Call your senators today SB 54, SB 6
Dear community partner,
Last week, the California Values Act, SB 54 (de León), and the Due Process for All Act, SB 6 (Hueso), cleared the Senate Appropriations Committee and are now heading to a vote by the full Senate. The Due Process for All Act (SB 6)would provide access to qualified counsel to immigrants in deportation or removal proceedings, while the California Values Act (SB 54) would ensure that state and local resources are not used to fuel mass deportations, separate families, or spread fear throughout our communities. We need your help to pass these critical bills in the Senate!
CALL YOUR SENATORS to support both SB 54 and SB 6 TODAY:
Hello, my name is _______ and I am calling from _______ (indicate city if you are a constituent) to ask Senator ________ to support an inclusive SB 6, the Due Process for All Act, and a strong SB 54, the California Values Act, which will both be voted on in the Senate floor next week. I urge the Senator be on the right side of history, not on the side of the California Sheriff's shameful collusion with Trump's anti-immigrant agenda. Will the Senator support SB 54 and SB 6?
PROTEST LA SHERIFF MCDONNELL
As we call our Senators to stay committed to the immigrant community in California, we also need to hold Sheriffs accountable for their efforts to kill this bill. If you are in Los Angeles this Wednesday, come out to this community action against Sheriff McDonnell’s opposition to SB 54.
SHARE WITH YOUR NETWORKS As opposition mounts for proposals that aim to protect our communities, we need you to help lead the resistance. We cannot let Trump and his racist administration destroy our communities. Call the State Senators today, and share this email with others in your network. Together we can make these bills a reality!
