California


California voters have spoken: YES on Prop. 59! We Want a 28th Amendment to Make Clear: Corporations Are NOT People, Money is NOT Speech!

“Shall California’s elected officials use all of their constitutional authority, including, but not limited to, proposing and ratifying one or more amendments to the United States Constitution, to overturn Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission (2010) 558 U.S. 310, and other applicable judicial precedents, to allow the full regulation or limitation of campaign contributions and spending, to ensure that all citizens, regardless of wealth, may express their views to one another, and to make clear that corporations should not have the same constitutional rights as human beings?”

But that's not all...

At their State Party Convention in May 2017, the California Democratic Party unanimously passed a resolution to make their position clear: 

ABOLISH CORPORATE CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS & MONEY AS POLITICAL SPEECH!

SUPPORT THE MOVE TO AMEND CAMPAIGN!

Incarcerated Women Are Fighting on the Front Lines of California's Wildfires for $1 an Hour

October 11, 2017

Other inmates are not at all pleased by the wages, particularly considering the incredible hazards of the job. La’Sonya Edwards, an inmate who fights fires in southern California, told the New York Times in August that she makes around $500 per year in camp, plus an extra few hundred for working on the fire line. The salary of a full time civilian fighter starts at around $40,000.
