SB252 will likely be on the senate floor today, May 25th, 2023! We are right at about 21 votes - meaning we need to keep every "aye" vote in the face of fossil fuel and CalSTRS/CalPERS counter lobbying! We know that they have been out working the Senators offices all week.
We need to get as many calls/emails as possible to push these last senators' aye votes:
Senator Glazer (East Bay - Antioch, Walnut Creek, Concord, Livermore, Brentwood)
Senator Archuleta (LA County / Orange - including Whittier)
Senator Menjivar (N of LA San Fernando/Burbank)
Senator Roth (E of LA - Riverside, Corona, Moreno Valley)
Senator Rubio (LA County Monte, Covina, Ontario)
Can you take 2 minutes to make a call or email your Senator urging their AYE vote on SB252? And then share on social media, especially if you know people in those priority areas!
Many youth in YVA have been working on the Divest CalSTRS campaign for YEARS -- trying to get CA public employees, including teachers, to stop investing in the destructive and unjust fossil fuel industry. This is a battle for life over death, as you can hear in testimony here. It's a battle so many young people have stepped up in as you can see here. Please call and write your senator today in support of these brave and dedicated youth and what they are fighting for.
