100 Days of Corporate Giveaways

100-days-of-corp-giveaways.jpg

President Trump's first 100 days in office have shocked America. During his campaign, Russian intelligence operatives reportedly manipulated Donald Trump's lack of knowledge and experience to further their nation's policy objectives. Now, some of the country's biggest corporations and their lobbyists are exploiting the same weaknesses to roll back laws and regulations they don't like, cut their own taxes and, in some cases, use the Office of the President to enrich themselves -- all at the expense of ordinary working people and taxpayers.

SEIU Members Tell Rep. Knight "Your Votes Are Killing Us"

SEIU 1000 member Doryce Caballero joins the protest at Rep. Steve Knight's office in Santa Clarita.

U.S. Congressman Steve Knight joined every other GOP congressperson in 
California today to vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and put 24 million Americans lives in jeopardy.

SEIU members, community and advocacy groups went to Rep. Knight's office in Santa Clarita, California to tell him that it is both immoral and unjust to tear away at our nation's healthcare safety net in order to provide hefty tax cuts for the rich. 

The Trumpcare bill will also have disastrous effects on those with pre-existing conditions and weaken women's health services across the country. Now it's up to the Senate to stop Trumpcare in its tracks.

Congress is rushing a vote on the AHCA (aka Trumpcare): Call 1-866- 426-2631 to demand a "NO" vote right away!

Don't wait until it is too late! Call 1-866-426-2631 to demand Congress vote "NO on the AHCA right away!

Millions will lose their health coverage and hundreds of thousands will lose their jobs if it passes. Those with pre-existing conditions, including those who donate an organ or bone marrow to save someone else's life, will pay more. Seniors will pay more. And those of us with employer provided coverage will pay more out of pocket. Even kids and Americans with disabilities will pay the price! None of us has any guarantees that we will get our health coverage back if we ever lose it, for any reason.

Social Workers Dig Deep to Find Child Placement Solutions

social-worker-group-photo-470-236.jpg

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!
