Legislators hear Local 1000 issues direct from members on Lobby Day
Making politics matter at the capitol
Local 1000 activists went to the Capitol on August 26 to lobby on behalf of our members.
Representing worksites and DLCs from across the state, the members brought our issues to legislators through face-to-face conversations. Making these personal connections ensures that the people who make laws understand the real consequences of their decisions on the working people of California.
The member-lobbyists received training in the morning and then traveled to the Capitol with an important goal: show lawmakers that politics matter to Local 1000 members.
In their own words:
“I bring the voice of over 95,000 state workers to share with legislators. It’s important to let them know how we feel so they know how to do their job.”
