NCJW-CALIFORNIA LOBBY WEEK (2).png

NCJW-California Lobby Week 

Join us on April 25th, 9 am to noon, for the Kick-off to NCJW-California’s Virtual Lobby Week!

 

Our legislative priorities this year are:

-Reproductive Freedom: AB 1666 prevents lawsuits in California courts enforcing out-of-state laws that criminalize California medical personnel or anyone else who aids an abortion of a woman from another state.

 

--Affordable Childcare: AB 92 will create an equitable sliding scale for family fees and will temporarily waive family fees for all families through 2023 to reduce the hardships of the pandemic.

 

--Housing and Homelessness: AB 1816 creates a reentry housing and workforce development program to allow people with recent histories of incarceration to exit homelessness and remain stably housed.

 

You'll hear from:

  • Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia, chair of the California Legislative Women’s Caucus, about their United Plan on Reproductive Freedom;

  • Shimica Gaskins, President and CEO of GRACE about the End Child Poverty in California Coalition’s “$10 Billion to Fight Poverty” campaign; and

  • Amazing advocates who will present the details of our three priority bills.

 

Our Section is currently scheduling virtual lobby meetings with our local legislators and will be scheduling briefing sessions regarding the bills and the ins and outs of lobbying.
