AIQ Action for Wednesday, June 9th

This is a very important week for funding of these bills!

Health4All Update: Thank all who have been involved for a powerful month of advocating for Health4All in the budget. Leadership is finishing their negotiations, so it’s our last week to keep the pressure up and ensure they hear from us before the budget goes into print on Saturday! Last Friday, Senator Durazo joined several coalition members at Cliníca Romero in Los Angeles for a press event to call on Governor Newsom to cover those age 50+ in the budget. Everyday this week, please help us lift up Friday’s action by tweeting photos from the event and tagging the @CAgovernor. Photos and sample tweets can be all be found in the digital toolkit, which is provided in both English and Spanish. This is our last push before the budget is finalized.

Food4All Update: This is an important moment for this campaign. We haven’t heard any news since the Governor and Legislature began negotiating the final budget, which means there’s still time to make our voices heard and NOW is the best time 🙂 It’s not too late to tell Governor Newsom: fund Food4All! Call/Email Today: Governor Gavin Newsom or Phone: (916) 445-2841. Already called? Call again! Already did that? Ask a friend/family member to call/email!
