On Tuesday, April 29 the Golden State would be on the verge of revolt against Washington, D.C.’s self-proclaimed right to carry out secret, mass surveillance with state resources. Two bills, SB828 andAB2468 are set up for their first committee hearings, Senate Public Safety and Assembly Judiciary Committee respectively, but the votes are anything but secured for liberty and privacy.

YOUR ACTION IS NEEDED NOW. It doesn’t matter where in California you live, take these actions today. It takes 30 minutes.

1. Call the Committee Chairs:
SB828: Loni Hancock, Chair of the Senate Public Safety Committee. (916) 651-4009
AB2468: Bob Wieckowski, Chair of the Assembly Judiciary Committee. (916) 319-2025
Strongly, but respectfully, urge support for their respective bill. If either doesn’t commit to a YES vote, ask why. If undecided, let them know you’ll call back on Monday. A phone call has 10x the impact of an email. The same goes for calling the rest of the committee members. And leaving one message over the weekend won’t hurt.

2. Call the rest of the committee members:
Again, be strong, but respectful. Urge each of them to take action to move the bill forward and vote YES. If they do not commit to a YES vote, ask them why. If they’re undecided, let them know you’ll call back on Monday.
Thank Joel Anderson (Vice Chair) for cosponsoring the bill (916) 651-4036

**BONUS** action! Group leaders, send a letter to the committee in support. If you are in a leadership role with a grassroots (or other) group within the state of California, send a letter to the full committee expressing your support for these bills. The committee will be influenced to some degree by the number – and type – of groups which send letters. Keep it to one page, as they tend to just keep a list of groups and those in favor or opposed.
Senate Standing Committee on Public Safety
State Capitol Building, Room 2031
Sacramento, CA 95814
Assembly Judiciary Committee
1020 N Street, Room 104
