The Organizer of El Cerrito Progressives received the following appreciative email, along with its plea for support of CA Values Act SB54.
“Because of your support, we have been able to advance the strongest pro-immigrant legislation in the nation, the CA Values Act (SB54). California is leading the nation in protecting our immigrant community and ensuring that our state resources are not being used for Trump’s hateful deportation machine.
NOW, WE NEED YOUR HELP! While the bill has successfully been voted out of the CA Senate, it will now be heard by the Assembly Public Safety Committee next week. We must manifest the widespread support behind this bill in order to ensure that California Sheriffs, as well as racist and nativist groups do not prevail in their attack against the protections that this bill would create.
WHAT: Mobilization for the Assembly Public Safety Committee Hearing and Petition Delivery to Governor Brown in support of CA Values Act
WHEN: Tuesday, June 13th, 2017 from 8AM – 3PM
WHERE: Gathering at the Sacramento State Capitol (1315 10th St, Sacramento) North Steps. Hearing to take Place in room # 126.
If you can be there, please register at: bit.ly/cavalueshearing
**We will be providing limited travel stipends on a first come first serve basis, depending on need.**
If you cannot make it to Sacramento on Tuesday you can still support by signing our petition: bit.ly/valuesactsb54
Let’s continue fighting for CA Values!
