The Clean and Healthy Bay ballot initiative may be the greatest opportunity in a generation for Bay Area residents to create a healthy and sustainable future for our children and grandchildren.
Gun violence in America is out of control. We cannot sit back while Congress refuses to act.
There is a 2016 ballot initiative in California that can set the gold standard for meaningful reforms to stop gun violence, creating a model that could be applied everywhere.
FOUR MILLION children, women, and families have fled from war-torn Syria toESCAPE violent extremism, NOT to spread it. But right-wing Republicans and some Democrats are being overpowered by fear and bigotry -- not logic, tolerance, and goodwill. They refuse to even consider allowing refugees to enter the United States, and are fast-tracking legislation to slam our doors on those who need refuge most!
The Koch brothers' war on the middle class continues. This time, their aim is to cripple public sector unions across the country.
We refuse to sit by and let this happen.
SIGN THE PETITION: Ask California’s leaders to provide IMMEDIATE relief to 4 million people without access to water
Four million people in California are without reliable access to safe, clean, and affordable drinking water. That’s more people than ALL of Los Angeles.
Since videos falsely demonizing Planned Parenthood were released in July, there have been a series of violent, politically-motivated attacks on Planned Parenthood clinic across the nation.
Big Energy -- Southern California Edison, Pacific Gas & Electric and San Diego Gas & Electric -- is trying to take down rooftop solar in California, and we need your help to stop it. They just filed a crippling proposal with the state's utility regulator, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), that would make it harder and more expensive to go solar. The CPUC has the power to stop this proposal in its tracks, but they must hear from you!
Enough is enough. Allegations of child sexual abuse and harassment have followed Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson for years -- from being accused of inappropriate sexual contact with at least three young students and volunteers at his charter school, St. HOPE, to allegedly sexually harassing and groping a female subordinate staffer and a city employee. The newly surfaced police video and audio recordings of one of the young survivors of his alleged sexual abuse -- who was 16 years old at the time of the recordings and alleged abuse -- is the final straw.
Nestlé, Coca-Cola and other corporations are making a huge profit off of trashing the most beautiful lands in America.
That's why there's a growing movement across the country to make all national parks bottled-water free. And Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA) -- which includes Golden Gate Park, Alcatraz Island, Muir Woods National Monument, and other iconic places in the Bay Area -- could be next in line.
The NRA has a chokehold on Congress. But President Obama can act right now to prevent the next mass shooting by using his executive authority to expand background checks on gun sales and help stop dangerous people from getting their hands on firearms.
