Wall Street, oil companies, and giant corporations continue to spend billions to buy political power in both major parties (especially because of the top two primary law), which then act to reduce consumer protections, give out corporate subsidies, and under-tax corporations. With these corporations, hedge funds, and real estate developers spend more and more in each election to support issues and candidates that share their vision of profits over people meaning our communities are under attack in every election!
But, we have proven that when we are engaged and organized, not only can we defeat their attacks but we can pass strong policies that benefit our communities! That is why ACCE Action is part of the Million Voters Project (MVP) - an unprecedented collaboration of California’s strongest community-based networks organizing to expand California’s electorate. We are uniting all of California - low income families, parents, young people, Black, Latino and Asian Pacific Islander communities, immigrants and refugees, people of faith, and the formerly incarcerated - to build our political power as the new California majority.
In 2018 alone, ACCE contacted 67259 voters during the general election to advance our social, economic and racial agenda at the ballot.
