Keep us fighting corporate lobbyists and holding Sacramento accountable!

Keep us fighting corporate lobbyists and holding Sacramento accountable!

Courage Campaign just finished its most effective year fighting for progressive legislation in Sacramento, but this is only the beginning of we can accomplish by raising our voices together. Become a recurring monthly donor to ensure we can expand our aggressive people-powered fights for transparency and accountability.

Our seven victories of 2012 include:

  1. The California Secure Choice Retirement Savings Program - SB 1234 provides low-wage workers whose employers don't offer a 401K plan with a simple way to save for retirement.
     
  2. Saving CEQA - Along with our friends at the California League of Conservation Voters, we stopped a secretive, last-minute attempt by corporations to gut the California Environmental Quality Act. Reform may be needed, but we look forward to investigating potential improvements in the light of day.
     
  3. The Homeowner Bill of Rights - SB 900 and AB 278 outlawed the most deceptive and unethical practices of Big Banks during the foreclosure process. It was signed by Gov. Brown in July.
     
  4. Oakland's Goldman Sachs resolution - The Oakland City Council barred Goldman Sachs from ever doing business with the city again, unless they renegotiated a toxic debt swap that's robbing Oakland taxpayers of $4 million per year. The resolution is a model for cities all over the country locked into similar bogus agreements.
     
  5. Election Day Voter Registration - AB 1436 allows voters to register up to and including Election Day and could increase voter turnout by 5% or 850,000 Californians.
     
  6. Signature gathering translation - SB 1233 requires that ballot measures be translated into the languages covered by the Federal Voting Rights Act of 1965, so voters not fluent in English can fully participate and protect themselves from misinformation.
     
  7. Banning "reparative" therapy for LGBT youth - SB 1172 outlaws dangerous and scientifically bogus programs to change a minor's sexual orientation.
