In addition to reaching out to our Members of Congress at the Federal level, it’s important to engage with our state and local authorities. This page provides regularly-updated scripts to call or email state senators and assembly-members, your mayor or city council-members, and other officials for whom there’s a relevant call to action.

Every Vote Must Be Counted

Call or email Governor Jerry Brown to urge him to veto AB 840, which was intended to ensure a thorough vote audit but was gutted by last-minute amendments exempting millions of ballots from a manual tally.

Governor Jerry Brown: 

“Governor Brown, my name is ___, my zip code is ___, and I’m with Indivisible East Bay. I don’t need a response. Please veto AB 840. It was radically amended on August 24, months after it left the Assembly and Senate Election Committees. Please protect our election audits, millions of vote by mail ballots must remain part of the 1% audit.”

Tell CalPERS to Divest from TrumpSoho

The California Public Employees’ Retirement System, CalPERS, is a government agency that manages retirement benefits for over a million and a half state employees, retirees, and their families. That management includes investment in a real estate fund that transfers millions of dollars to the Trump Organization to manage the TrumpSoHo in NYC. Too few Californians are complaining that a state agency is funding the current occupant of the White House (and probably violating the Consitution), so CalPERS is continuing to line 45’s pockets. Let’s change that! Visit cadivesttrump.org to sign the petition and prepare a letter to the editor.
