SEIU2015 represents over 180 In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) caregivers in Colusa County. The union is in contract negotiations with the County of Colusa. IHSS workers are essential workers. The majority of them truly work on the front line of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The union is asking Indivisible Colusa activists to send letters to the Colusa County Board of Supervisors in support of raising IHSS workers' wages. The Supervisors are the ones who decide if these essential workers receive an increase in wages.
HOW YOU CAN HELP - 2 STEPS
1. Download this sample Individual Support Letter, edit it as you wish, and email or mail it to the Supervisor of your district. (Click here for a map of the supervisorial districts.)

Residents of Assembly District 3 (which includes the city of Colusa but not Williams or Arbuckle): Call Assemblymember James Gallagher today or first thing Tuesday, May 5 and tell him to vote NO on AB 2261 when it comes up for a vote in the Assembly Committee on Privacy and Consumer Protection on May 5.
Assemblymember James Gallagher's Yuba City District Office: (530) 671-0303
Hi, my name is [ your name ] and I live in [ your city ].
I'm calling to ask Assemblymember Gallagher to VOTE NO on AB 2261 in the Assembly Committee on Privacy on May 5.
This bill tries to capitalize on a public health crisis, but facial recognition can only magnify COVID-19's harms. Invasive surveillance is a public health risk and it endangers the very Californians most vulnerable to the coronavirus pandemic.
Facial recognition tech also intensifies existing bias in policing and distracts valuable resources from real solutions to the COVID-19 crisis.
Please VOTE NO ON AB 2261. Thank you.
