Wear Denim During Legislative Action Day on April 24 to Show Solidarity for Sexual Assault Awareness Month in California

April 22, 2019
As hundreds of city officials from throughout the state prepare for the League’s Legislative Action Day on Wednesday, this is a reminder that city officials attending the event have the option to wear denim while they are in Sacramento to lobby their senators and assembly members on bills affecting California cities.
 
Legislators and their staff will also be in jeans to raise awareness and recognize Denim Day California, a day during Sexual Assault Awareness Month in which individuals are encouraged to wear jeans to communicate the message that there is never an excuse, or invitation to commit, sexual assault.
 
The League’s annual Legislative Action Day is an opportunity to meet with legislators and their staff in the Capitol to discuss the most pressing issues for California cities. The day begins with briefings from League staff, legislative leaders, and representatives from the Governor’s office discussing topics including priority legislation and the state budget. The middle of the day is reserved time for your meetings in the Capitol.
 
Given the importance of housing issues, the League has invited the chairs of key policy committees for a late-afternoon housing panel co-sponsored by the League’s five diversity caucuses. Panelists include:
  • Sen. Jim Beall, chair, Senate Transportation Committee;
  • Sen. Scott Wiener, chair, Senate Housing Committee; and
  • Assembly Member David Chiu, chair, Assembly Housing and Community Development Committee.
