What a busy week for our team!!
We’ve been campaigning hard for Senate Bill 100, the California Clean Energy Act (authored by Kevin de León). This bill will accelerate our state’s transition to renewable and zero-carbon energy, mandating 100% renewable by 2045 and 50% by 2026.
We also jumped into action over the weekend to oppose AB 726 and AB 813 which would threaten the viability of Community Choice Energy programs across the state.
Take a look at what we’ve accomplished in just five days!
Wednesday: Our kids made signs for SB 100
Thursday: Launched statewide call-in campaign to Assemblymembers in support of SB 100
Friday: Co-organized press conference in favor of SB 100 at San Jose City Hall.
See this short (52 second) video clip from our team leader Linda Hutchins-Knowles's impassioned speech.

Saturday: Tabled at the Cupertino Fall Festival, collecting dozens of signatures on postcards in favor of SB 100
Sunday: Launched statewide call-in campaign to Senators and Assemblymembers AGAINST AB 726 and AB 813, which threaten the viability of Community Choice Energy programs across the state
Tuesday: A group of nine mothers and children hand-delivered 133 “Yes on SB 100” postcards to Assemblymember Evan’s Low’s district office.
A huge THANK YOU to everyone on our team who helped with this campaign, including Amanda, Angie, Anne, Cynthia, Jennifer, Linda, Martina, Stacy, Sue, Rebecca, and Stephanie, and to everyone who made calls and signed postcards.
Oh, and it’s not over yet—these bills will be voted on THIS WEEK, so please CALL AGAIN tomorrow to urge your Assemblymembers to vote YES on SB 100 and NO on AB 726 and AB 813.
Thank you—what a team!!!
