Daily Action: Protect Ventura County's Drinking Water From Hazardous Drilling

A proposal for new tar-sands oil exploration in Camarillo has raised concerns about the safety of the Fox Canyon aquifer, and the drinking water Ventura County residents use every day. The Ventura County Board of Supervisors must insist on an environmental impact study before new drilling commences! Emails and public comments are needed surrounding Tuesday’s board meeting in Ventura!

Daily Action: Demand Accountability When Police Use Deadly Force

The California Act to Save Lives, A.B. 392, would prohibit police from using deadly force in situations when non-lethal alternatives should be used instead. Our police must be trained to avoid lethal violence, and they should be held accountable when their actions result in an unnecessary death. Let’s use snail mail, email and calls to convince ASM Jacqui Irwin to support this important legislation!

Daily Action: Tell Pompeo -- NO DOWNLOADABLE GUNS!

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said he will "look at" the State Department's recent decision to let a company post blueprints for downloadable guns online beginning next week. It's unconscionable to allow criminals, terrorists, domestic abusers to print functional and untraceable guns on demand! Use Everytown’s online form to contact Pompeo and demand sanity from State!

Daily Action: Urge Local DAs to Get on Board with Bail Reform

Consensus has been building across California, and across the nation, that our money bail system is antiquated and broken -- as our recent Daily Action argued. Still, the state’s elected prosecutors, both individually and through the California District Attorneys Association, have been undermining reform efforts. Let's join SWAN's effort to convince our local DAs to stop standing in the way of these necessary reforms!

Daily Action: Save Net Neutrality!

The FCC votes next week on Trump appointee (and former Verizon lawyer) Ajit Pai's plan to roll back Net Neutrality protections. Doing so destroy the internet's traditionally even playing field and allow ISPs to sell faster and more efficient access to the highest bidders. Let's put on a full-court press to urge the FCC to keep Net Neutrality protections in place -- or, if they won't, to convince our MoCs to write those rules into law!

Daily Action: Preserve Net Neutrality

July 12 is Net Neutrality Day, when supporters of open and unfettered access to the internet from across the nation are joining together for a day of action. FCC Chairman Ajit Pai is still plotting to undo Net Neutrality rules that forbid Internet Service Providers from favoring some content firms over others. The wealthiest firms must not be given "fast-lane" access to our web browsers!

Daily Action: Help Every Student Succeed in CA!

California's Board of Education is planning a bare-bones implementation of the federal Every Student Succeeds Act, with low accountability standards that might leave behind millions of children with disabilities, ESL students, and others who have difficulty learning. Leave a public comment with the board, and encourage them to hold our schools to a higher standard!

Daily Action: Stop a Censorship Attempt by the CVUSD School Board

Conservatives on the CVUSD school board are considering banning an award-winning novel from the high school curriculum on "moral" grounds. Let's urge the board members to reject censorship and allow curriculum experts to do their jobs, choosing materials for their merits rather than some community members' backward values.

Daily Action: Resist Trump's Draconian Immigration Regime!

Immigration policy continues to dominate our national debate. This week we heard of one of the first "dreamers" deported by the Trump administration. Meanwhile, in our state, the fate of the California Values Act resisting the Trump deportation regime may rest with swing votes like that of our own Assemblywoman, Jacqui Irwin. Our activism is necessary, today and every day, to uphold our values!

Daily Action: Ask Our School Boards to Create Safe Havens for Immigrants

Today we're emailing our local school board members, asking them to declare officially that our schools will be free from immigration enforcement activities; that they will promote diversity and inclusion; and that they will protect our most vulnerable students from bullying, harassment and discrimination.
