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.

I’m calling to urge you to OPPOSE AB398. Not only would the bill make cap-and-trade worse, but the way it’s being rushed through to committee is a black eye on our state’s legislative integrity. Instead I want you to SUPPORT an effective and equitable upgrade to cap-and-trade, like SB775.

Thank you for your time.

Oakland City Councilmember Lynette Gibson-McElhaney (District 3)

Thank you for sponsoring an ordinance to require OPD officers to adhere to state and local standards when participating in federal task forces. We cannot let federal agencies like ICE dictate how our police department operates.

Thank you for your time.
