Along with our friends like Equality California and Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California, SEIU California represents people who rely heavily on prescription drugs. We worked hard last year to ensure that pricing is transparent – and we are all grateful that we have an attorney general who continues to stand up to Big Pharma.
Attorney General Xavier Becerra has relentlessly fought threats to our public health in California.
He has taken on Big Pharma to fight price gouging that puts critical drugs out of reach for sick patients.
He has successfully forced Donald Trump to back down on numerous policies that would let pollution enter our air and water.
He’s leading the fight in court to keep healthcare affordable and accessible.
And he’s tackling opioid abuse, pursuing pharmaceutical manufacturers and opioid distributors who’ve engaged in unlawful practices in the marketing, sale, and distribution of opioids.
Xavier’s always about getting it right to protect public health.
As a Congressman, he showed us that routinely.
He helped draft the Affordable Care Act, ensuring our seniors received the correct Medicare reimbursements.
And he voted to make opioid treatment and services more accessible.
The way I see it, public health is key to public safety, especially California’s working families.
