NOW is the time for Single Payer Healthcare in California

Coalition for Grassroots Progress
June 12, 2017                                                           
 

Have you heard? We just took a big step forward towards single payer healthcare in California.

The California Senate recently passed SB 562, the Healthy California Act. Be sure to thank Senator Mike McGuire for co-authoring SB562 as well as for his strong support in the State Senate, and Senator Bill Dodd, for voting yes on the bill.

Thank you to everyone who put so much effort into getting the bill past this first step.

Step two is to get the bill passed by the California Assembly. We can all make a big difference now with one or two phone calls. EVERY phone call counts!

Yes on Santa Rosa Measure C on June 6!

Coalition for Grassroots Progress
May 30, 2017                                               
 

The cost of renting a place to live in Santa Rosa has increased by 50% over the past five years, at a time when the vacancy rate is just 1%.

Students, seniors, the disabled, and the workforce all suffer in the face of this housing crisis that affects the entire city. A whopping 28% of Santa Rosa’s renters pay more than 50% of their income for rent.

But Santa Rosa is poised to make important progress with the June 6th election. Measure C, Rent Stabilization, will cover 12,000 rental units in the city, stabilizing rents for thousands of residents, while guaranteeing landlords a fair return on their investment, allowing increases of up to 3% per year and giving landlords a process for just-cause eviction.

Measure C is endorsed by the Coalition for Grassroots Progress, and supported by private citizens, social justice organizations, labor unions, and local Democratic Party organizations.

You made a difference. Now about nuclear madness…

Coalition for Grassroots Progress               
February 18, 2017

 

Earlier this month, many Marin and Sonoma County progressives traveled to San Rafael to vote for the Coalition for Grassroots Progress slate of candidates running to represent Assembly District 10 on the California Democratic Central Committee. Thanks to a high turnout of progressives, the slate won every available seat in that election. 

After the deeply alarming results of the presidential election, the Democratic Party is at a crossroads, and our new delegates are eager to return the party to its roots as the party of the people. Look here to see the names of the delegates representing us at the state Democratic Party level for the next two years.

Here’s a big thank-you to everyone who came out to vote for our new California State Democratic Central Committee representatives!

We’re not relaxing after that success; there is no time to waste. We are getting to work, both within the Democratic Party and outside on the streets, to confront the many threats we face with the incoming President and his administration.
