Tell U.S. Forest Service: Only the most rigorous environmental review will do!

The U.S. Forest Service (USFS) is proposing to renew Nestlé's expired permit for another FIVE years! To renew the permit, the USFS must follow the National Environmental Policy Act. NEPA requires the USFS to conduct an environmental review of the impacts on our public lands before issuing the permit.

If the USFS conducts a robust environmental review, the science will show that they cannot renew Nestlé's permit, forcing Nestlé to abandon their operations altogether.

Tell you CA Legislators: Help end Civil Asset Forfeiture Abuse!

Civil Asset Forfeiture gives police a free pass to impose on people’s civil rights and disproportionately steal from low-income people of color without even charging someone with a crime. In California alone, police pocketed nearly $600 MILLION from Civil Asset Forfeiture between 2006 and 2013.

It’s legalized robbery. And it’s past time for California to put an end to it.

Check out the People's Report Card of CA

The growing influence of corporate money in Sacramento -- from independent expenditures and political action committees --  is making it harder for California to lead as a model for the nation. 

That's why the People's Report Card of California is bringing the information directly to the people by sharing which CA state legislators are out of step with their constituents and are instead deeply aligned with corporate and special interests.

Tell Sprouts: Stop selling Nestlé’s bottled water

Sprouts Farmers Market (Sprouts) is one of the largest national grocery stores -- operating over 200 stores, many of them in California -- that cares about sustainability. So awesome! Oh wait, too bad it’s not fully true!
 
The sad reality is that Sprouts sells bottles of Nestlé’s Arrowhead Springs water -- the same water Nestlé pumps illegally from California's drought-stricken San Bernardino National Forest using a permit that expired over 25 years ago. How can Sprouts call this practice green?!

SIGN THE PETITION: Stop anti-choice extremist attacks on CA women

Anti-choice extremists are waging an all-out war against women in California. For years, they’ve set up fake abortion clinics across California, deceptively called Crisis Pregnancy Centers (CPCs), which pose as medical facilities and use coercion and shame to limit women’s access to accurate information about abortion and reproductive healthcareGovernor Jerry Brown signed a law last year to help stop CPCs deceptive practices, but now anti-choice bullies are launching legal attacks to scare local authorities from enforcing the law.

Tell CA Legislature: Support emergency legislation to prevent next LA gas leak

The massive gas leak in LA's Porter Ranch neighborhood was the worst environmental disaster since the BP oil spill. It further exposed our state’s failed oversight and slow emergency response, the weak laws governing regulation of gas storage facilities that led to this disaster, and our over dependence on fossil fuels and methods of extreme oil extraction. 

Tell the EPA and President Obama: Shut down the Porter Ranch gas leak NOW!

The massive gas leak in Los Angeles is a ticking time bomb that is spiraling out of control and continues to poison local residents with cancer-causing chemicals, while releasing enormous amounts of carbon into the atmosphere. It’s time for our national authorities to step in before it’s too late.

Tell the South Coast Air Quality Management District to shut down the Porter Ranch gas leak NOW!

The South Coast Air Quality Management District -- a local agency that regulates air pollution -- has the authority to shut down the Aliso Canyon Storage Facility responsible for the leak. And we need to raise our voices loud and clear to make sure they SHUT IT DOWN NOW!

Tell Gov. Jerry Brown to declare Porter Ranch gas leak as state of emergency

Los Angeles County has already declared a state of emergency as SoCalGas scrambles to stop the ongoing gas leak at its Aliso Canyon Storage Facility near Porter Ranch. The City Attorney of Los Angeles even filed a lawsuit against SoCalGas for creating “unlivable” conditions. This gas leak is spiraling out of control! 

This is our chance to restore and protect the San Francisco Bay!

The Clean and Healthy Bay ballot initiative may be the greatest opportunity in a generation for Bay Area residents to create a healthy and sustainable future for our children and grandchildren.
