State Crunch Time Call-in Week: May 20-24

The last two weeks of May are an exciting time in the California legislature — hundreds of bills will face a floor vote before the crossover deadline on May 31!

This means ALL of our legislators will be voting on critical policies that will affect the lives of all Californians. They need to hear from us. We’re planning to flood their offices with calls the week of May 20th to let them know how we want them to vote on the Indivisible CA statewide priorities!

If we coordinate our calls on the same day, we are more likely to have a bigger impact so we’re planning to call about a different bill each day. We have everything you need in this toolkit including a call script and sample social messaging! Please get the word out to your group and use our patch through number so we can track how many calls we make!

Note: There is no need to  call the cosponsors listed as they already support!
