“In our personal ambitions we are individualists. But in our seeking for economic and political progress as a nation, we all go up or else all go down as one people.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt
Speak Out in Sacramento May 2-3
From May 2-3, we’re taking a bus up to Sacramento to educate legislators face-to-face about the cruel summer and advocate for AB 621. You need to be there.
The California Assembly Committee on Public Employees, Retirement and Social Security voted to pass Assembly Bill 621 on Wednesday, March 29. It’s up to us to keep the bill alive and moving in the legislature. This means putting it on the radar of every legislator who will make a yes or no decision on AB 621. We need to make them aware of the human impact of their vote.
Our next action will be a turnaround trip to Sacramento from Tuesday to Wednesday, May 2-3. Members will talk directly to legislators and their staff about the financial struggles we face in the summer and how AB 621 will fix this injustice. This is how we’ll gain support for the bill.
