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.
While California has struggled through one of the worst droughts in its history, Nestlé has been using an expired permit to illegally pump as much as 28 million gallons of water a year out of the San Bernardino National Forest. No more. We're filing suit with the U.S. Forest Service to stop Nestlé once and for all. Will you chip in to make sure we have the resources to fight and win?
According to Mother Jones magazine, popular California produce companies -- Sunview, Halos Mandarins, Trinchero, and Bee Sweet Citrus -- may be growing their crops with oil industry wastewater laced with toxic compounds and carcinogens. Join us and pledge to stop buying these potentially contaminated products until these companies prove they are NOT grown with oil wastewater!
California law does NOT protect your electronic information from being accessed by law enforcement WITHOUT a warrant. This means that everything that you share online is at risk for being tracked. Join us to support the California Electronic Communications Act (SB 178) to modernize California’s privacy laws and REQUIRE law enforcement to obtain a warrant before they can access an individual’s personal electronic information.
Reporters are digging into secret recordings and documents that indicate the influence of dirty money could go all the way to the top: Mayor Ed Lee. And at the very least, a culture of corruption is rampant in City Hall. For years, it has been clear that San Francisco is being run for the benefit of a wealthy few who influence City Hall by controlling who is elected and how their campaigns are funded. This overwhelming influx of big money in politics is fundamentally corrupting the city's democracy. Sign the petition and call for a wide-ranging and completely independent investigation into political corruption in San Francisco!
James Hansen, formerly NASA’s Climate Chief -- just released a terrifying paper that predicts unavoidable sea level rise unless we take major, immediate action. Join us and tell your California Legislators to drastically increase our investment in renewable energy, dramatically reduce car emissions, and make huge increases in energy efficiency!
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.
