What an exciting campaign kickoff we had on Saturday! We are delighted to let you know there were 1,500 people in attendance, and that is because of people like you. We sincerely thank you for being there and helping to put a face to the working people whose jobs we are fighting to protect. There is nothing that resonates more deeply with the elected officials upon whom we are relying to pass AB 1839.
There is much work to be done in the months ahead as the bill passes through the Assembly and Senate and ultimately ends up on the Governor’s desk. We will be calling upon you again to join us in these efforts. If you don’t already know who your state representatives are, please visit http://findyourrep.legislature.ca.gov/ and keep their information on hand. This will make it easier for you to contact them when called upon to do so.
We are also collecting personal stories of the workers who have suffered job loss, as well as those who’ve been separated from their families and friends for months at a time to work in states that offer greater tax incentives. If you have a story to tell, please send it to Outreach@BacktoCA.com. Keep an eye on BackToCA.com for information and updates about the campaign to save California's film industry.
You may not realize the impact you have already made just by being there Saturday, but rest assured it was great. We must do everything possible to secure the future of entertainment jobs in California. But it is only through working together, in great numbers, that we can achieve true success.
Thank you so much.
