Government for the People, not Corporations

Alison is ready to continue the political revolution as California's next Senator.  She understands that the promise of California and the American dream should belong to everyone, not just the wealthy and well-connected. People all across our state are rising up against corruption and the billionaires and politicians who take our votes and lives for granted. California is one of the most progressive, diverse states in the nation. We deserve leaders who understand the struggles of working people and makes sure government works for them.

"We can either be a democracy that's led by the people, or we can continue selling our government to the highest bidder, but we can't do both." - Alison Hartson

In the wealthiest nation in the world, everyone should be able to prosper.

The political establishment has monopolized our wealth and power for long enough. The American people are ready for a new movement to take on their corruption and greed. We can't expect change from establishment politicians like Dianne Feinstein who created this corrupt system. Alison is part of a national movement to create a democracy that works for all of us.

California deserves a working class leader

Alison Hartson has spent her life in the service of others.  For ten years she served as a high school teacher in the working-class community of Garden Grove, CA. She saw up close how the corrupting influence of money in politics made two systems in this country: one for the rich, and one for everyone else. Seeing this inspired her to begin volunteering for WolfPac, an organization dedicated to passing a constitutional amendment to end corruption. As a volunteer, Alison organized over 1,000 people in California to pass AJR-1, a resolution in support of the constitutional amendment to end corruption in politics. She went on to be the National Director of WolfPac, passing this resolution in four other states.

Alison faces the issues that the people of California face every day.  She has a proven track record of leadership and winning when she fights.  And you know she will fight for people, not corporations, because she has vowed not to take a single dime of PAC money.  At this difficult moment for our nation, she is stepping up to provide a courageous voice for the working people of California.

What We Can Achieve Together

End Corruption

Super PACs should be banned, private donations to politicians and campaigns should be banned, and a clean public financing system should be implemented to end the takeover of our government by corporations and billionaires. Americans deserve free and fair elections — free from the corruption of big money donors. The Supreme Court has effectively legalized bribery. It’s time for an Article 5 convention to take our democracy back from the brink of oligarchy.

Create Medicare For All

The United States should catch up to every other modern nation and implement a single-payer, medicare-for-all system. There’s no reason we can’t be #1 in the world instead of #37. It’s time to end the destruction of American healthcare by rapacious, price gouging, for-profit, private health insurance middlemen.

Create A Just Justice System

It's time to end our for-profit criminal justice system by ending prison labor, private prisons and detention centers, cash bail systems, and all the other ways our criminal justice system profits off the vulnerable.

Create free public higher education

In America, every child deserves a chance to succeed. A college or trade school education should be a right, not a privilege. Educating the citizenry of a nation pays dividends in the long run, with the economy getting back much more than is initially put in. Crushing student debt for higher education would no longer burden young men and women trying to improve their lives through hard work. We should strive to have the best education system in the world.

Raise the Minimum Wage to $15 / hr

$15 / hr isn't even enough everywhere, but it should be a baseline. And yes, it needs to be tied to inflation. A living wage is a basic human right. We should not tolerate an economic system that requires people to live in poverty. It's also time to strengthen unions so we don't lose all the labor rights we fight so hard to achieve.
