California Prop 12

YES 

Raise meat farming standards and require eggs to be cage-free

Prop 12 would be the most far-reaching law for farm animals in history, banning the sale of eggs, pork, and veal from caged animals in California.  The Guardian ran a feature about it headlined, “History in the making: California aims for world’s highest farm animal welfare law.” Here’s a brief and very informative NowThis video which perfectly sums up why Prop 12 is needed.

Prop 12 goes far beyond animal welfare issues and has broad food safety implications as well, which is exactly why Center for Food Safety and National Consumers League both endorse Prop 12.  Additionally, Prop 12 would help reduce some of the worst environmental and public health impacts of factory farming, which is why the California Sierra Club, the Center for Biological Diversity and Earthjustice all endorse Prop 12.

Furthermore, Prop 12 will also mean more employment opportunities in the workforce and better working conditions for farm workers, which is exactly why groups like theCalifornia Labor Federation (which consists of 1,200 unions across the state), United Farm Workers, and over 100 responsible farmers all support Prop 12.

You can find a full list of the individuals and groups that have endorsed Prop 12 here.


California Prop 11

NO

Reduce basic employee protections - like paid break time - for private ambulance workers


California Prop 10

YES 

Restore the power of local communities to pass rent control and make housing more affordable

Proposition 10 will help renters keep their homes and take our communities back from under the thumb of for-profit developers who are raking in profits by driving rent sky-high.

Decades of pressure from corporate developers pushing a handful of lawmakers to make housing unaffordable has pushed working people out of our cities, out of our state, or onto our streets.

Prop 10 will restore the right of local cities and counties to decide how to expand affordable housing and protect renters in ways that make sense for their own neighborhoods. Combined with Propositions 1 and 2, which provide $6 billion in funding for affordable housing and homeless services, California can take the first step to keeping working people in our homes while expanding housing to drive down the skyrocketing costs of living in our state.


California Prop 8

YES 

Protect kidney patients from excessive dialysis charges and discrimination


California Prop 7

NO POSITION

Make it easier for California to switch to permanent daylight savings time


California Prop 6

NO

Stop the attack on bridge and road safety that hurts public transit we rely on


California Prop 5

NO

Stop corporate attempt to take $2 billion per year away from our schools and communities

Instead of solving California’s severe housing crisis, the real estate industry is pitting seniors against hopeful homeowners to profit from the increasing sale of expensive homes. Prop 5 finds new ways to benefit the wealthy and robs our schools and local communities of critically needed revenue.

Prop 5 does not create new affordable housing, lower the cost of rent, address homelessness, or help first-time homebuyers. Instead, Prop 5 is a tax giveaway to wealthy seniors who decide to buy a new, more expensive home outside the county they currently live in. Seniors can already transfer their property tax discount if they buy a retirement home in the county they now live in. To make things worse, Prop 5 is another huge blow to local communities. At a time when we need to restore funding to schools and local services, Prop 5 would take away over $2 billion every year from schools, health care services, infrastructure improvements, and public safety.


California Prop 4

YES 

Expand and renovate hospitals for children


California Prop 3

YES 

Provide safe drinking water and repair water infrastructure
