Accountability

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

Tell the CPUC and Attorney General Harris: Stop the Comcast Monopoly!

Comcast -- one of the nation's largest telecomm companies -- wants to merge with Time Warner cable. If successful, Comcast will gain unprecedented power over our country’s cable and internet market -- resulting in higher prices, fewer choices, worse customer service and control over the information we read, watch, and hear. We must urge the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) and CA Attorney General Kamala Harris to block this disastrous merger! JOIN US!

Demand that Alabama’s anti-gay judges be held accountable!

Alabama just became the 37th marriage equality state. BUT in flagrant defiance of federal law, Chief Justice Moore ordered county judges to illegally deny marriage licenses to same-sex couples, and many complied. Join us to demand that ALL couples have the right to marry in Alabama!

Tell Gov. Brown: Ban fracking in California NOW!

The largest rally against fracking in California history is coming up on February 7th: The March for Real Climate Leadership. Whether or not you can join us in person, we need you to sign the petition demanding Governor Jerry Brown end the toxic and dangerous practice fracking in California now, so we can deliver your demands right to his doorstep in Oakland! Last month, New York's governor took an historic step by completely outlawing fracking – now it's California's turn. THIS is a game-changing moment for the climate movement in California. Join us!

Demand PG & E & CPUC be held accountable for unethical relationship!

Everything we suspected about the relationship between PG&E and their regulator is true. A string of emails just released reveal inappropriate, unethical and dangerous back-channel communications between PG&E and the CPUC in the continuing legal fallout over the 2010 San Bruno gas explosion that killed 8 people and destroyed 38 homes. We must stand together to hold CPUC and PG&E accountable for their incestuous relationship and demand justice for the victims of San Bruno!

Tell Gov. Brown: NO drones without a warrant!

Did you know that right now in California police are legally allowed to spy on you and your family using drone surveillance without a warrant?! The State Legislature just approved bipartisan legislation to protect Californians from having their privacy invaded by drones. And Governor Brown needs to hear from YOU now before he decides whether to sign or veto this critical legislation.

Ask Blue Shield: Where are my tickets to the 49ers skybox?

If Blue Shield is going to play games with our money, then we are going to play games with them! The so-called “non-profit” insurance company just bought a $2.5 million luxury skybox at the 49ers' new Levi’s stadium with YOUR health care premiums and tax dollars. They claim that the skybox is for “customer events,” but we aren’t buying it. If Blue Shield is going to party in box seats all season using our hard-earned money, we think it’s worth asking for an invite. Don’t you?

Gov. Brown: Dont veto the California Fair Sentencing Act

This is our LAST CHANCE to rollback California's catastrophic "War on Drugs." Thanks to thousands of Courage members who have been leading the fight for months, the bill to end the racist crack vs. powder cocaine sentencing discrepancy is now sitting on Governor Jerry Brown’s desk! But with the Nov. election around the corner, Gov. Brown might be tempted to veto it. Now more than ever we must join together and speak out as loud as we can to let our governor know where we stand.

Stop PG&E from raising utility rates for safety measures you ALREADY paid for!

Pacific Gas and Electric just received approval to raise California utility rates by $8 a month. Now they're asking for another $5 a month to pay for safety improvements that Californians already paid for! We must hold PG&E accountable for the hundreds of millions of dollars they have already received and demand that they not pass ANOTHER increase onto ratepayers.

Ask Attorney General Kamala Harris: Block health insurers from wasting taxpayer dollars

Blue Shield just bought a $2.5 million luxury skybox at the 49ers' brand spanking new Levi’s stadium with Californians' healthcare premiums and tax dollars! Healthcare insurers, like Blue Shield, are abusing their "non-profit” tax status by spending billions of taxpayer dollars -- in corporate tax breaks and rising premiums -- on lavish entertainment for corporate VIPs and hefty bonuses for company executives, not patient care. Attorney General Kamala Harris has the authority to hold insurers accountable.
