SVCR Interest Groups
Elections and Voting Rights
We are focused on supporting legislation that will: increase voter participation, advance voting reforms, maintain or restore fairness in voting, and increase transparency in the electoral process. In addition, we plan to actively engage in registration and Get Out The Vote (GOTV) efforts for progressive candidates at all levels of government, with particular focus on the U.S. House of Representatives.
Support local communities in providing high quality public education such that all children experience an equal opportunity to succeed.
Protect the environment: air, water, animal welfare, climate, justice, health. Keep California an environmental leader.
Health Care, Single Payer
Health Care is a Human Right.
Millions of Americans die early from lack of medical care or go bankrupt trying to pay medical bills. 20 million Americans lack access to the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Some who have coverage are dropping their insurance due to increasing premiums and high deductibles. Meanwhile, insurance and pharmaceutical companies make huge profits.
There is a solution: Universal Health Care with Single Payer financing, similar to what other developed countries have today. Join our group to learn more about SB562, California’s Single Payer bill.
Gun Control, Gun Violence Prevention
Work to develop and promote a powerful case on gun law reform and link it to the other SVCR issues. This includes working on national and local campaigns and ordinances.
Understand and push to fully investigate and address foreign influence on U.S. elections.
Positive Agenda group for discussions of big, bold ideas that can improve the life of most Americans rather than selected few.
Women's Reproductive Rights
Accessible birth control provides economic freedom.
We follow key Women's Reproductive Rights organizations for actions & events and also, legislation at State & National levels. Information on these will be disseminated to SVCR members.
