40% of California counties have no clinics that provide abortions, according to the most recently available data. Black and Latinx people, and people living in poverty, face profound barriers to accessing abortion care.

Right now, instead of creating permanent and supportive housing, @CAGovernor @GavinNewsom and a number of state legislators are steamrolling costly legislation that would establish a court system that would force people who are disabled and unhoused into treatment and institutionalization.

The governor's so-called "CARE" court proposal will have the power to impose:
▪️forced hospitalization
▪️state conservatorship
▪️forced medication
▪️criminal penalties
…all while calling it “care.”

We oppose #SB1338 — a statewide sweep of unhoused people and a gross violation of human rights that targets Black, Brown and Indigenous communities.

All families who lost their loved ones to police deserve unbiased medical investigations. California lawmakers must do more to stop law enforcement from abusing their powers.

Ten counties in California already have independent coroner or medical offices so sheriffs cannot interfere with autopsies and investigations.

By passing #AB1608, every county in California will be required to have independent coroner or medical offices.

On the last day of #PrideMonth, tell Gov. Newsom to sign #SB357 into law to protect Black and Brown trans communities who are targeted, profiled and arrested by police due to outdated loitering laws. Link to take action in our bio or highlights. ...

#CARECourt will criminalize the unhoused and replace existing mental health programs with a system of forced treatment. Tell your CA lawmakers and @CAgovernor 🚫NO CARE COURTS🚫 — Link in bio. ...

We have a lot of work to do here in California to end this struggle. Far too many laws and systems in our state present obstacles to true bodily autonomy for the most marginalized.

To get to true reproductive justice beyond Roe in California, we need to advance bold policy, organize and build power, and shift harmful narratives away from those that stigmatize reproductive healthcare, abortion, and gender-affirming care.

#CARECourt will only lead to the incarceration of the unhoused, poor, and people with mental health disabilities.

Taking people’s rights away and forcing treatment should never be a solution.

Tell @CAGovernor to stop funding our courts on the backs of low-income Californians.

It takes just 1-minute to tell the Governor it's time to #EndCivilAssessments, the $300 traffic court late fee that disproportionately targets Black and Brown Californians.

No matter what the U.S. Supreme Court decides, we remain committed to the fight to protect and advance a broad vision of reproductive justice that includes everyone. Access to abortion is just one piece of our larger fight to ensure that reproductive rights move beyond abortion access.

To avoid being held accountable, sheriffs ruled Angelo Quinto’s death as “excited delirium” instead of the real cause of death. All families who lost their loved ones to police brutality deserve unbiased medical investigations.

Pass #AB1608 to make coroners offices independent from law enforcement in California.
