March in D.C. with the Courageous Resistance

We will not sit by quietly while Donald Trump dismantles our rights. The Courageous Resistance is hitting the streets of Washington D.C. on January 21 with thousands of feminists and declaring our resistance to the pussy-grabber-in-chief! 

With a platform based on inclusivity and intersectionality, the march is already poised to draw more buses of people than Trump's inauguration likely will itself -- 1,000 more buses. We need to make sure our collective voices are heard loud and clear, and the only way to do that is to make sure thousands of people show up. 

Host an Inauguration Day Action

Your energy is needed to make sure on January 20 the Courageous Resistance's agenda is heard loud and clear. To be successful, it’ll take dozens of rallies from Redding to San Diego outside of the offices of our elected officials. Will you host an Inauguration Day action to hold your representatives accountable?

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.

LA + Parks = Awesome (YES on Measure A!)

Fifty-one percent of LA County residents don’t live within a ten minute walk of a park. By comparison, in New York, that number is less than 5%. Luckily Measure A would help bridge that gap. 

Measure A would provide funding through an annual parcel tax of 1.5 cents per square foot to raise up to $94 million annually to update and build local parks, improve recreation and senior centers, plant drought tolerant landscaping, and more. 

Tell Governor Brown: Give farm workers fair overtime pay!

Farm workers are vital to our well-being as a nation. But for nearly 100 years, they've been treated like second-class citizens and denied real overtime. 

AB 1066 is a commonsense solution that will give farm workers eligibility for overtime pay. That is why we must urge Governor Brown to swiftly sign this bill into law as a champion in the struggle for fairness and equity for farm workers. 

Gov. Brown: Commit to Sign the Stronger California Women's Agenda Bills

August 26 is Women’s Equality Day, which marks the anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote. It is a day to recognize and lift up women’s political and economic power and an opportunity for Governor Brown to demonstrate his continuing commitment to women and families throughout the state.

Keep Wall Street Honest: End Forced Arbitration

Think consumers should be able to sue corporations that have wronged them? Today’s the day to speak up.

Buried in many contracts you’ve signed -- for loans, credit cards, and even Pokemon Go -- you’ll find a “ripoff clause” in the very, very, very fine print. These clauses stipulate that consumers cannot band together in a class action suit to protest unfair fees, seek damages due to dangerous products, or otherwise protest wrongdoing. As pointed out in the New York Times, “Without the ability to pool resources, most people abandon their claims and never make it to arbitration.”
