Event description

Description

Governor Jerry Brown and the leaders of the State Senate and Assembly promised to prioritize an affordable housing bills package upon return from the legislative summer recess the week of August 21st. The Residents United Network (RUN) and Housing California need your help to make sure the Legislature doesn't waste this opportunity to pass meaningful affordable housing solutions! We need anyone and everyone -- residents, developers, advocates -- to join us August 22 in person, or by calling assemblymembers whose votes we need, to SUPPORT SB 2!

SB 2 is the Building Homes and Jobs Act. If passed, it would provide a permanent source of funding for affordable homes for the elderly, families, veterans, people with disabilities, farmworkers, people experiencing homelessness, and modest-wage earners ready to buy their first home. The investment would come from a $75 real estate document recording fee (capped at $225 and excluding all sales transactions). The California Association of Realtors, the California Building Industry Association, CA Federation of Teachers, and many more support SB 2!

If you can join us in person in Sacramento, we will:

  • Meet at the Housing California office (1107 9th Street, Suite 560) at 9:30 a.m.

  • Provide food and quick training

  • Create teams and head to the Capitol at 10:30 a.m. (We expect to complete our day by 2:30 p.m.)

If you can't join us in Sacramento, don't worry! Click REGISTER for this event and choose the "Call-In Participant" Ticket. Then, on August 22, call these assemblymembers between 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. and urge SB 2 SUPPORT.

SAMPLE SCRIPT: My name is [insert] and I am calling to ask for the Assemblymember's support for SB 2, the Building Homes and Jobs Act. SB 2 would provide crucial funding statewide to build more affordable homes. [If you live in one of these districts, let the person on the phone know. If you don't live in one of these districts, say that you are calling to ask the assemblymember to support your state representative (insert your member name) who voted for SB 2.] Can I count on the Assembymember's support?
