Courage Campaign fights to hold our political leaders and most powerful corporations accountable to the will of the people.

Tell your member of Congress to support to the Essential Workers Bill of Rights

Essential workers are on the frontlines of this pandemic, and many are working in high-risk conditions without appropriate protective equipment, safety standards, or job security. These workers put their health on the line when they go to work every day. That’s why Rep. Ro Khanna (CA) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (MA) introduced the Essential Workers Bill of Rights, which ensures that essential workers have. While they work hard to care for us, it’s up to us to come together and care for them. 

Sign the petition to call on your member of Congress to support essential workers as they care for us during this crisis.

Call your Senator to support workers' rights

Tech corporations like Lyft and Uber are misclassifying gig workers and cheating them out of a living wage and essential protections.

Assembly Bill 5 (Gonzalez) would fix that by enshrining the historic California Supreme Court Dynamex ruling into law so that corporations have to pass a simple ABC test to determine their workers are independent contractors or employees. Your senator needs to hear from the everyday Californians that support the bill. Call today and let your senator know!

Don’t Let Big Plastic Trash our Oceans

Plastic pollution is wreaking havoc on our marine ecosystems and plastic manufacturers want to dramatically increase U.S. plastic production over the next decade.

We and our partners are demanding the EPA do its job and stop the industry from trashing our oceans and polluting frontline communities as it moves to dramatically expand U.S. plastic production.

Add your name to the petition demanding the EPA protect vulnerable communities and marine wildlife from plastic pollution.

Tell your state senator: YES on AB 5

Last April, the California Supreme Court delivered one of the most pro-worker decisions in decades. The ruling on Dynamex Operations West, Inc. v. Superior Court of Los Angeles ensures that companies aren’t misclassifying workers and cheating them out of basic protections like a minimum wage, unemployment insurance, and workers’ compensation.

AB 5 is a bill that would codify this important decision into law and clarify it to provide certainty to employers and workers alike. 

Sign the petition and ask your State Senator to vote YES on AB 5:

Tell your state legislator to support to California Act to Save Lives

43 Californians have been killed so far this year because police officers are legally allowed to use deadly force whenever they deem it "reasonable." 

AB 392, the California Act to Save Lives, would amend the use of force standard so that police officers can only shoot when absolutely necessary and when there are no other alternatives to addressing the situation. With the passage of AB 392, police officers would be held accountable for their actions -- which is why the police lobby is trying so hard to defeat this bill.

Sign the petition to call on your state legislators to stand up to the police lobby and demand police accountability!

Make calls to win back the House

With at least eight very vulnerable Republican seats, California can be the major player in winning back the House this November. But it can only happen if everyone gets out and votes! The most successful way to reach potential voters is through phone banking. Using our phone banking tool is incredibly easy.

We need as many callers as possible to win this historic November election.


#StopKavanaugh by calling voters in key states

We'll be using a calling tool that allows you to call voters in key states whose Senators have not yet publicly opposed Kavanaugh. You can share the devastating impact of Kavanaugh's nomination and urge them to ask their Senator to oppose Brett Kavanaugh's nomination. You can immediately connect them to their Senator with the click of a button.

Host a phone bank to win back the House

With at least eight flippable GOP seats, California can be the reason we win back the House this November. We need as many phone bank hosts (and phone bankers) as possible to win this historic November election. 

When you sign up, you'll be provided with all the tools you need to run a successful phone bank and we'll be here to support you every step of the way.

Get involved: Win back the House 2018

#CaliforniaCounts in this election more than ever and we are on a mission to win back the House! To do this, we need to reach over 350,000 voters in key districts, especially those most overlooked: youth, women, and voters of color. Can you join Courage Campaign and our partners at Flip the 14 and United Domestic Workers this election season? 

Sign up to volunteer today. After signing up, we will send you all of the information and tools that you need. 

Big Banks must divest from immigrant detention

Right now Big Banks like Wells Fargo, JPMorgan Chase, and BlackRock are getting rich off Trump’s heartless ”zero tolerance” that rips breastfeeding infants from their mother’s arms and indefinitely detains immigrants seeking asylum from violence. Big Banks heavily invest in these inhumane private-prison companies and make loans that keep them in business.

Will you sign the petition telling #BackersofHate to divest from immigrant detention?
