In addition to reaching out 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 that you can use to call or email your mayor, city councilmembers, state senators and assemblymembers, and other officials for which there’s a relevant call to action.

“Hi. My name is ___, my zip code is ___, and I’m with Indivisible East Bay. I don’t need a response.”

Kevin de Leon, State Senate President Pro Tempore (916) 651-4024
Ricardo Lara, Chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee (916) 651-4033

I’m calling to urge you to give the California Desert Protection Act, AB 1000, a floor vote. It’s critical that state agencies which have the local expertise have a say in projects that seek to extract water resources that sustain our protected lands and habitats.  We can’t let the Trump Administration’s allies at the Cadiz Project bleed dry (for profit) a fragile ecosystem.

NOTE: Even though these are not our representatives they do hold statewide power in the legislature and do have statewide ambitions so they do care what you think about this issue.

The state legislature must pass a robust version of SB 54, the California Values Act. Please do not buckle under pressure from the California State Sheriffs’ association, but instead support a strong SB 54.
