Stand Up for California: Phone banking

Budget cuts from all directions are hurting kids, seniors, and our economic recovery.

Update as of June 28: The budget deal went through on Monday June 27, therefore, we are cancelling the last week of phone banking.

We need to pass a state budget with no more drastic cuts. Some Republican leaders are willing to prevent more devastating cuts by maintaining our existing revenues, but a minority is blocking them from doing the right thing.

We can make the difference.

That’s why in April, SEIU 521 members traveled to the hometowns of key Republican leaders and urged constituents to call the legislators and say: “Stand up for California. We need a budget with no more drastic cuts.”

The next step is phone banking.
