Have an idea for a petition?

Dear MoveOn member,

A few months ago, a bill was passed by the Utah state legislature to ban sex education in public schools. It was a terrible bill, and the only chance of stopping it was to get the state's Republican governor to veto it.
It seemed like a real long-shot, but a school bus driver named Paul Krueger was outraged and started a petition on MoveOn's website, Paul's petition spread quickly through Facebook and email and even got the attention of the state's big newspapers and TV stations.
Then, something really amazing happened. After more than 40,000 people signed Paul's petition, the governor announced that he would veto the bill! The tea party was outraged, but because of the public groundswell, the bill was dead.
Now it's your turn. Using, you can start your own online petition and invite your friends to sign it. We'll send the most popular petitions to other MoveOn members to help build support for your cause. 
Thanks for all you do.
