Call our state congressmembers; Final stretch to support Cynthia Rodriguez for June 7th election
This week we’re continuing our work to elect Cynthia Rodriguez as District Attorney. We need a progressive DA willing to tackle racial bias in our criminal justice system!
We’re also in the last days of the state legislative session. We’ve got one victory to share- a regressive bill that would have locked up people with substance use disorders has failed for this session. Thank you to all the Indivisible Yolo members who fought against the now defunct AB 1928!
We still have some priority bills we want our state congressional members to get passed. We’re asking Sen. Dodd to support SB 1173- divestment from fossil fuels in public retirement systems. And we’re calling Assm. Aguiar-Curry to ask her to support AB 2632, which will put more humane limits on the use of solitary confinement in California.
And as always: to join one of our Indivisible Yolo committees and to see where you can volunteer, Sign up to #DoTheWork and fill out this quick interest form so we can connect with you!
