Indivisible Yolo General Meeting TONIGHT 6/26 @ 7pm – don’t miss it!

Please plan to attend and to engage in our annual election of Steering Committee members.

We have a full agenda, starting with the feedback we received from the Member Survey last month. Then we’ll have an update from the Electoral Team on all the planning and networking they’ve been doing to make sure our 2023-24 electoral strategy optimizes our volunteers’ voter outreach efforts to win back the House, expand the Senate majority and retain the White House. Voter registration, canvassing, phone banking, texting… We’ll also have brief updates on the advocacy work underway at the State, Local and Federal level.

Then we will ask all eligible Members to vote on our slate of Steering Committee Members to re-elect Peggy Bernardy and Shaunese Lambel and elect Chris Craig-Veit and Vera Sandronski, all for a one-year term. The vote will be via Zoom, so you will need to be present to vote.

You can get the Zoom link by registering on Mobilize.

Thanks all!


Saturday was the one year anniversary of SCOTUS’ decision overturning Roe undermining abortion rights and access. Every day since that decision, the harm has multiplied. Please call to ask our Senators to co-sponsor the Judiciary Act of 2023: 


Example call script (your own words are best!):
Please don’t appeal to us, the voters, to fix the problem of the MAGA judges destroying the integrity of our Supreme Court. We voted for a fair Court, but our will was denied when both President Obama’s and President Biden’s picks were stolen from them, contributing to an unjust and unrepresentative Court that is wreaking havoc on our democracy and on our basic human rights, including the right to have an abortion.  
I voted for you to represent me – now, not at some point in the future. I am calling on you to co-sponsor the Judiciary Act of 2023, which will rebalance the Court by adding four seats for a Supreme Court of 13: a level commensurate with the expansion of the federal judiciary.

Call Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry: support fossil fuel divestment- SB 252

After over a year of climate activist work from CASS, FossilFree CA, Th!rdAct and a host of others, SB 252 passed in the CA Senate and is now moving through committee in the Assembly.  But last year, it never got a final vote – a committee chair tabled it; we can’t let that happen again.
While public support is at an all time high — the LA Times Editorial Board recently endorsed this legislation!— Assemblymembers are still deciding their positions and need to hear from their constituents (us)!    

Our friends at Th!rdAct have made it super simple to write to your Assembly Member here using their tool.

Then call Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry and say:

(Your own words are best): I am calling today to ask the Assemblymember to publicly support SB 252 California’s Fossil Fuel Divestment Bill and make every effort to ensure that Assemblywoman Tina McKinnor, chair of the Public Employment and Retirement Committee, sees it through committee and that it gets to the floor for a vote.

Stand with fast-food workers, franchisees and demand corporate accountability

On Wednesday, June 28, the California Senate Labor Committee will hear AB 1228, the Fast Food Corporate Franchisor Responsibility Act. This legislation will improve conditions across the state’s fast-food restaurants by ensuring global fast-food corporations share liability for health and safety violations at franchise locations. Currently, California fast-food workers and franchisees lack adequate power and protections necessary to hold global fast-food companies accountable. The Fast Food Corporate Franchisor Responsibility Act aims to protect workers from rampant labor violations and support local business by ending corporations’ ability to exploit the franchise system that has created so many jobs in our communities.

What you can do to support AB 1228:

Come to the Committee Hearing: Wednesday June 28, 9:30 a.m. at 1021 O Street, Room 2200 in Sacramento to express your support for fast food workers and franchisees. Write us at if you’d like to carpool.
Make a call to the Committee Hearing to voice your “me too” support: On Wednesday, call the Committee’s teleconference line at the phone number posted here (the number will become available at this website Tuesday night):
