Count me in for bold action on climate change!

Climate Change

Ban microbeads!

Ocean Protection

  • Ban plastic microbeads: Urge your Assemblymember to support AB 888, which would phase out the use of polluting microbeads in personal care products in California by 2020.

Save the Monarch

Wildlife

  • Save the Monarch Butterfly: Urge your lawmaker to support AB 559, which will allow the Department of Fish and Wildlife to begin conservation efforts for the monarch butterfly by restoring and preserving natural habitats where monarch butterflies can thrive.

Save the Elephants!

Wildlife

  • Save the Elephants: Californians can help save the elephants by banning the ivory trade in our state, and passing AB 96 would do just that. Send your message to lawmakers now!

Fracking

Fracking

  • Stop fracking now: Urge Governor Jerry Brown to call an immediate moratorium on the risky practice of hydraulic fracking for oil and natural gas.

Lawmakers still listen to their constituents. A small number of phone calls or letters is taken to represent the opinion of many more people. A steady stream of feedback to elected and appointed officials has been repeatedly successful in convincing legislators to vote for environmental bills.
