Lobby Day in Sacramento to Empower Voters
First, join California StateStrong and Empower California Voters Coalition for a Lobby Day in Sacramento on May 24!
Empower California Voters Coalition is the coalition advocating for AB 421: a bill that would reform the referendum process. This important bill addresses the fact that wealthy corporations have captured the referendum process to repeal progressive laws passed by the California Legislature. Learn more about the coalition and bill here! The ECV Coalition is holding a lobby day on May 24 at the Capitol. The full day is 9-4, but you can come for part of it! We hope to see you – sign up here.
Then, join our Indivisible Sacramento allies at 4:30 – at the same location!

Example call script (your own words are best!):
Hi, my name is [your name] and my zip code is [zip code]. I’m a voter and a constituent of [Sen. Feinstein/Sen. Padilla/Rep. Thompson/Rep. Matsui]. I’m calling to thank the [Senator/Representative] for rejecting MAGA efforts to create a crisis and sink our economy if we don’t give in to their demands. MAGA extremists voted to default on the national debt unless we eliminate 108,000 teachers’ jobs, taking away educational support for 32 million kids. And they demanded cuts to Medicaid that would put the healthcare of 21 million people in jeopardy, including seniors in nursing homes and children with disabilities. Thank you for rejecting their threats to default on the national debt, and please stay strong.
