State Strong Yolo Kickoff this Wednesday Feb. 1
Please join us for the 2023 Kickoff Meeting for State Strong Yolo – progressive advocacy at the State Capitol! State Strong Yolo is the state legislative advocacy team for Indivisible Yolo. Across the nation, State Capitols are incubators for new laws and state laws have the biggest impact on people’s lives. With a Democratic supermajority in Sacramento, our expectations are high and we will insist on progressive accomplishments in 2023. Bring your ideas for state legislation. We will discuss possible legislation and how we will advocate along with the statewide coalition of Indivisible groups in 2023. The meeting will include optional training sessions for researching and monitoring state legislation as well as using the Indivisible Yolo Slack platform for communications. Everyone interested in promoting progressive policies is welcome!
The State Strong Yolo Kickoff meeting will be online Wednesday, Feb. 1, 7-8:30pm PST.

Example call script (your own words are best!):
Hi, my name is [your name] and my zip code is [zip code]. I am asking you to lift the debt ceiling using a discharge motion in the House. We can’t let Republicans use the economy as a hostage to achieve their dream of gutting Social Security and Medicare. The [Senator/Representative] must protect our nation by raising the debt ceiling now, because discharge petitions take time and time is running out. Will the [Senator/Representative] act now to raise the debt ceiling? Yes or no?
