Accountability

Courage Campaign fights to hold our political leaders and most powerful corporations accountable to the will of the people.

Big Banks must divest from immigrant detention

Right now Big Banks like Wells Fargo, JPMorgan Chase, and BlackRock are getting rich off Trump’s heartless ”zero tolerance” that rips breastfeeding infants from their mother’s arms and indefinitely detains immigrants seeking asylum from violence. Big Banks heavily invest in these inhumane private-prison companies and make loans that keep them in business.

Will you sign the petition telling #BackersofHate to divest from immigrant detention?

Call your Assemblymember and ask them to save net neutrality

 A key committee in the Assembly will vote on the bills this week. We can be sure that members of that committee are hearing from telecom lobbyists -- we need to make sure they hear loud and clear from everyday people about why net neutrality is so important to us.
 
Will you call your Assemblymember and ask them to protect net neutrality?

Disneyland workers need a living wage

Disneyland claims to be the "happiest place on Earth" but the Walt Disney Company fails to offer the same promise to its employees. 

Disneyland employees suffer through food insecurity, poverty, and even homelessness. These are hard workers who put all of this aside to provide visitors with great experiences. They deserve a living wage and not to have to depend on food banks and shelters. Join us in demanding that Walt Disney Company give its employees the compensation they deserve. 

Make calls to win back the House!

7 of the 23 seats we need to win back the House are in California. Learn more at CAcounts.org. These are Republican seats that voted for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump in 2016. We have a real chance of having Democrats on the ballot in all seven of those districts, but our hopes may be dashed if we don't turn out voters for the primary on June 5.

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”

Donald Trump wants to open nearly every inch of the U.S. coast to offshore drilling -- even in California, where drilling hasn't been allowed for 30 years.

But Trump won’t be able to get away with it without the support of Republican members of Congress in coastal states, many of whom are vulnerable in 2018Join us in telling Congress to oppose Trump's offshore drilling plan.
