CFA Political Action Items: Please join us!
Updated: August 21st

1.  We won — AB 1460 is now the law!  Thanks to everyone who contacted the Governor and took other action to win this victory.  It took two years, but its another example that political action can help get the goods.  We still need to make sure the CSUs implement the law properly (CFA link). 

2. Our tax the rich campaign has made progress. The Commit to Equity Coalition (CFA is a member) held dozens of actions this summer (car caravans, press events), and successfully supported the introduction of two bills:  AB 1253 to tax income of millionaires and AB 2088 to tax wealth of billionaires.  Can you help us win these and other measures to raise $billons in new revenue to stop cuts?  Please contact Ron Hayduk at rhayduk@igc.org to find out more. 

3.  Schools and Communities First (Prop 15):  Prop 15, which will appear on the November ballot, would raise $12 billion per year for K-12 and Community Colleges.   

4.  CFA endorsed Jackie Fielder who is running for CA Senate vs. Scott Weiner. Jackie Fielder would be the AOC of the West Coast.

5. CFA endorsed the Labor Slate – “Working-class people demand working-class representation.”

6.  CFA endorsed the CA Public Bank Alliance – AB 310  &  Public Bank Alliance Press Release.
