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 state senator NOW: Protect immigrant communities!

Donald Trump's rampant immigration raids are terrorizing our immigrant friends, neighbors, and community members across the state. We can stand up to this onslaught by passing the California Values Act (SB 54), an urgent bill that would stop state resources from being used to aid Trump’s anti-immigrant agenda.

California legislators: say NO to Trump’s Muslim registry in CA

The Trump Administration’s policies are tearing California’s families apart. From immigration raids to travel bans to the border wall to hate crimes, the fear is unmistakable -- and it’s just the beginning.

The Religious Freedom Act (SB 31) -- which is currently moving through the California Senate -- will protect Californians from yet another registry based on religion, nationality, or ethnicity. This bill must be passed to protect our neighbors from this blatant discrimination. Sign the petition to ask your lawmakers to support the Religious Freedom Act (SB 31).

Host a single-payer house party

In partnership with SEIU and Health Access, Courage is planning actions over the next few weeks to make it clear that Californians demand their reps stand up to Trump and vote to protect the ACA. At the same time, we’re also working to pass a bill to guarantee health care for ALL Californians. The Healthy California Act would contain rising health care costs, and, most importantly, save lives.

We’re calling for statewide house parties on Saturday, April 1 in cities and towns across California to bring together friends, family and neighbors to build awareness and support for single-payer. 

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? 

Demand Rep. Devin Nunes to resign from the House Intelligence Committee

Rep. Devin Nunes -- the chair of the House Intelligence Committee, whose job it is to investigate President Donald Trump’s ties to Russia -- is one of Trump's most committed allies, a clear conflict of interest.

Rep. Nunes can't and won't give us the investigation we all deserve. He is on Team Trump, when he should be fighting for the truth. That's why we're asking Nunes to step down from his role as chair of the House Intelligence Committee.

Tell Congress to remove Bannon from the National Security Council

Donald Trump's decision to seat extremist, white nationalist Steve Bannon on the National Security Council, while downgrading the standing of our military and intelligence leaders, is dangerous for America and the world.

Congress must be a check on this dangerous politicization of our nation's security and immediately pass legislation or take other action to keep Steve Bannon off the National Security Council.

Tell California Legislators: Support the California Values Act to Protect Immigrant Communities

Donald Trump’s Presidency poses a direct threat to immigrants, Muslims, people of color, LGBTQ+ people, women and many others. And he's not wasting any time to take executive action that attacks undocumented people, refugees, the muslim community, and more. California legislators must do all they can to aggressively disrupt Trump’s plans and stand with our must vulnerable communities.

Tell Callifornia Senators to stop Trump’s Supreme Court nominee

Democratic senators must stand in the way of any nominee who would rubber-stamp Trump’s most un-American policies: religious tests, refugee bans, or permitting and encouraging discrimination against LGBTQ people and families.

Senator Jeff Merkley just announced that he will filibuster Trump’s nomination, and he needs 40 more Democrats to commit to joining him for the filibuster to succeed. Now is the time for bold, brave political leadership. Will you tell your Senators to support a filibuster and do everything in their power to stop Trump's Supreme Court nominee?
