• NEW AS OF AUGUST: Say NO to AB 84 -- call the State Senate Elections Committee today!
OPPOSE the State Senate's taking up AB 84. Stop corporations and wealthy interests from the power grab that allows them to circumvent campaign finance laws and amass power within our state legislature.
Update 8/15/18: AP article on passage of AB 84 out of committee
UPDATE 8/24/18: Ding dong, the bill is dead...
Congratulations to all who called -- it worked!
• Support AB 931 by calling your State Senator. According to the ACLU.
Police departments in California are some of the deadliest in the country. Police in Kern County, for example, have killed more people per capita than in any other county in the U.S. But many of these deaths could have been prevented if police were held to a higher standard that valued the preservation of life. Fortunately, Assemblymembers Shirley Weber (D-San Diego) and Kevin McCarty (D-Sacramento) introduced legislation to update California’s deadly use of force standard. Under AB 931, police would only be allowed to use deadly force if there were no reasonable alternatives available and if there was an imminent threat to the officer or another person’s safety.... AB 931 will save lives and get us one step closer to that.
