Tell the U.S. Senate: Don't slam the door on refugees

FOUR MILLION children, women, and families have fled from war-torn Syria to ESCAPE violent extremism, NOT to spread itBut right-wing Republicans and some Democrats are being overpowered by fear and bigotry -- not logic, tolerance, and goodwill.

SIGN THE PETITION: Support racial justice in CA

California has one of the poorest racial and identity profiling laws in the country. And right now, a landmark bill is working its way through Sacramento that could fundamentally fix the broken law and reduce the epidemic of profiling and police brutality that has been threatening the lives and liberty of far too many people of color and minorities in California. AB 953 (by Assemblymember Shirley Weber) will help eliminate the harmful and unjust practice of racial and identity profiling in CA, and improve law enforcement transparency and accountability.
