Speak out against President Trump's Executive Order separating families by speaking in support for the California Religious Freedom Act (SB 31) at the California Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing on Tuesday, January 31, 2017.

SB 31 would prevent a state or local agency, or a public employee from participating in a federal program to create a database based on a person's religious beliefs, practice or affiliation, national origin, or ethnicity, for law enforcement or immigration purposes. It would also prevent the state and local law enforcement agencies from collecting information on the religious beliefs, practices, or affiliations of an individual. The bill prohibits the use of state and local resources to create a religious database and would terminate any existing agreements that make any agency or department information or database available in conflict with these provisions.

Although the recent emergency stay on Trump's executive order is in effect, our efforts in protecting the civil liberties of Muslims are far from over.

Make your voice heard:

Attend the Senate Judiciary Committee vote on SB 31. The hearing is open to the public and will provide a section for public comments for anyone to give their individual support as a citizen of California.
