Since shelter in place began, we have met with Feinstein staff twice and Harris staff once. We also met with Rep. Lee’s staff and have been in contact with Reps. DeSaulnier and Swalwell’s staff.
The good thing about meeting online is that we are easily able to speak with legislative staff in DC and senior state staff from LA and SF.
We have mostly discussed the various COVID relief bills and oversight of the administration’s handling of these crises. At our most recent meeting, with Sen. Harris’ state director, deputy state director, and district director, we also discussed her Justice in Policing Act, and other ways we want the federal government to step in and address police violence and criminal justice inequities.
Virtual meetings are definitely no real substitute for going to the office in person, but, as we’ve found for many of our activities, it does make our meetings accessible to new people, and we hope to continue to have the occasional video conference, even after we’ve gone back to in-person meetings.
