Californians - Our Future is at Stake


Their Future is at Stake

The Reality
In the last two years, more than $17 billion was cut from schools and colleges.
 Class sizes have skyrocketed.
 Entire art, music and vocational education programs were eliminated.
 More than 16,000 educators were laid off.
 Tuition fees have increased more than 30%, shutting thousands of students out of college.
And large California corporations enjoye more than $2 billion in annual tax breaks.
This year - in the wake of all these cuts--our students, schools and communities are being threatened again.  At my daughter's middle school there are threats to cut out Music and P.E.  Two crucial classes in the development of our children.  Not to mention the extra curriculum activities like basketball, track and band.  Not to mention the fact that as parents we now supply the majority of supplies - pencils, etc. used by Teachers.

We can't let that happen again.


We need your help in this urgent effort to speak out about the painful effects cuts are having on our students, schools and communities.

Get the Lead Out ...of Your Lipstick!

The latest report that many common lipsticks brands contain detectable levels of lead is enough to turn your beautiful smile into a frown and leave you wondering the true cost of beauty.

A Poison Pucker
In a 2007 issue of the Journal of Cosmetic Science , U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) scientists reported that all of the 20 lipsticks it tested contained lead, a proven neurotoxin that occurs naturally in the environment, at levels ranging from 0.09 parts per million (ppm) to 3.06 ppm. These results build on two previous studies, one from Health Canada and another from the U.S.-based Campaign for Safe Cosmetics (CSC), a national coalition of not-for-profit organizations working to improve the safety of personal care products.
"There are many others sources of lead exposure, which is why we don't need to also be exposed to lead through products we smear on our lips," says Stacy Malkan, co-founded of the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics (CSC) and author of Not Just a Pretty Face: The Ugly Side of the Beauty Industry (New Society).
You might be thinking – surely, a little lead is worth it to have the perfect  lips. It depends on who you ask.  Well, one study estimates that the average woman consumes about
