Tell Visa: stop processing assault weapon transactions

Almost 50,000 Courage Campaign members have called on Visa to stop facilitating the sale of assault weapons. 

Can you help us ramp up the pressure on Visa and other credit card companies by helping flood their phone lines this week?

Stop Trump’s offshore drilling “plan”

Donald Trump wants to open nearly every inch of the U.S. coast to offshore drilling -- even in California, where drilling hasn't been allowed for 30 years.

But Trump won’t be able to get away with it without the support of Republican members of Congress in coastal states, many of whom are vulnerable in 2018Join us in telling Congress to oppose Trump's offshore drilling plan. 

Tell financial services companies to stop enabling assault weapons sales

The shortest path to reduce gun violence and limit the sale of assault weapons won’t run through Congress -- it runs through the banking and financial services industry.

With a simple change to their terms of service, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and other credit card companies and payment processors can stop accepting or processing payments from retailers that sell assault weapons, bump stocks, and other weapons of mass murder. Sign the petition today!

Tell the California Legislature to save net neutrality now!

Last month, Donald Trump’s FCC repealed federal net neutrality laws. But if you thought the fight for net neutrality was over, think again! The California legislature is preparing to consider new legislation that would protect net neutrality in the nation’s most populous state.

The telecom industry will fight California’s net neutrality legislation with everything it’s got. That’s why we need you, and thousands others like you, to speak up now to defend the open Internet. Please sign the petition calling on the California Legislature to protect net neutrality.

Stop Trump from starting nuclear war with North Korea

Only Republicans in Congress can rein Trump in and stop him from blundering the US into a nuclear war. But not a single sitting Republican lawmaker has denounced Trump’s dangerous tweet. 

To us, it’s simple: if GOP lawmakers won’t stand up to the President when he threatens the basic safety and security of our nation, they don’t deserve their jobs.

That’s why we’re launching an emergency petition demanding that every Republican member of Congress denounce Trump’s nuclear aggression and limit his ability to start a nuclear war. Will you sign it now?

Tell Congress to save net neutrality now!

In 2015, we won net neutrality rules that protect free speech, competition, and diversity online. But Trump’s FCC just voted to allow big telecom companies to profit by acting as gatekeepers over what’s allowed on their networks, and how accessible it is.

We have a chance to undo the damage. Congress can use the Congressional Review Act to reverse the FCC's new regulation, which would restore the 2015 net neutrality rules as the law of the land. Sign the petition telling members of Congress to save net neutrality using the Congressional Review Act.

Tell Governor Brown to Protect Californians

Currently, there are four gun safety bills on Governor Jerry Brown’s desk awaiting his signature, but Gov. Brown has pandered to NRA supporters and vetoed life-saving gun bills in the past, even after the Sandy Hook massacre in 2013. We must make our voices heard and demand that he sign every one of these bills.

Sign the petition demanding that Governor Brown protect Californians.

Attorney General Becerra: Join the Exxon Investigation

ExxonMobil has known for decades that fossil fuels cause climate change, but it continues to publicly deny global warming -- harming our environment and people in the process.

The attorneys general of Massachusetts and New York have launched an investigation into Exxon to hold the company accountable for misleading its shareholders and the public about the effects of fossil fuels on our climate. We’re joining with both individuals and organizations across the state to call on California Attorney General Xavier Becerra to join this investigation. 

Sign our letter asking California Attorney General Becerra to join the Exxon investigation. 

Call Governor Brown: End HIV Stigma

Senate Bill 239 -- which would modernize California's HIV criminal laws and significantly improve public health -- has passed the legislature. Now it’s facing its biggest hurdle yet as it heads to Governor Brown’s desk.

California's current HIV laws were written in the 1980's and 90's. It's time we change these laws and stop criminalizing and stigmatizing people living with HIV. Will you place a call to Governor Brown and ask him to sign SB 239 into law and help protect people with HIV? 


We're fighting for a more progressive California.
