Show your Solidarity! Show up for immigrant and marginalized communities, by advocating with Governor Jerry Brown!
PART 1: ACT ON AT LEAST ONE OF THE FOLLOWING:
a. Help stop rape on the night shift! Support the 100 brave women janitors walking 100 miles from SF to SAC and call Gov. Jerry Brown (916) 445-2841 to tell him to sign AB-2079 (Janitorial workers: sexual violence and harassment prevention training). Follow SEIU United Service Workers West for updates!
b. Support Ethnic Studies in California! AB-2772 allows for high schools in California to apply for grants to incorporate ethnic studies as a curriculum. SB-895 will require the department of education to make a Vietnamese American studies curriculum that will be accessible for district adoption.

Please take the time to call the governors office tomorrow and ask him to sign AB-2772 and SB-895.
