Take Action

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!

Call your legislator to keep families home

Currently, over half of California's renters have to pay over 1/3 of their income on rent, which is unsustainable for the health and well-being of families, our business climate and the economy, and for our environment. We can't afford to wait longer for change.

The Keep Families Home bill package -- which includes AB 1481 (Bonta) and AB 1482 (Chiu) -- needs to be enacted this year if we hope to reduce the hardship, displacement and homelessness harming Californians. These two bills will help increase stability, security, and affordability for California's renters, by returning more tools to local jurisdictions to stabilize rents and protect renters from unfair evictions.

Call your legislator and ask them to support the Keep Families Home bill package, which includes AB 1481 and AB 1482.

Pledge to defend LA's kids from corporate lobbyists and vote for Measure EE

Measure EE is a progressive parcel tax that primarily asks corporations to fund lower class sizes, and attract and retain quality teachers, counselors, school nurses, librarians, support staff, and principals in LA schools.

Some corporate lobbyists and mega-landlords are opposed to Measure EE because they're more concerned with profits than LA's children. That's why we need your help to get Measure EE passed on June 4.

Sign the pledge to prioritize our children and our classrooms!

Call your legislator to protect Californians' health

Undocumented Californians are considered ineligible for insurance just because of their immigration status, which makes them the largest group of uninsured people in the state. AB 4 can ensure all Californians get the care they need -- but we need your help to make sure it passes. Can you call and let know your legislator know that constituents support AB 4?

Stop corporate lobbyists from underfunding our schools

Earlier this year, the teachers of the Los Angeles Unified School District went on strike to get a better deal for their students. The district, its workers, and other stakeholders came together and acknowledged that the decades-long funding crisis in our public schools must be addressed.

That’s why on the June 4 ballot, Measure EE will ask corporations to pay a little more in taxes to lower class sizes and attract and retain quality teachers, counselors, school nurses, librarians, support staff and principals.

Tell your representative to stop the wall!

Trump has declared a State of Emergency to spend up to $8 billion on his border wall, his most blatant attack yet on our Constitution and on people of color.

Sign the petition and ask your U.S. House representative to block this emergency declaration.

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.
