Ethnic Studies Now

Thank you for making calls and sending emails. So far we have been able to send 600+ emails and 200+ calls but I believe we can do better! Can you send another email and make another phone call? It's easy to do, just…. 
call: (916) 623-4866Tell Governor Brown to take a stand and support Ethnic Studies. California is NOT Arizona. Use/Share this ESN number so we can keep track of how many people call. Then press "1" for English, and "4" to speak with a rep. Say you want the Governor to sign AB 101 into law. If you get voicemail, it means the Governor's line is busy, so just keep calling back. There are a lot of bills on the Governor's desk, so a lot of calls being made.
2. Email Governor Brown (there shouldn't be any more bouncing, as we removed the cc to the Gov's staffer whose box was full):
3. Letters to the Editor
Please also consider writing a Letter to the Editor to one of the following newspapers about the importance of AB 101 and Ethnic Studies. You can use the email to the Governor as an example. Please let us know if the article is published. How to submit a Letter to the Editor:

Thank you to all who have submitted an Op Ed to local newspapers in support of AB 101 Ethnic Studies. Here are a few that have been continuing the pressure:
