Accountability

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

Join the Courageous Resistance

A Trump presidency is a direct threat to our safety and well-being. The next four years will require extreme courage from those of us who believe in justice and equality. And we’ll need you - your energy, time, and talent. Will you commit to joining the fight?

SIGN THE PLEDGE: Curb LA traffic by voting YES on Measure M

Los Angeles is home to some of the most congested freeways in the nation! On average, LA drivers lose 81 hours annually simply because of traffic.

But on November 8 you could change that by voting YES on Measure M. 

Measure M, a half-cent sales tax, would expand LA County’s rail lines and improve buses to ease traffic congestion and bring LA’s public transportation system -- the third largest in the nation -- into the 21st century. 

Ban fracking in Monterey County - YES on Measure Z

Oil companies will spend millions to oppose our citizens' initiative to ban fracking this November. Why? Because they want unrestricted use of land and water to drill new oil wells and stimulate older wells using extreme techniques like fracking and acidizing.

These techniques can use millions of gallons of water for a single operation. The water is mixed with toxic chemicals that can harm our health, are contaminating our groundwater and aquifers, and accelerate climate change.

Demand police accountability in Oakland -- YES on Measure LL!

Oakland Police Department has a reputation for lawlessness going back more than a decade, when a judge placed the department under federal oversight for a pattern of civil rights violations and brutality. Despite this oversight, four OPD officers were recently criminally charged for sex trafficking a minor in a scandal that led to the dismissal of three different police chiefs in just 9 days.

That’s why Oakland needs Measure LL to pass in November. It would establish an independent Police Commission with the power to investigate and discipline bad police officers, recommend certain policy changes, and even fire the police chief if necessary. 

SIGN THE PLEDGE: Support Fair Elections in Berkeley

More than half of campaign funds for Berkeley elections come from less than 1 percent of households. And seven of the last eight Berkeley City Council races were won by the individuals who raised the most money. This is a real problem. But this November 8, Berkeley residents have a historic opportunity to fight big money and special interest groups by voting yes on Measure X1. 

Measure X1 would help make elections fair by restoring the power of small donors who live in Berkeley. 

Stop Big Soda's lies in Oakland -- YES on Measure HH!

For decades, the sugar industry lied about sugar’s impact on people’s health, even funding research to blame fat for heart disease, diabetes, and other ailments

Now they’re lying to Oakland residents. Big Soda is spending millions to deceive voters in an attempt to defeat Measure HH, a one cent per ounce tax on sugar-sweetened beverages -- a policy that studies show reduces soda consumption -- by falsely claiming that it’s a tax on all groceries.

Stop Big Soda's lies in Albany -- YES on Measure O1!

For decades, the sugar industry lied about sugar’s impact on people’s health, even funding research to blame fat for heart disease, diabetes, and other ailments

Now they’re lying to Albany residents. Big Soda is spending millions to deceive voters in an attempt to defeat Measure O1, a one cent per ounce tax on soda sugary beverages -- a policy that studies show reduces soda consumption -- by falsely claiming that it’s a tax on all groceries.

Stop Big Soda's lies in San Francisco -- YES on Proposition V!

For decades, the sugar industry lied about sugar’s impact on people’s health, even funding research to blame fat for heart disease, diabetes, and other ailments

Now they’re lying to San Fransisco residents. Big Soda is spending millions to deceive voters in an attempt to defeat Proposition V, a one cent per ounce tax on soda sugary beverages -- a policy that studies show reduces soda consumption -- by falsely claiming that it’s a tax on all groceries.

BART riders! Vote YES on Measure RR

Originally designed to carry 100,000 riders a week, BART now carries over 400,000 riders a day. The tremendous surge in ridership has placed a significant strain on the four decade old train system. And with the region expecting the population to grow by 2.4 million people by 2040, the Bay Area simply cannot wait any longer to update its aging BART transportation infrastructure to meet the surging demand.

Measure RR is a critical $3.5 billion bond measure that would modernize BART to keep it safe and reliable and bring it forward to the 21st century. 

Ensure affordable housing in Alameda -- YES on Measure M1 and NO on Measure L1

Rent in Alameda is increasing, on average, at 10 times the rate of inflation. Household income, however, has not kept pace. As a result, more and more Alameda residents are unable to afford housing thanks to skyrocketing rents and the rising crisis of “no-cause” evictions. This is unacceptable.
