Courage Campaign fights to hold our political leaders and most powerful corporations accountable to the will of the people.
Speaker Boehner's shutdown is kicking ABUSED WOMEN onto the street. Domestic violence shelters and rape crisis programs across the country have begun losing the federal funding they need to keep their doors open, forcing out vulnerable women and children. SIGN THE PETITION HERE.
The GOP-controlled House of Representatives decided to shut down the government rather than pass a spending bill that funds the Affordable Care Act, even though the Supreme Court already upheld the legislation. And while hundreds of thousands of hard-working federal employees will stop receiving the paychecks they need to feed their families and pay their mortgages, Congress will continue to get paid for refusing to do the job they were elected to do. Sign our petition to demand that Congress lose their paychecks until they come to a resolution.
Conservative Extremist, David Koch sits on the Board of the most influential PBS station in the country, WGBH in Boston. He's already used his influence to corrupt another major PBS station in New York, and he must be stopped. Sign our petition to keep PBS free of radical right-wing censorship.
Key bills from the LIFE (Lifesaving Intelligent Firearms Enforcement) Act sit on Gov. Brown's desk -- including a loophole-free assault weapons ban and background checks for ammunition purchases. With the stroke of a pen, he could give California the smartest, safest gun laws in the nation, but he has a poor track record when it comes to gun safety. We must convince Gov. Brown to sign these laws to protect Californians from more senseless gun violence.
SB 649 is a historic & bi-partisan drug sentencing reform bill that will save taxpayer dollars and reduce overcrowding in our prisons by allowing prosecutors to charge non-violent drug possession as a misdemeanor, rather than as a felony. Send an email to Gov. Brown urging him to sign SB 649 to help end the so-called “War on Drugs.”

Republicans continue to use archaic filibuster rules to prevent critical presidential nominations at historically unprecedented levels. They are determined to kill Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s inspiration -- the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau -- by filibustering the nomination of Richard Cordray to lead the agency. California Senators need to stand up to the GOP and support Harry Reid’s filibuster reform efforts.
Jack Hagan and Frank Lindh of the California Public Utilities Commission are putting Big Business first, not safety or justice. They have protected PG&E from fines and intimidated attorneys charged with holding PG&E accountable for the San Bruno disaster. Take a stand and demand their resignation immediately.
