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. 

Reproductive health rights for all workers

The Reproductive Health Non-Discrimination Act (AB 569) would protect California’s employees from workplace discrimination based on their personal reproductive health care decisions. The bill does not force employers to change their views on reproductive health -- it simply ensures that employers do not unlawfully discriminate against women who make their own family-planning choices. AB 569 is currently headed to Governor Brown’s desk, and we need your help to make sure it is signed into law.

Sign the petition telling Governor Brown to sign the Reproductive Health Non-Discrimination Act.

Tell California Republicans to oppose the health care repeal!

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced that the Graham-Cassidy health care repeal bill will be voted on next week. If we don’t act now, it just might pass. We need to fight as ferociously as we did the last time a threat to our health care reared its head. 

Call today and ask protect our health care by publicly opposing the Graham-Cassidy health care repeal.

Call Governor Brown to demand a ban on chlorpyrifos

California has the power to ban the use of chlorpyrifos in the state, and if it does, it will mean that a huge portion of the country’s food is no longer sprayed with the chemical. Will you place a call to Governor Brown and let him know that Californians will no longer tolerate our food being sprayed with this dangerous chemical?

Stop Big Pharma's price gouging!

SB 17 would require pharmaceutical companies to publish reports on how the money they charge for drugs is spent. But PhRMA -- Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, a group representing corporations such as Bayer, Merck, and Pfizer -- is trying to stop the bill in its tracks.

Will you sign the petition to pass SB 17 and make Big PhRMA tell us the truth about drug pricing?

Tell Target and Costco to drop abusive trucking companies

Forced into indentured servitude with threats to sign lease-to-own contracts or be fired, truckers spend over 100 hours a week trying to pay off their trucks. Sometimes at the end of a week they end up owing the company!

But major retailers -- like Target and Costco -- who employ these port truckers along their chain of production, can help stop the abuse. By dropping these trucking companies, they set an example for other corporations and let them know that we're watching.

Tell the California Legislature: STOP the corporate Cap & Trade bill!

The California Legislature is about to vote on a deeply flawed climate bill that won’t do enough to reduce carbon emissions, while also giving corporate polluters carte blanche to keep poisoning California’s cities -- with poor folks and communities of color paying the biggest toll.

Assembly Bill 398 -- a bill to extend CA's cap and trade system from 2020 to 2030 -- is stuffed with giveaways to Big Oil and other corporate polluters in order to court Republican support. But sources inside the Capitol report that the bill is vulnerable. We can kill this bill if enough Democrats vote no despite the intense political pressure to support it.
