Want to take action TODAY to help victims and protect kids? Here’s how:
Tomorrow, Wednesday (8/21), the California State Assembly Appropriations Committee will consider a measure that makes it easier for child sex abuse victims to expose predators in court, keep kids safe right now and hold wrongdoers accountable.
Please take just a few minutes and contact the lawmakers below, urging them to vote YES on SB 131.
The San Jose Mercury News—as well as other papers across the state—have urged a yes vote. You can also read my previous posts about the bill here and here.
You CAN HELP! Please send an email TODAY. And please circulate this request to others you know understand the importance of shining the light of truth on child sexual abuse.
Here is the list of important legislators to contact. You can find their email address and phone numbers here.
