Here's a list of websites filled with petitions, news and other such things. Sign up on their mailing lists for frequent updates to take armchair action!

  • Idle No More
  • "Idle No More calls on all people to join in a peaceful revolution, to honour Indigenous sovereignty, and to protect the land and water"

    INM has and will continue to help build sovereignty & resurgence of nationhood.

    INM will continue to pressure government and industry to protect the environment.

    INM will continue to build allies in order to reframe the nation to nation relationship, this will be done by including grassroots perspectives, issues, and concern.

  • Friends of the Earth International
  • We campaign on today's most urgent environmental and social issues. We challenge the current model of economic and corporate globalization, and promote solutions that will help to create environmentally sustainable and socially just societies

  • Center for Biological Diversity
  • We believe that the welfare of human beings is deeply linked to nature — to the existence in our world of a vast diversity of wild animals and plants. Because diversity has intrinsic value, and because its loss impoverishes society, we work to secure a future for all species, great and small, hovering on the brink of extinction. We do so through science, law and creative media, with a focus on protecting the lands, waters and climate that species need to survive.

    We want those who come after us to inherit a world where the wild is still alive.

  • National Resources Defense Council
  • NRDC is the nation's most effective environmental action group, combining the grassroots power of 1.4 million members and online activists with the courtroom clout and expertise of more than 350 lawyers, scientists and other professionals.

    Our priorities include:
    • Curbing Global Warming and Creating the Clean Energy Future
    • Reviving the World's Oceans
    • Defending Endangered Wildlife and Wild Places
    • Protecting Our Health by Preventing Pollution
    • Ensuring Safe and Sufficient Water
    • Fostering Sustainable Communities

  • NRDC Save BioGems
  • NRDC selects special places across the Americas that face an imminent threat of destruction: pristine coastlines that could become industrial ports; ancient forests that could be stripped of trees; and unspoiled wildlife habitats that could be sacrificed to oil and gas drilling. Our imperiled BioGems are irreplaceable remnants of wilderness that curb global warming, preserve biodiversity and provide sanctuary for rare and extraordinary wildlife, from threatened polar bears to endangered gray whales.

  • The Pew Charitable Trusts
  • Our work lays the foundation for effective policy solutions by informing and engaging citizens, linking diverse interests to pursue common cause and insisting on tangible results. Our projects encourage efficient, responsive governments – at the local, state, national and international levels – serving the best interests of the people. Current projects seek to strengthen environmental and energy policies; protect our oceans and wild lands; improve health through investments in child nutrition; increase the safety of foods and drugs; provide consumers with better information about financial products; and help states and cities invest in programs that provide the strongest returns. We are particularly committed to improving the civic life of Philadelphia, our founders’ home town.

  • Environment New York
  • Funded by supporters like you, we research the challenges confronting New York’s environment and educate the public about what’s at stake. Through our research reports, news conferences, interviews with reporters, op-ed pieces, letters to the editor, and more, we raise awareness of environmental issues and promote sensible solutions. Our canvassers meet people where they are — in public places or door to door — raising awareness, recruiting new supporters and activists, and raising funds to support our work.

    When decisions are being made about New York’s environment, our elected officials hear plenty from the gas companies, developers and other powerful interests. We make the case for our environment and help people like you make your voice heard, through petitions, emails, letters, phone calls and more, all delivered to the right people just when it matters most.

  • Conservation International
  • Through science, policy and field work, we're applying smart solutions to protect the resources that we all depend on. We help communities, countries and societies protect tropical forests, lush grasslands, rivers, wetlands, abundant lakes and the sea. Only through properly valuing the essential services these ecosystems provide can we create a sustainable development path that will benefit all people for generations to come.

  • World Society for the Protection of Animals
  • Exists to tackle animal cruelty across the globe. We work directly with animals and with the people and organisations that can ensure animals are treated with respect and compassion.

    We bring about lasting change by:
    • helping people understand the critical importance of good animal welfare
    • encouraging nations to commit to animal-friendly practices
    • building the scientific case for the better treatment of animals.

  • People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals
  • PETA focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: on factory farms, in the clothing trade, in laboratories, and in the entertainment industry. We also work on a variety of other issues, including the cruel killing of beavers, birds, and other "pests" as well as cruelty to domesticated animals.

    PETA works through public education, cruelty investigations, research, animal rescue, legislation, special events, celebrity involvement, and protest campaigns.

  • American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals
  • As the first humane organization to be granted legal authority to investigate and make arrests for crimes against animals, we are wholly dedicated to fulfilling the ASPCA mission through nonviolent approaches. Our organization provides local and national leadership in three key areas: caring for pet parents and pets, providing positive outcomes for at-risk animals and serving victims of animal cruelty.

  • Anti-Slavery Society
  • The aims of the Society are:
    • to relieve suffering of;
    • to free or rescue; and
    • the social reintegration of —

    slaves, child slaves, bonded laborers, bonded child laborers, hierodulic (ie, temple or sacred) child prostitutes, child laborers and the victims of the international traffic in women and children for the purpose of prostitution, as well as the suppression of these practices and institutions.

  • Care2
  • The idea is simple: Make it easy for everyone to live a healthy, green lifestyle and impact the causes they care about most.

  • 38 Degrees
  • In nature, avalanches begin when they reach the tipping point angle of 38 Degrees. In the UK, 38 Degrees members work together to bring about real change in the UK by taking action on the issues that we all care about, to create an avalanche for change.

    38 Degrees believes that power should rest with the people: we provide simple and effective tools for hundreds of thousands of us to influence the decisions that affect us all. We work together to defend fairness, protect constitutional rights, promote peace, preserve the planet and deepen democracy.

  • Avaaz
  • Avaaz—meaning "voice" in several European, Middle Eastern and Asian languages—launched in 2007 with a simple democratic mission: organize citizens of all nations to close the gap between the world we have and the world most people everywhere want.

    Avaaz empowers millions of people from all walks of life to take action on pressing global, regional and national issues, from corruption and poverty to conflict and climate change. Our model of internet organising allows thousands of individual efforts, however small, to be rapidly combined into a powerful collective force.

  • There are more than 40 million users in 196 countries, and every day people use our tools to transform their communities – locally, nationally and globally. Whether it's a mother fighting bullying in her daughter's school, customers pressing banks to drop unfair fees, or citizens holding corrupt officials to account, thousands of campaigns started by people like you have won on – and more are winning every week.

  • Global Justice Ecology Project
  • Explores and exposes the intertwined root causes of social injustice, ecological destruction, and economic domination.
    GJEP envisions a world in which all societies are justly and equitably governed with full participation by an engaged and informed populace living in harmony with the natural world and one another.
    We accomplish our mission by (1) prioritizing campaigns that are key leverage points for advancing systemic change, and (2) linking struggles and strengthening diverse movements with strategic action, information, and analysis.

Summaries of each are copied from their websites at the time of posting and are their words that belong to them, not I.
