Human Rights

Courage Campaign works to defend and extend human rights for all people.

Guarantee health care for all! Pass the Healthy California Act.

Every Californian deserves high-quality, guaranteed health care. But even under the Affordable Care Act, over three million Californians are left out and still lack health insurance. They’re our parents, children, grandparents, neighbors, co-workers, and community members.

The Healthy California Act would establish a transparent health care system and a universal standard of safe, quality care -- essentially an improved Medicare for every Californian.

Sign the petition if you agree that health care is a human right and that it’s time every Californian is guaranteed health care.

Tell California Legislators: Pass the California Money Bail Reform Act

California’s bail system is completely and utterly broken. Our state wastes more than $1.8 billion each year jailing people who are waiting for trial -- and ruins the lives of countless people who’ve been accused of a crime but can’t afford exorbitant bail amounts.

New legislation called the California Money Bail Reform Act of 2017 would reform our bail system. Instead of requiring money bail payments in all cases, regardless of a person’s risk, SB 10 and AB 42 would require courts to judge each case individually before setting the terms of release. This reform is a complete no-brainer. And it has a track record of success. 

Call your state senator NOW: Protect immigrant communities!

Donald Trump's rampant immigration raids are terrorizing our immigrant friends, neighbors, and community members across the state. We can stand up to this onslaught by passing the California Values Act (SB 54), an urgent bill that would stop state resources from being used to aid Trump’s anti-immigrant agenda.

California legislators: say NO to Trump’s Muslim registry in CA

The Trump Administration’s policies are tearing California’s families apart. From immigration raids to travel bans to the border wall to hate crimes, the fear is unmistakable -- and it’s just the beginning.

The Religious Freedom Act (SB 31) -- which is currently moving through the California Senate -- will protect Californians from yet another registry based on religion, nationality, or ethnicity. This bill must be passed to protect our neighbors from this blatant discrimination. Sign the petition to ask your lawmakers to support the Religious Freedom Act (SB 31).

Call your Representative NOW: Hands off our health care!

If Trumpcare passes, 24 million people would lose access to affordable health care. Older Americans would pay much more for health insurance -- 5 times as much as younger people -- but get way less help paying for insurance because of a $600 billion tax break for the ultra-rich and a $400 million giveaway to insurance executives. It's completely unacceptable.

Trumpcare must be stopped! Call your representative TODAY!

Send a letter to Congress demanding they oppose the American Health Care Act

Trumpcare, or the American Health Care Act (AHCA) was just released to the public -- and, unsurprisingly, it does exactly the opposite of everything Trump promised it would. 

The good news is that we aren’t the only ones who want to keep Trumpcare from passing -- from AARP to the American Hospital Association to Breitbart, Trumpcare faces powerful opposition in Washington. And that means we can beat it if we make sure that every elected official in both houses of Congress hear from their constituents now. Will you send a letter to your representatives telling them to reject the American Health Care Act today? 

Tell California Legislators: Support the California Values Act to Protect Immigrant Communities

Donald Trump’s Presidency poses a direct threat to immigrants, Muslims, people of color, LGBTQ+ people, women and many others. And he's not wasting any time to take executive action that attacks undocumented people, refugees, the muslim community, and more. California legislators must do all they can to aggressively disrupt Trump’s plans and stand with our must vulnerable communities.

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?
