Tell billionaires and big business:
Stop trying to silence our voice

There's a petition being circulated at local grocery stores and shopping centers in your neighborhood asking voters to sign a deceptive new initiative. It's the same thing that's been tried before - a thinly veiled effort to silence the voices of working Californians like us - while leaving big business and billionaires with uncontested political influence.

Here’s what you can do to keep that from happening:

  1. Don't sign the petition
  2. Spread the word to your family and friends.
  3. Report any signature-gathering by calling 1-877-440-9585. We’ll send out a truth squad to educate voters.
  4. Send the message below to the backers of this deceptive initiative.

What's at stake? Working people's ability to protect our schools, communities, healthcare, and environment will be greatly reduced by silencing our unions.

Meanwhile, corporations would be allowed to continue to use their record profits to spend as much as they want to elect politicians. Corporations already outspend unions 15-1; now they want complete control of the political system.

The message we'll send
"You're hurting working California families by trying to take away our voice in the political arena. Stop the deceptive politics, and stop the political attacks on working people."
