incident. #ChineseLivesMatters
