Here is a script you can use: "Hi, my name is _______ and I'm calling from ______. I am calling to ask Senator to reject AB 626, the homemade food bill in the Senate Judiciary Committee. This bill is tailored to the interests of big technology companies, not home cooks. Yes, we should have a better homemade food law, but the legislature should work on a better bill next year that ensures community control of homemade food. Please vote no on AB 626."
We need you to meet with your representatives:
Want to set up a meeting with your Senator in their local district office? This is the best way to let them know you really care about an issue.

We need you to volunteer:
We are also forming a working group of various community leaders and concerned folks to provide input on this evolving legislation and to take on various tasks like writing blogs, doing research, public speaking, or talking with people one-on-one or in small groups.
If you would like our help to organize a lobby visit with your State Senator or if you'd like to join our working group and get involved in other ways email Christina@theselc.org.
