Email from ACLU:
URGENT ACTION NEEDED TO SUPPORT UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE BILL
The Health Care for All Californians Act (SB 921) is just one
vote away from passage in the Assembly Health Committee. We have

bill pass in the Health Committee. Even though he does not sit

Here's a toll-free number for Speaker Nunez:
1. If you've never called a legislator, don't be nervous: the
staff person who answers your call doesn't want to debate you or
put you on the spot. You'll probably spend only a minute or two
on the phone, once you connect.
2. Be friendly and acknowledge the Speaker's leadership in the
past in expanding access to health care.
3. Tell the Speaker's staff passage of SB 921 would advance the
dialogue on health care for all and is a matter of critical
importance to all Californians, especially to working families.
4. Ask the Speaker to do everything possible to help SB 921 pass
the Health Committee on June 22.
5. Thank the staff member.
Thanks for your help! We're so close to a critical victory.
