Make Congress "Oil-Free"

Since 1990, Big Oil has given more than $190 million to members of Congress and 75% ($142,635,314!) of those donations have gone to Republicans. Those donations guarantee an energy policy that serves the oil industry's interests over the public interest. Until we stop politicians from taking oil money, it'll be hard to move into a clean-energy future.

I want my representative and senators to lead the way to energy independence by pledging to stop taking any campaign contributions from the oil & gas industry.

SUBJECT: Congress must go "Oil-Free"

Dear Representative,

(Your personal note)

I'm writing to ask you to publicly pledge not to take any further campaign contributions from the oil industry. As you know, Americans have become increasingly concerned about the high price of our nation's addiction to oil and want a clean energy future. While there is a lot of talk in Washington about our addiction to oil, there is very little action.

Before we can expect to free the nation from its dependence on oil, we need politicians who will free themselves from their dependence on the oil industry. That's why we are asking you to stop taking contributions from Big Oil.

  This campaign is based solely on word of mouth. It is CRUCIAL that you tell others. To transmit a brief letter to your e-mail circle, just press:
Donate: Can you make a financial contribution to support this campaign?
Volunteer: We need your help. If you have some time to give, press here.

Privacy Policy

We do not share the information you’ve given us with unaffiliated groups without your explicit permission.

Petitions and Surveys

For petitions and surveys you've signed or completed, we treat your name, city, state, and comments as public information - for example, we may provide compilations of petitions, with your comments, to the President and legislators, other targets, or to the press. We will not make your street address publicly available, but we may transmit it to members of Congress and to the President as part of a petition. This is a standard industry practice in such situations. In no such case will we disclose your email address or phone number without your permission. We may also make your comments, along with your first name, city, and state available to the press and public online.

Under circumstances where we determine that members may be misusing our systems for malicious purposes (for example, using the numbers we provide to make harassing phone calls), such activities may be reported to law enforcement agencies. In such cases, MoveOn may release personally identifiable information, including name and address, to those agencies.

Sending Emails Via Political Action

In certain cases, we enable you to send individual e-mails to the President, legislators, and other targets as well as Letters-to-the-Editor to various news publications, through our website. These messages are sent in your name, with your e-mail address as the return address and your full name and contact information is provided as part of the submission. These messages will only be sent out under your name as you approve them on an individual basis using our email tool. You are solely responsible for the specific message(s) you send using our email tool.
