Reform California is fighting back against state’s extreme and misguided policies

Reform California is a 527 political action committee that is dedicated to holding state and local governments accountable. This is achieved by launching its own campaigns, including filing and passing numerous citizen ballot initiatives seeking government reform; supporting other organizations and candidates who are reform-minded; and offering an alternative to liberal news by doing research and providing factual news stories so the public can know the truth about what’s happening in our state.

Now the state’s fastest growing grassroots organization, Reform California is leading a number of campaigns against policies that are costing taxpayers and hurting working families in our state, such as stopping the tax hikes, mileage tax and the natural gas ban; restoring public safety; ending homelessness; school board, pension and ballot title reform; and election integrity.

To view all of Reform California’s current campaigns, visit, where you can read the details and sign a petition for support if available and if you would like to do so.
