Weekly Update – 7/8/19
Indivisible exists to fight back against the Trump Administration. We are here to make sure our Members of Congress hold him accountable for his crimes, from the blatant financial corruption to the unspeakable cruelty he is inflicting on immigrant children. Representative Rashida Tlaib is doing just that by introducing a resolution calling for the President to be impeached, and we need to voice our support for it. Please call your Member of Congress and urge them to support HR 257. Indivisible has some information and a call script if you would like to read more.

Bills at the Capitol

It’s another big week for state legislation at the Capitol. A number of bills that Indivisible and State Strong support will be discussed in committee hearings. If you have time to come downtown during the day, we could use some voices to speak up. All you have to do is wait for the bill to be discussed, and then during public comment period, get in line, then state your name, say you’re representing Indivisible Sacramento, and tell them you support the bill. Here are the big ones this week:

AB32 – Ban on for-profit prisons. Public Safety Committee, Room 3191, 9:00 a.m.
AB1482 – Restriction on raising rents. Senate Judiciary Committee, Room TBD, 1:30 p.m.

AB1611 – Prevents surprise emergency room bills. Senate Health Committee, Room 4203, 1:30 p.m.

Lights for Liberty

Do you want to show support for the refugees who have been tortured and mistreated by the Administration? This Friday people across America will show up for the Lights for Liberty vigil. Please come out if you can. The biggest local event is at the Yuba County jail at 7:30 p.mPlease visit the event’s Facebook page for details, including information about carpools. For those who cannot make it to Yuba County, there is a smaller event being planned in Sacramento, but the organizers strongly encourage people to attend the one at the Yuba jail if possible.

Next Meeting

Our next meeting is Wednesday the 17th. We’re pleased to welcome Colleen McCarty, Regional Director of Swing Left, as we prepare for a year of action. Not only are there elections to win in 2020, there are some important ones this year as well, as many states will be electing legislators who will help control redistricting. We should be back in our normal spot, Room 10 at Sierra2 Center for the Arts and Community, 2791 24th Street. Meeting starts at 7:00 p.m.
