Take Action

The Obamacare Reality Response Team

'Generation Opportunity,' a Koch Brothers funded front group, is using highly polished, deceptive, anti-Obamacare ad campaigns to target college students on campus and young working Americans to get them to opt out of the Affordable Care Act. Join our Obamacare Reality Response Team and help stop the Koch Brothers from using their misleading and lying ads to destroy Obamacare!

San Diego & ALEC Don't Mix

San Diego does NOT need a right-wing conservative legislation factory like ALEC writing laws for our city. This is what ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council) has done in states like Wisconsin with "Right-to-Work" and Florida with "Stand Your Ground," each proposed by ALEC and lobbied for in state legislatures across the country. Who supports ALEC? Big name conservatives like Karl Rove, the Koch Brothers, and here in San Diego -- Nathan Fletcher.

Help us speak truth to power

Governor Brown vetoed a historic, bi-partisan bill that would have begun to rollback California's catastrophic "War on Drugs." In doing so, he confirmed our worst fears that he cares more about appearing "tough on crime" than advancing good solutions for California, as he prepares to run for re-election. The only way we can stand strong and speak truth to power in times like these is if we're financially independent. We can't be beholden to anyone but YOU, our members. Do you have our back?

Hold Gov. Brown Accountable for Vetoing LIFE Act

Governor Brown VETOED the LIFE (Lifesaving Intelligent Firearms Enforcement) Act, including a bill that would have created the nation's first loophole-free assault weapons ban. He chose to put craven political considerations above the safety and well-being of California’s more than 38 million residents. Please donate so we can make sure Gov. Brown hears your voice, as we share the stories of Californians lost to gun violence and educate him about the value of gun safety.

Tell Speaker Boehner: Don’t kick abused women onto the street. End the GOP Shutdown.

Speaker Boehner's shutdown is kicking ABUSED WOMEN onto the street. Domestic violence shelters and rape crisis programs across the country have begun losing the federal funding they need to keep their doors open, forcing out vulnerable women and children. SIGN THE PETITION HERE.

Tell Congress: You have to do your job to get paid.

The GOP-controlled House of Representatives decided to shut down the government rather than pass a spending bill that funds the Affordable Care Act, even though the Supreme Court already upheld the legislation. And while hundreds of thousands of hard-working federal employees will stop receiving the paychecks they need to feed their families and pay their mortgages, Congress will continue to get paid for refusing to do the job they were elected to do. Sign our petition to demand that Congress lose their paychecks until they come to a resolution.

Remove David Koch from Board of Trustees at WGBH

Conservative Extremist, David Koch sits on the Board of the most influential PBS station in the country, WGBH in Boston. He's already used his influence to corrupt another major PBS station in New York, and he must be stopped. Sign our petition to keep PBS free of radical right-wing censorship.

Gov. Brown: Sign LIFE Act gun safety bills

Key bills from the LIFE (Lifesaving Intelligent Firearms Enforcement) Act sit on Gov. Brown's desk -- including a loophole-free assault weapons ban and background checks for ammunition purchases. With the stroke of a pen, he could give California the smartest, safest gun laws in the nation, but he has a poor track record when it comes to gun safety. We must convince Gov. Brown to sign these laws to protect Californians from more senseless gun violence.


We're fighting for a more progressive California.
