RUN is moving legislation

RUN members have been actively supporting the priority bills since early spring. They have been activating residents and community members to urge senators to vote yes on SB 329, AB 10 and SB 282. Specifically, members and partners have held more than a dozen in-district visits with legislators, made countless phone calls, and collected more than 200 postcards in support of SB 329 from constituents in targeted Senate districts and delivered them to the Senators’ offices in the days leading up to the SB 329 vote on the Senate floor. This is how we move our bills!

San Joaquin Valley is taking action!

On April 18th, a delegation of RUN members and residents of Self-Help in the San Joaquin Valley met with Madera County Supervisor Max Rodriguez. The members included, Francisca Lopez, Rosa Santos, and Roxana Garcia, along with staff members Roberto Jimenez and Patrick Isherwood. The group discussed the importance of the Supervisor continuing to support low income housing efforts in his county.  Self-Help Enterprises has a long history of successful housing, water and waste-water, and community development projects throughout Madera County.  The delegation shared what RUN is and how it’s an important tool to help bring advocacy around housing issues to the county. The delegates also shared their need for more policing efforts in their neighborhood.  It was a positive meeting that allowed the delegates to meet another champion for their voices and make the local policy connection.
