No More Super-Delegates: Party leaders should never trump the will of the voters

Under the current Democratic Party nominating rules, 712 "super-delegates" -- elected officials and well-connected members of the party -- are free to support any candidate for the presidential nomination at the party's national convention. They have the power to overrule the will of voters in a close contest. 

The super-delegate system is unrepresentative, contradicts the purported values of the party and its members, and reduces the party’s moral authority.

SIGN THE PLEDGE: Don't Serve in Judge Persky's Court

Judge Aaron Persky -- from the Brock Turner rape case -- is so toxic that California residents are literally refusing to serve as jurors for cases he presides over.

These jurors are sending a powerful message: The California public has lost complete faith in Judge Persky. You can join them.

Tell Apple CEO Tim Cook: Don't fund hate!

Just two days after Apple announced that it would not support a Republican National Convention led by Donald Trump and his hate-filled campaign, news broke that Apple's CEO Tim Cook was planning to host a private fundraiser for GOP House Speaker Paul Ryan and other House Republicans in Menlo Park, CA.

It is saddening to see that just days after taking the courageous stand to not align with Trump's brand of racism, vitriol and misogyny, Apple CEO Tim Cook is planning to help raise money for the same Republicans that are backing Donald Trump.

Stop Arming Fear

The Orlando shooting was an act of mass violence against the LGBTQ community, largely Latino, by a man fueled with hate. A man who should never have been able to walk into a store and purchase an assault rifle. No civilian should have the right to buy a weapon specifically designed to kill as many people as possible, as quickly as possible.

Whether it’s Donald Trump inciting fear of Latinos and Muslims to get votes, gun makers inciting fear of violence to sell guns, or bigots inciting fear of LGBTQ people to preserve power, fear and the hate it engenders are a threat to our fundamental values as a nation.

JOIN US to send an overwhelming message to our national leaders saying: #StopArmingFear.

Remove judge in Stanford rape case from the bench!

A judge just sentenced a Stanford University star athlete -- who was caught in the act of sexually assaulting an unconscious woman -- to only six months in jail.

Why? Because the judge, Aaron Persky, worried that a prison sentence would have a "severe impact on him" -- yes, the rapist -- and said, "I think he will not be a danger to others." It's a horrifying example of rape culture: when a judge is more concerned with the well-being of a rapist than with justice or public safety. This judge has no business staying on the bench.

SIGN THE PETITION: Repeal the Maximum Family Grant

The Maximum Family Grant (MFG) rule was created to coerce poor mothers into having less children. This unjust, invasive policy has forced nearly 140,000 of California’s children deeper into poverty simply because they were born poor. And it continues to threaten the reproductive freedom and privacy of thousands of women.

Stand with Elizabeth Warren and fight predatory payday lenders

The payday loan industry is one of the BIGGEST scammers out there. Their entire business model is designed to trap financially vulnerable Americans in a vicious cycle of debt. The average payday loan borrower takes out eight loans a year and pays nearly 400% in interest and fees.
