Position Papers
Fixing California's Broken Healthcare System
Nearly 7 million Californians are uninsured, and the current system is not working. We need healthcare reform that will provide accessible, affordable universal coverage to every Californian.
California needs to prioritize education if we hope to remain the 8th largest economy in the world.
The reason California has grown to be such an economic power in the world is that we had a world class education system in this state that was second to none.
Saving the Planet for Future Generations
Protecting our environment, reversing the effects of global warming, reducing our carbon footprint, and insuring our water, air and food are clean and safe now and for generations to come are the most critical issues facing California, our nation and the world.
