On Tuesday, April 9th, the California Assembly Public Safety Committee will hold a hearing and do-or-die vote on AB351. Passage of this bill would be a serious setback to those advancing the power of “indefinite detention” in the United States.
AB351 NEEDS YOUR HELP RIGHT NOW TO PASS.
1. CALL all the members of the Public Safety Committee. Call in the evenings or on the weekend as well. We want them to have a flood of messages in support by the time they have the hearing on Tuesday. Be VERY respectful, but be strong. Urge each of them to vote YES on AB351.
