ACTION 1Join one of our phone banks and call to oppose the Republicans’ terrible health care legislation.


It’s truly now or never! This may be our last chance at preventing the Republicans from reaching the 50 Senate votes they need to pass their horrendous health care bill. We are calling constituents of Republican senators and urging them to ask their senators to vote in opposition to the Republican bill. We will be specifically targeting Senator Flake of Arizona. Politicohas rated Sen. Flake as “up for grabs” regarding the AHCA. The reasons are 1) He is from a Medicaid expansion state and is worried about cutting back the program too quickly. 2) He is up for reelection next year in one of the few contested Republican general election matchups.

ACTION 2: Call our California Senators and tell them to use every legislative tool at their disposal to block and resist the Republican health care bill.

Why It’s So Important


The text of the Republican health care bill was just released, and the Senate may well vote on the bill next Thursday, June 29th.The Republicans are rushing to push ahead their health care bill with unprecedented secrecy and speed for such major legislation.

Why? The Republicans can’t afford to wait until public opposition to their terrible bill grows. By decimating Medicaid, this legislation will take health insurance away from millions of people; it will also increase health care premiums for older people, force low-income people to go without necessary care, defund Planned Parenthood, and punish people with pre-existing conditions, all while giving wealthy members of society tax breaks.

We need to call now and tell our California Senators to use more leverage! Democrats can slow the legislative process down and make it much harder for Republicans to get to 50 votes.


What to Do – Action Item 2

Call Senators Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris.

Suggested Script:

I’m calling Senator______to urge her to use every legislative tool at her disposal to block and resist the Republican health care bill. I urge her to “withdraw consent” to preventSenate business from moving forward when unanimous consent is required. I also urge the Senator to support the introduction of amendments to slow down the process of legislation.We must do everything possible to prevent the Republicans’ unjust and cruel health care bill from becoming law.

ACTION 3: To protect California immigrants, call Governor Brown and ask him to publicly announce his support for the California Values Act.

Why It’s So Important

The California Values Act (SB 54) is a bill critical to protecting immigrant communities in California. This bill prohibits California state and local law enforcement officers (including officers in schools and hospitals) from using local resources to investigate, detain, or arrest persons for immigration enforcement.  

The California Values Act is at a critical stage in the legislative process. Speak out now to make sure that state lawmakers and Gov. Brown not only support the bill, but also pass it as-is with no amendments that would weaken any of its protections.
