Last Day of Legislative Session – Just Two More Short Calls Needed NOW

11 Sep

Below is an action alert from United Cerebral Palsey and The Arc of California.

PLEASE–Make two phone calls today. Call your state senator and assembly member.
For those who aren’t sure who their state senator or assemblymember is or what their Capitol numbers are, click here.

Details below.

Dear Friends,

The statewide campaign of calling the 26 key legislators was fantastically successful yesterday. We definitely have their attention!

But for today and tonight — the last day of session — we need to switch tactics. Instead of calling the 26, everyone needs to call their own state senator and assemblymember. Every member of the Legislature needs to get calls from his or her own voters NOW!

The message should be short and sweet, such as:

– Give them your name and address so they know you live in the district they represent.
– Thank them for all their support in the past, but tell them we need them more than ever TODAY. Our developmental services system is collapsing and we are desperate!

Call their Capitol offices, not their local district offices. And don’t please don’t call a legislator’s personal cell phone unless you know them very, very well.

For those who aren’t sure who their state senator or assemblymember is or what their Capitol numbers are, click here.

And here’s an encouraging editorial from today’s Sacramento Bee.

Thank you for your advocacy – again today!

    I did my calls yesterday to the big list and just to my elected officials today. . Although I think Jerry Hill and Kevin Mullin were on the right side anyway.
