Call State Sen. Bill Dodd and urge him to end pretextual traffic stops (May be voted on this week!):
Example call script (your own words are best!):
Hello, I’m a member of Indivisible Yolo and I’m calling to ask Senator Dodd to support SB 50. Pretextual stops inflict devastating harm on Californians of color—including dehumanization, degraded public health, economic extraction through fees and fines, physical violence through uses of force, and devaluation of life. SB 50 will help protect Californians of color from unnecessary harm and help ensure that public dollars dedicated to community safety are being used resourcefully. I urge your support.
Call Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry in support of two bills (may be voted on this week!)
Assm. Aguiar-Curry: (530) 757-1034 (Davis) (916) 319-2004 (Sacramento) emailSample Call Script:
Hello, my name is [YOUR NAME]. I’m a constituent of Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry and my zip code is [zip code].
I’m calling to ask Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry to support AB 742, which restricts law enforcement’s weaponization of canine attacks against unarmed people. These attacks have frequently led to permanent disfigurement and even death, have injured babies and innocent bystanders, and are used vastly disproportionately against people of color. Nationwide, more than 3,500 people injured by police canines need emergency medical treatment each year. In the past 2 years in California, police dogs have seriously injured more people than tasers or batons. Yet there are state or national rules governing their use. I support AB 742’s restrictions on inappropriate use of police dogs, and hope Assm. Aguiar-Curry will too.
I’m also asking Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry to support AB 93, which helps curb racially biased policing and protect people from unnecessary interactions with police. Baseless searches disproportionately impact Black, Latinx, and multiracial people. AB 93 will help curb racially biased policing and protect people from unnecessary interactions with police by prohibiting consent searches that are not based on any threat to public safety. With AB 93, police will not be able to pursue these searches without justifiable cause or evidence.
Come to an In Person Fundraiser for Michael Feggans
We’re joining Sister District Yolo in co-sponsoring this important (and fun!) fundraiser. Share cool drinks on a hot afternoon while we listen to MICHAEL FEGGANS, the progressive candidate running in a key swing district in Virginia. If he wins, it’s likely the state legislature will flip blue. This is a district that the conservative candidate won by just 112 votes in 2021. Abortion rights, public education, gun safety, and environmental protections are all at stake. Here are the steps to registration:
