California Legislators: Stand with Women and Children

    1. Sponsored by

      Women's Foundation of California

Women are the backbone of California's families, workforce and economy. Yet over the past three years, California has chosen cuts-only budgets that have shredded programs critical to the health and safety of women and families. Make no mistake: more cuts means destroying people's lives.

Who do your legislators stand with? Women and children, or wealthy corporate interests?

After years of legislators passing tax loopholes that generate corporate profits, the state has a massive deficit. The result? Severe program cuts that risk the lives of women and families.

It’s our lawmakers’ job to come up with revenue solutions, not cuts that come at the expense of women who play by the rules and rely on our state’s social safety net.

You have until June 14 to tell your state senator and assembly member: A temporary tax increase on the wealthy is better than permanent poverty for women and children.

      I'm signing, because everyday I see how women and children in my family, neighborhood and communities are the ones suffering when our government continue to make cuts to programs that directly effect their well being.

      I'm signing this petition because I do not support balancing the budget on the backs of low-income women, children and families. We need to raise revenues by closing corporate tax loopholes, instituting temporary income tax increases and indexing excise taxes on spirits.
