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?

Call your Assemblymember and ask them to save net neutrality

 A key committee in the Assembly will vote on the bills this week. We can be sure that members of that committee are hearing from telecom lobbyists -- we need to make sure they hear loud and clear from everyday people about why net neutrality is so important to us.
 
Will you call your Assemblymember and ask them to protect net neutrality?

Tell Congress: End family separations!

Trump's immigration agents have snatched over 11,000 children from their parents this year -- even those asking for political asylum after escaping horrible human rights abuses.

These are children, not bargaining chips. Trump can end family separations with one phone call -- but instead he's holding thousands of kids hostage to his extremist immigration agenda. Will you sign our emergency petition telling your member of Congress to vote NO on the two anti-immigrant GOP bills?

Disneyland workers need a living wage

Disneyland claims to be the "happiest place on Earth" but the Walt Disney Company fails to offer the same promise to its employees. 

Disneyland employees suffer through food insecurity, poverty, and even homelessness. These are hard workers who put all of this aside to provide visitors with great experiences. They deserve a living wage and not to have to depend on food banks and shelters. Join us in demanding that Walt Disney Company give its employees the compensation they deserve. 

Email your friends to help win back the House!

We're harnessing the power of a new tool called VoterCircle to connect Courage Campaign members to their friends and family members who live in the Republican-held districts that Democrats have the best chance of winning.

Here's how it works: Our friend-to-friend outreach tool will figure out how many of your contacts are eligible to vote in the seven most vulnerable Republican districts in California. From there, you can send a customizable, pre-written email to make sure they know that if they stand up, show up, and are counted, we can #WinBackTheHouse! Voters will hear from their most trusted sources that it's vitally important to get out and vote -- and that will help make sure we turn out enough Democratic voters to win!

Make calls to win back the House!

7 of the 23 seats we need to win back the House are in California. Learn more at CAcounts.org. These are Republican seats that voted for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump in 2016. We have a real chance of having Democrats on the ballot in all seven of those districts, but our hopes may be dashed if we don't turn out voters for the primary on June 5.

Fill out our form to make calls to neighboring Californians and help win back the House!

Write a Letter to the Editor to help save net neutrality in California

In a few short weeks, the California State Senate will vote on SB 822 by Senator Scott Wiener -- the strongest net neutrality protections proposed across the country. But now AT&T and Comcast's army of lobbyists are doing everything in their power to stop it.

One powerful way you can help build support and spark public conversation is by sending a letter to the editor in your local and regional newspapers. Will you take a few moments to send a letter to local and regional newspapers to protect net neutrality in California? 

Deliver California Values Act petitions to your city council or mayor

We've automatically delivered petition signatures to mayors around California via email. But there is nothing more powerful than meetings with constituents to encourage elected officials to take action. We'll provide basic support and guidance, including an electronic copy of petition signatures for you to present during your meeting!

Will you meet with your mayor or attend a meeting of your city council or county supervisors?

Don't let police officers get away with breaking the law!

Senate Bill 1421, by Nancy Skinner, limits a 1970s-era law that keeps police disciplinary records from the public. When a police officer shoots or sexually assaults a member of the public, the community deserves to know what happenedMore importantly, we deserve to know how the department responded so we can determine whether the systems meant to hold officers accountable for their actions are working.

Sign our emergency petition calling on lawmakers to support public accountability for police officers by passing SB 1421.

Support California's Police Accountability and Community Safety Act

Momentum is building behind a new California bill that would allow police officers to use deadly force only when "necessary to prevent imminent and serious bodily injury or death." This groundbreaking law -- the first of its kind in the entire country -- would prevent police officers from killing people without justification, and it would clear the way for them to be held accountable if they cross the line. Local departments would revise their use of force policies and put greater emphasis on de-escalation in their training.

Sign the petition and ask your assembly member to support the Police Accountability and Community Safety Act now.
