Weekly Update – 4/15/19
It’s time again for our monthly meeting. Wednesday evening we’ll be at Sierra2 Center again. This month we are pleased to welcome a guest speaker from the Citizen’s Climate Lobby. The meeting starts at 7:00 p.m., and just like always, we’ll be in Room 10 at Sierra2. The address is 2791 24th Street. See you there!
Can you spare some time next week? There are a couple of important state legislative committee hearings coming up, and we could use some volunteers to show up and support Indivisible’s top bills.
Wednesday, April 23rd at 8:30 a.m., the Senate Committee on Public Safety will be hearing bill SB47, which requires disclosure of funding sources for ballot initiative campaigns. The hearing starts at 8:30 in Room 3191. Also that day (we do not have the start time yet), the Committee on Natural Resources and Water will consider SB200, which establishes a right for every Californian to clean, affordable, and accessible drinking water. Both bills are supported by Indivisible Sacramento and California State Strong.
Thursday, April 24th at 9:00 a.m., the Senate Committee on Government and Finance will consider SB50, which is Senator Scott Wiener’s bill to boost affordable housing availability near public transit lines. That hearing will be held in Room 112 (though it may be moved to Room 3191, depending on room availability).
If you’re interested in coming out to support a bill, but you’re not sure what to do, please send an e-mail to this address. We’ll be happy to walk you through the process and answer any questions you may have.
Voter Registration Training
Would you like to be trained on how to register voters in advance of the 2020 election? The League of Women Voters is hosting a training on Thursday, April 25th from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the Laguna/Valley Hi branch of the Sacramento Public Library. The address is 7400 Imagination Pkwy in Sacramento.
If you can make it, please RSVP to Claudiobon16@gmail.com.
Letters and Postcards
Everyone loves writing postcards to voters. If you find yourself missing last year’s postcard parties, you’ll want to join in the Sunday postcard campaign sponsored by Sacramento Mighty Oaks. Come on down to the County Democratic headquarters (1033 S Street) from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. on every Sunday this month. You can write postcards to help elect Dems to state legislatures this year!
If you would prefer to work from home, here is another option for you. Swing Left is organizing a letter writing campaign to reach out and register potential voters. You can find the details here.
Finally, a reminder that if you donate to Indivisible Sacramento through our Act Blue pagein April, the national Indivisible organization will match your donation.
