Guarantee health care for all! Pass the Healthy California Act.

Every Californian deserves high-quality, guaranteed health care. But even under the Affordable Care Act, over three million Californians are left out and still lack health insurance. They’re our parents, children, grandparents, neighbors, co-workers, and community members.

The Healthy California Act would establish a transparent health care system and a universal standard of safe, quality care -- essentially an improved Medicare for every Californian.

Sign the petition if you agree that health care is a human right and that it’s time every Californian is guaranteed health care.

Tell California Legislators: Pass the California Money Bail Reform Act

California’s bail system is completely and utterly broken. Our state wastes more than $1.8 billion each year jailing people who are waiting for trial -- and ruins the lives of countless people who’ve been accused of a crime but can’t afford exorbitant bail amounts.

New legislation called the California Money Bail Reform Act of 2017 would reform our bail system. Instead of requiring money bail payments in all cases, regardless of a person’s risk, SB 10 and AB 42 would require courts to judge each case individually before setting the terms of release. This reform is a complete no-brainer. And it has a track record of success. 

Call your Representative NOW: Hands off our health care!

If Trumpcare passes, 24 million people would lose access to affordable health care. Older Americans would pay much more for health insurance -- 5 times as much as younger people -- but get way less help paying for insurance because of a $600 billion tax break for the ultra-rich and a $400 million giveaway to insurance executives. It's completely unacceptable.

Trumpcare must be stopped! Call your representative TODAY!

Send a letter to Congress demanding they oppose the American Health Care Act

Trumpcare, or the American Health Care Act (AHCA) was just released to the public -- and, unsurprisingly, it does exactly the opposite of everything Trump promised it would. 

The good news is that we aren’t the only ones who want to keep Trumpcare from passing -- from AARP to the American Hospital Association to Breitbart, Trumpcare faces powerful opposition in Washington. And that means we can beat it if we make sure that every elected official in both houses of Congress hear from their constituents now. Will you send a letter to your representatives telling them to reject the American Health Care Act today?

March in D.C. with the Courageous Resistance

We will not sit by quietly while Donald Trump dismantles our rights. The Courageous Resistance is hitting the streets of Washington D.C. on January 21 with thousands of feminists and declaring our resistance to the pussy-grabber-in-chief! 

With a platform based on inclusivity and intersectionality, the march is already poised to draw more buses of people than Trump's inauguration likely will itself -- 1,000 more buses. We need to make sure our collective voices are heard loud and clear, and the only way to do that is to make sure thousands of people show up.

Ensure affordable housing in Alameda -- YES on Measure M1 and NO on Measure L1

Rent in Alameda is increasing, on average, at 10 times the rate of inflation. Household income, however, has not kept pace. As a result, more and more Alameda residents are unable to afford housing thanks to skyrocketing rents and the rising crisis of “no-cause” evictions. This is unacceptable.
