Call on California mayors and local government officials to support our immigrant communities

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is suing California for shielding immigrant communities from the Trump administration’s terroristic immigration policies. And now a number of California cities are voting to attack our immigrant friends and neighbors by undermining the California Values Act.

That’s why we’re calling on California mayors and local government officials to explicitly support the California Values Act. Now more than ever is it imperative that our representatives stand up for immigrant communities under attack and set an example for the country. Sign the petition and ask your mayor and local government officials to support the California Values Act now.

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?

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!

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 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.

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? 

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.

Congress must pass a clean, stand-alone DREAM Act

We have the chance to stop more than 800,000 deportations and pass a permanent DREAM Act through Congress. An overwhelming majority of Americans -- including Republicans -- favor preserving DACA and protecting DREAMers. Congresspeople from both sides of the aisle have come out in support of DREAMers. 

If enough of the public speaks out, we can make sure that Republicans don’t attach other proposals to the bill. Sign the petition telling members of Congress to introduce and pass a clean, stand-alone DREAM Act.
