Write a Letter to the Editor to help save net neutrality in California

In a few short weeks, the California State Senate will vote on SB 822 by Senator Scott Wiener -- the strongest net neutrality protections proposed across the country. But now AT&T and Comcast's army of lobbyists are doing everything in their power to stop it.

One powerful way you can help build support and spark public conversation is by sending a letter to the editor in your local and regional newspapers. Will you take a few moments to send a letter to local and regional newspapers to protect net neutrality in California? 

Don't let police officers get away with breaking the law!

Senate Bill 1421, by Nancy Skinner, limits a 1970s-era law that keeps police disciplinary records from the public. When a police officer shoots or sexually assaults a member of the public, the community deserves to know what happenedMore importantly, we deserve to know how the department responded so we can determine whether the systems meant to hold officers accountable for their actions are working.

Sign our emergency petition calling on lawmakers to support public accountability for police officers by passing SB 1421.

Support California's Police Accountability and Community Safety Act

Momentum is building behind a new California bill that would allow police officers to use deadly force only when "necessary to prevent imminent and serious bodily injury or death." This groundbreaking law -- the first of its kind in the entire country -- would prevent police officers from killing people without justification, and it would clear the way for them to be held accountable if they cross the line. Local departments would revise their use of force policies and put greater emphasis on de-escalation in their training.

Sign the petition and ask your assembly member to support the Police Accountability and Community Safety Act now.

Stop the Trump-Russia cover-up!

Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee have closed its investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, claiming they’ve found no evidence of collusion. 

Thankfully, Democrats on the Intelligence Committee are releasing their own report showing the many questions left unanswered and unexplored by the Republican leadership. We need to back the Democratic report, and delegitimize the Republicans’ decision to end the inquiry. Will you sign our emergency petition to Congress demanding a complete investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election?

Stop Trump’s offshore drilling “plan”

Tell the California Legislature to save net neutrality now!

Last month, Donald Trump’s FCC repealed federal net neutrality laws. But if you thought the fight for net neutrality was over, think again! The California legislature is preparing to consider new legislation that would protect net neutrality in the nation’s most populous state.

The telecom industry will fight California’s net neutrality legislation with everything it’s got. That’s why we need you, and thousands others like you, to speak up now to defend the open Internet. Please sign the petition calling on the California Legislature to protect net neutrality.

Stop Trump from starting nuclear war with North Korea

Only Republicans in Congress can rein Trump in and stop him from blundering the US into a nuclear war. But not a single sitting Republican lawmaker has denounced Trump’s dangerous tweet. 

To us, it’s simple: if GOP lawmakers won’t stand up to the President when he threatens the basic safety and security of our nation, they don’t deserve their jobs.

That’s why we’re launching an emergency petition demanding that every Republican member of Congress denounce Trump’s nuclear aggression and limit his ability to start a nuclear war. Will you sign it now?

Attorney General Becerra: Join the Exxon Investigation

ExxonMobil has known for decades that fossil fuels cause climate change, but it continues to publicly deny global warming -- harming our environment and people in the process.

The attorneys general of Massachusetts and New York have launched an investigation into Exxon to hold the company accountable for misleading its shareholders and the public about the effects of fossil fuels on our climate. We’re joining with both individuals and organizations across the state to call on California Attorney General Xavier Becerra to join this investigation. 

Sign our letter asking California Attorney General Becerra to join the Exxon investigation. 

Gov. Brown must pass the the Presidential Tax Transparency and Accountability Act

The American people deserve to know whether their presidents are motivated by the will of the people or by the president's own bank accounts. Will you place a call to Governor Brown and ask him to sign SB 149 into law and help ensure a transparent and accountable presidency?
