Stand Up California
Frequently Asked Questions

What is Stand Up California?

Stand Up California is a grassroots project that connects activists on a county level to work together to ensure a restoration of our rights, as outlined in the U.S. Constitution, the U.S. Bill of Rights and the California Constitution, and the prevention of mandates for government assistance, education or to participate in society.

Stand Up California helps educate local and state elected officials (county boards of supervisors, school boards, city councils, as well as California state assembly members and senators), by providing activists succinct, well-researched materials and talking points, as well as a centralized site for local activists to network and support one another.

Stand Up California also allows likeminded people to come together in their community to share their knowledge, experiences, education, produce, wares and much more.

How do I participate in Stand Up California?

If you agree with Stand Up California’s mission and you want to actively participate in educating on a local level and want to meet likeminded individuals locally, join your local county Stand Up California group.  


Why should I join Stand Up California?

In California, directives are made on a local city, county or state level.  The more local the efforts, the more chance of influencing them.  Even if local officials do not change their positions, they will have been educated and cannot say they don’t know. 

Who can join Stand Up California?

Anyone who agrees with our mission can join a local Stand Up California group.  We ask you only join the group(s) in which you can actively participate in.  

What happens once I sign up for a local county Stand Up California group?

Once you sign up you will be invited to join an email list for your county.  From there you can communicate with other activists in your county.  Stand Up California will send out action alerts to that list, but local community members can also take the lead, such as starting discussion topics, arranging meetings, sharing about local events or exchanging wares.

Why does it take up to 24 hours to be approved to join a local county group?

For security and privacy reasons, Stand Up California does not automatically allow people to join a group.  Our team manually checks each request to ensure it is a real person and not a bot. 


Why is my first and last name required?

Stand Up California requires your first and last name so that when you are sending emails to the group, people can see who you are and that you are a real person.  If you do not enter a valid first and last name you will not be approved to join the group.

Does Stand Up California have community standards?

Stand Up California asks you to be respectful to the community.  We do not tolerate racism, hateful language, or discrimination of any kind.  Stand Up California is built on trust — we want everyone to know they’re communicating with a real person, and therefore require you to use your true identity.  We prohibit any activity that could hurt someone, from physical harm to scams.
