When we fight we win!
SEIU 721 represents public employees in dozens of cities from Los Angeles to Orange County. Our members work hard everyday to keep parks clean, streets paved, traffic moving, and to keep their cities safe and running smoothly.
On Thursday, March 23rd, SEIU 721 members are taking the day off for a Day of Action to protect jobs and health care.
Because we put the pressure on, Congressman Steve Knight will hold a town hall on Saturday, March 4th at the Chimbole Cultural Center in Palmdale!
Ed Royce and Steve Knight refuse to meet with us, so we have to take our stories to their doorsteps.
Congressmen Royce and Knight voted to defund and repeal our country's healthcare system without a plan to replace it. This means all of us are going to pay more for fewer benefits and less coverage.
Because Congressmen Royce and Knight voted to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, 5 million in California will lose health coverage, and 334,000 in the Golden State will lose jobs.
With no coverage but the emergency room, every year, 43,956 Americans will die.
Tuesday, February 14th is National Call-In Day! Please join us in demanding that Congress put people before politics.
Donald Trump attacked us when he nominated Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.
In the words of SEIU International President, Mary Kay Henry, "this is a step backwards for every American who wants a good job, the opportunity for a better life for their family, and a real voice in our economy and democracy."
If Gorsuch is confirmed, the Supreme Court will rule against the communities we serve by gutting the public sector, silencing worker voice, and doing away with collective bargaining.
Click here to tell Senators Diane Feinstein and Kamala Harris to stop Gorsuch!
Come join President Bob Schoonover and fellow SEIU members in interviewing candidates for endorsement.
You will also have an opportunity to briefly hear from City incumbents: Mike Feuer, Ron S. Galperin, Bob Blumenfield, Curren D. Price, Jr., Mike Bonin, Mitch O'Farrell, and Joe Buscaino.

MASSIVE #Fight4Health LOS ANGELES RALLY DEFENDS HEALTH CARE FOR
MILLIONS OF CALIFORNIANS WHO ARE TARGETS OF TRUMP AND GOP CONGRESS
Los Angeles - Hundreds of Los Angeles-area health care workers, nurses, advocates, patients, and seniors were joined Tuesday by Senate President pro Tempore Kevin de León and Senate Health Committee Chairman Ed Hernandez to launch a massive effort to protect Californians' access to affordable health care. Their action came as the Trump Administration and Republican-led Congress are launching an all-out assault on health security for millions of Americans, with plans to gut the Medicare guarantee for seniors and decimate the Affordable Care Act and Medi-Cal. Health advocates promised to fight attacks on health care that that would force millions of Californians back into the ranks of the uninsured.
There's too much at stake for our members and our communities to not be leading advocates for a better California. When we fight together, we win for the Golden State.
