2017 was a hard year. But in a thousand ways, big and small, you showed up. You loved, you learned, you resisted — and you cleared the way for a better year in 2018.

We've got to remember that the future is ours to build. And this year, local action in California will have a huge impact. While the Trump administration spreads hate, we can spread hope. It's up to all of us to reimagine a country that includes all people in the promises of the Constitution.

❯❯ Join us for our webinars on critical civil liberties issues facing our state and the nation.

  • Voting Rights
    Tuesday, Jan. 16, 6-7:30 p.m.

    California has one of the lowest rates of voter registration and voter turn-out in the country. 2018 is a critical year for ballot measures, local elections like the DA races, and of course, changing who holds the keys to power. In this webinar, we'll give you the resources you need to get all eligible California voters to the polls, starting now!
  • Reproductive Justice & Sex Education
    Tuesday, Jan. 23, 6-7 p.m.

    We're in a critical moment. Sexual harassment and abuse is being both challenged and normalized. Discrimination against LGBTQ people is on the rise. Here in California, we have the power to make a change. Our schools are required to teach sex ed that addresses healthy relationships and consent and that challenges stereotypes about gender and sexual orientation. But many school districts need extra encouragement to provide the required instruction. They need to hear from you. In this webinar, you will learn how to be a parent advocate for sex education in your district.
  • Criminal Justice Reform
    Tuesday, Feb. 6, 6-7 p.m.

    Right now, a powerful coalition of conservative law enforcement is targeting California mayors and city councils with a cynical misinformation campaign. Their goal is to increase support for mass incarceration and roll back the clock on criminal justice reform. We need you to counter their lies with the truth. In this webinar, we'll set you up with the skills you need to advocate for local initiatives that truly promote public safety and healthy communities.

In 2018, let's resolve to reimagine what's possible. The future is ours to build!
