Final Push for SB 1023: Support Foster Youth in College

SB 1023 Supporters,

 This morning, SB 1023 officially made it out of the Legislature and was referred to Governor Brown for his signature. Thank you to everyone who has helped make this possible. To ensure its success at this critical stage, we need a massive outpouring of support for the bill. Please take a minute to do four things:

1. Fax a letter to the Governor at (916) 558-3160 using the sample letter is attached by Monday, if possible.  Please send a new letter to the Governor even if you sent a letter when the bill was in the legislature.  All letters should include a signature and be on letterhead if from an organization.

2. Call the Governor’s office at (916) 445-2841, express your support and ask the Governor to sign SB1023

3. For those of you who work directly with foster youth, ask them to write personal letters to Governor Brown expressing their support.  A sample letter for foster youth to use is also attached.

4. Forward this message to others who can provide calls and letters. This includes posting to social media.

It would be best for the Governor to receive your calls and letters today, tomorrow and Monday, so please act ASAP.  Thank you again!
