What Is Reform CA?

Reform CA is a joint campaign of California Reform Movement to act powerfully together for justice in our state. As a project of the all the social justice initiatives of the Reform Movement (the Peace and Justice Committee of the CCAR, the Religious Action Center, and Just Congregations) we feel called to come together as a Movement to play a role in repairing the California dream. We join with one another to address systemic issues of injustice that hurt our families and our brothers and sisters across lines of race, class, and faith.

Justice has been at the foundation of our Movement since its inception, and we proudly stand on the shoulders of the giants of justice who came before us. Acting together, we are partners to one another, as we seek to build a California that is just, compassionate, thriving, and inspiring. Join our email list today!

Victory for the TRUST Act!

What is the TRUST Act?
In 2013, we sought compassionate and fair laws for our immigrant brothers and sisters who call California home. The TRUST Act, which passed in October 2013, will strengthen and protect the relationship between California's undocumented immigrant community and law enforcement, creating more secure communities. Learn more about the TRUST Act.

More than 100 Reform rabbis and cantors throughout California signed our letter to Governor Jerry Brown. This letter was hand-delivered to the Governor during our advocacy visits in September.
