Action Center

Welcome to the Action Center, where you can advocate for not only your community, but for California cities statewide.

The League of California Cities is its strongest when joined by the voices of members and coalition partners. The League's legislative and regional public affairs teams are here to work hand-in-hand with members to protect local control and stand up for city interests.
 
Should you have any questions about the materials here, or if you would like to become more involved, please contact your Regional Public Affairs Manager.
 
We appreciate your support!
 
To use this action center, simply select the bill or issue that you are interested in, and a sample letter, and other information will be ready for you to customize. You may select your legislators by zip code or using the drop down menu. Please note that due to redistricting there may be some discrepancies when searching for Senators by zip code.
