All of CURB’s sponsored bills, including AB 512, will be heard in the Senate and Assembly Public Safety Committees next week on April 7th. We are working hard to get them passed, but we need your support – by attendance or tweets – in the process!
Please join us at the State Capitol on April 7th to lend your support for:
AB 512: Room 126 at 9 am
SB 224: Room 4203 at 9:30 am
SB 219: Room 4203 at 9:30 am
If you can’t make it out, you can watch the hearings via Cal Channel here.
As we gear up for our trip to the State Capitol, where we will ensure the community’s demands are heard, we still need your voice at home to amplify the message. Be sure to look out for ways to engage on social media on Monday, April 6th.
