Daily Action: Protect the California Values Act in Thousand Oaks

In recent weeks Trump supporters and immigration opponents have made the rounds at local-government meetings, seeking (and obtaining, more than a dozen times so far) resolutions to undermine the California Values Act (SB 54). Now they're targeting the Thousand Oaks City Council, and we must fight back. Send a letter to the editor of the Acorn or Star; participate in public comments during the April 24 city council meeting, and stand up for our immigrant neighbors!

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!

Weekend Action: Comment on DOE's Santa Susana Cleanup Plans

The Department of Energy is encouraging public comment through March 14 on its decision not to perform a thorough cleanup of the toxic and nuclear waste at the Santa Susana Field Lab site. Instead, the DoE now plans to leave much (or perhaps nearly all) of the contaminant on the site, in close proximity to nearly half a million people. Let's urge the DoE to fulfill the legally binding commitments it made with the state in 2010, and completely clean up the SSFL site.
