Fight Chicago Tribune news cuts

The Chicago Tribune is slashing about 100 people from its staff and watering down coverage of local, state and national news. Sign our petition to tell the corporate owners of the Chicago Tribune:

"Reverse newspaper staff cuts at the Chicago Tribune. As corporate owners reap large profits from the Tribune, there is no excuse for them to force our paper to abandon its responsibility to deliver strong watchdog journalism to the public."
Over 10,4500 local residents signed this Chicago Tribune petition. Across the nation, more than 59,000 people have signed similar local petitions. Check out our surprise petition delivery to the CEO of the Tribune Company by clicking 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 Civic 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.
