3 Events that Require Reservations / Tickets in Advance
(Wednesday, March 15; Saturday, March 18; Tuesday March 21)
Wednesday, March 15
Wednesday, California Values Act – Sacramento Statewide Day of Action (Must register for seat on the bus, there’s still room.)
Wednesday, March 15th – Buses from San Francisco:
Purpose of the day is to amplify the moral crisis surrounding the debate about bills aimed at protecting targeted people (SB 54 – CA Values Act, SB 6 – Due Process for All, AB 3 – Public Defender, SB 31 – Religious Freedom Act). We will engage in an intersectional framing that unifies our diverse communities.
Feel free to bring posters and signs, using messages about “California Values”, “Protecting ALL Families”, “Religious Freedom”, “Stop Criminalization”, etc.
This bus will depart at 7:30am from St. John the Evangelist Church, 1661 15th St., San Francisco. Please arrive at 7:15am. The church is 2 blocks from 16th St. BART. There is a day parking lot on 16th and Hoff. If you drive, please leave enough time to find parking and walk to the church.
Agenda for the Day (this is a tentative agenda and timing of activities may change – an update will be provided on the bus)
10am – Preparation for action at a church in Sacramento (we anticipate 1,500 people or more)
11am – Walk to capitol building for rally, symbolic action and direct action
1pm – Delegations to talk with key legislators while rest hold vigil in capitol building
3:30pm – Depart
Lunch will be provided. Water and light snacks will be provided on the bus. Remember: this day will involve a lot of people and many things may happen so preparing for self care is important – bring what you will need to stay comfortable and energized (comfortable shoes, layers, water bottle, a snack, etc).
Update on SB 54, the CA Values Act to protect immigrants
Amendments to the bill have been introduced that would require the Board of Parole Hearings to notify the FBI of the scheduled release of people who were convicted of a violent felony, and allow Sheriffs to notify the FBI of the release date of a person who has a prior conviction for a violent felony. As a statewide network, we continue to push for the original version of the bill that would not allow law enforcement to share information with the federal government. With immigrants leading the discussion of interests, we continue working with allies, such as the ACLU, NDLON and others, to determine our collective position. We will provide further updates as we can.
