Injured Workers Advocates Speak Out Against SB 863 @ Elihu Harris State Office Building – Auditorium
Sep 1 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
Injured workers have been under a vicious corporate insurance attack in California that has prevented them from getting their injuries taken care of in a timely fashion. Governor Brown and his supporters have set up an obstacle course called Independent Medical Reviews that stall getting injuries treated. Workers then have to fight to get medication to deal with the pain that injured workers have. Doctors who subscribe opiates are then blamed for a rise in addiction among California injured workers.

City Counsel Action to Demand Justice for Yuvette Henderson @ city hall | Emeryville | California | United States
In February, Emeryville police killed Yuvette Henderson, a 38-year old Black woman and mother of two after she was assaulted at the Home Depot. It was clear from the different sizes of the bullet holes that multiple weapons, including an AR-15 assault rifle, had been fired at her. It has been more than 6 months and not one official police report on Yuvette’s killing has been made public. The Alameda coroner is unnecessarily withholding the autopsy results of Yuvette’s death, which is key to the family’s ongoing fight for answers … Continued
