Social Workers Dig Deep to Find Child Placement Solutions


Every year in Los Angeles County thousands of children are left in a lurch, waiting to be placed with a loving family. Sometimes social workers get 20, 30, or 40 rejections before they can place a child. We are in a placement crisis. The SEIU 721 Placement Forum on March 25th brought social workers together from across Southern California to tackle this immense problem.

We won a tremendous victory by championing quality, affordable healthcare for all Americans!

When tens of millions were threatened with the loss of their healthcare coverage, hundreds of thousands were threatened with the loss of their jobs, and tens of thousands were threatened with the loss of their lives, we fought back!

When we fight we win!

Devastated - Statement on Judge's Decision to Allow Criminal Trial for L.A. County Social Workers


Like all of you, we were devastated by the death of Gabriel Fernandez, who was abused and murdered by his parents while in the L.A. County DCFS child welfare system. For years our union has advocated tirelessly for reforms that could have helped prevent this tragedy.

It's time to extend whistleblower protections to nurses.

On March 28 we're going to Sacramento to extend whistleblower protections to nurses.

We refuse to allow anyone to be put in the position of having to choose between the safety of their patients and their job!

Processions & Vigils to Protect Healthcare in Lancaster & Fullerton

In a peaceful demonstration, concerned patients, providers and community members walked from 38th St W and Paddock Way, to Knight's Lancaster home, and from Hiltscher Park to Royce's Fullerton home, on Thursday evening, to deliver a clear message to the Congressmen about the harm they have wrought.

Emergency Processions & Vigils in Fullerton & Lancaster on February 23

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.

National Call-In Day: Take Action February 14th

Tuesday, February 14th is National Call-In Day! Please join us in demanding that Congress put people before politics. 

Anti-worker. Anti-union. Pro-corporation. Pro-1%. Gorsuch is wrong for the Supreme Court, and wrong for America!

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!
