Tell your state legislator to support to California Act to Save Lives

43 Californians have been killed so far this year because police officers are legally allowed to use deadly force whenever they deem it "reasonable." 

AB 392, the California Act to Save Lives, would amend the use of force standard so that police officers can only shoot when absolutely necessary and when there are no other alternatives to addressing the situation. With the passage of AB 392, police officers would be held accountable for their actions -- which is why the police lobby is trying so hard to defeat this bill.

Sign the petition to call on your state legislators to stand up to the police lobby and demand police accountability!

Pledge to defend LA's kids from corporate lobbyists and vote for Measure EE

Measure EE is a progressive parcel tax that primarily asks corporations to fund lower class sizes, and attract and retain quality teachers, counselors, school nurses, librarians, support staff, and principals in LA schools.

Some corporate lobbyists and mega-landlords are opposed to Measure EE because they're more concerned with profits than LA's children. That's why we need your help to get Measure EE passed on June 4.

Sign the pledge to prioritize our children and our classrooms!

Call your legislator to protect Californians' health

Undocumented Californians are considered ineligible for insurance just because of their immigration status, which makes them the largest group of uninsured people in the state. AB 4 can ensure all Californians get the care they need -- but we need your help to make sure it passes. Can you call and let know your legislator know that constituents support AB 4?

Stop corporate lobbyists from underfunding our schools

Earlier this year, the teachers of the Los Angeles Unified School District went on strike to get a better deal for their students. The district, its workers, and other stakeholders came together and acknowledged that the decades-long funding crisis in our public schools must be addressed.

That’s why on the June 4 ballot, Measure EE will ask corporations to pay a little more in taxes to lower class sizes and attract and retain quality teachers, counselors, school nurses, librarians, support staff and principals.

Tell your representative to stop the wall!

Trump has declared a State of Emergency to spend up to $8 billion on his border wall, his most blatant attack yet on our Constitution and on people of color.

Sign the petition and ask your U.S. House representative to block this emergency declaration.

#StopKavanaugh by calling voters in key states

We'll be using a calling tool that allows you to call voters in key states whose Senators have not yet publicly opposed Kavanaugh.

Big Banks must divest from immigrant detention

Right now Big Banks like Wells Fargo, JPMorgan Chase, and BlackRock are getting rich off Trump’s heartless ”zero tolerance” that rips breastfeeding infants from their mother’s arms and indefinitely detains immigrants seeking asylum from violence. Big Banks heavily invest in these inhumane private-prison companies and make loans that keep them in business.

Will you sign the petition telling #BackersofHate to divest from immigrant detention?

Tell Congress: End family separations!

Trump's immigration agents have snatched over 11,000 children from their parents this year -- even those asking for political asylum after escaping horrible human rights abuses.

These are children, not bargaining chips. Trump can end family separations with one phone call -- but instead he's holding thousands of kids hostage to his extremist immigration agenda. Will you sign our emergency petition telling your member of Congress to vote NO on the two anti-immigrant GOP bills?

Deliver California Values Act petitions to your city council or mayor

Call on California mayors and local government officials to support our immigrant communities

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is suing California for shielding immigrant communities from the Trump administration’s terroristic immigration policies. And now a number of California cities are voting to attack our immigrant friends and neighbors by undermining the California Values Act.

That’s why we’re calling on California mayors and local government officials to explicitly support the California Values Act. Now more than ever is it imperative that our representatives stand up for immigrant communities under attack and set an example for the country. Sign the petition and ask your mayor and local government officials to support the California Values Act now.
