Thanks, Sandy. And a little more about the bill: CCPA (AB 375) will make California the first state to give consumers online control over their personal information so that they can better protect their privacy, with special protections for kids under 16. Hoping to get as many calls on this piece of legislation as we can before a critical Thursday deadline.

It’s real!! It’s a beginning- it’s grassroots and just the beginning of a justice movement. Picket lines begin with a seed of hope and California is a strong state supporting civil rights, so I have no doubt this is the beginning of something bigger.
