Legislative Action Alert

The Contra Costa Democratic Party strongly supports the CA Values Act (SB 54) which would ban local and state law enforcement officials from performing duties of federal immigration officers. This Senate bill authored by Senate President Pro Tempore Kevin de León has passed two committees and is headed to the Senate floor for a key vote. If it becomes law, California will lead the way and open the door for other states and counties to adopt similar progressive pro-immigrant policies that take the state and local law enforcement out of deportations.

We urge you to call your Senator!

Unfortunately, during this critical time, the bill faces stiff opposition, especially from the Sheriffs around the state who seem willing to support Trump's deportation agenda. Contra Costa County Sheriff Livingston is actively opposing this legislation.

We need your help to send a strong message to our elected officials that Trump's anti-immigrant politics won't be tolerated in California.

Here are a few steps to take action now!

1. Call your State Senator to urge them to vote in support of SB 54

“Hello, my name is _________ and I would like ask _________ to vote YES on the California Values Act, SB 54. This important immigrant rights bill is headed to the Senate floor. The bill will ensure that state and local resources are not used to further mass deportations. The California Values Act will uphold our core principles of equal treatment, community, and compassion. Say NO to Trump’s mass deportation programs, please vote YES on SB 54. Thank you.”

Senator Bill Dodd (Napa): 916-651-4003

Senator Steve Glazer (Contra Costa): 916-651-4007

Senator Nancy Skinner (Contra Costa) 916-651-4009

2. Tweet your State Senator

Vote YES on #SB 54. CA must lead the way against Trump’s racist, anti-immigrant agenda. #SB54 will protect immigrants from deportation! #CALeg

@Steve_Glazer
@billdoddca

If we work together, we can pass SB 54 in California and create a model for the rest of the nation, saying loud and clear "Our local police should protect all members of our communities, and not help enforce Trump's agenda of hate.
