Support the California Opportunity and Prosperity Act (COPA) – ACA 27.

The California Assembly is due to vote on COPA in the next 3 weeks. COPA would provide a “safe harbor” to up to 2 million undocumented California residents.

We are urging the Latino Legislative Caucus to adopt COPA/ACA 27 as a unifying cause for Latino legislatures and their constituents for 2012.  Help us by calling 14 Latino Legislatures Today!

Here’s how:

1. Dial their capitol office and ask to speak with their legislative director or contact person.  If they are not available leave a message with the secretary.

2. When you speak you should say something like:

For Assemblymembers:

“Hi my name is __________, I am calling on behalf of [your organization] part of the COPA/ACA 27 Community Coalition.  I’m calling to ask the Assemblymember to vote yes on ACA 27 – COPA.”

For Senators:

“Hi my name is __________, I am calling on behalf of [your organization] part of the COPA/ACA 27 Community Coalition.  I’mcalling to ask the Senator to support ACA 27 – COPA.  This is an important piece of legislation for our community.”

3. That is it!  Make 14 of these calls and share with your membership network.
