Members who live or work near San Francisco (or can travel there)
We are looking for chapter members who can travel to San Francisco willing to participate in small intimate round table discussions.
These discussions will be with: state senators, Diane Feinstein and Kamala Harris, and Congresswoman Pelosi, or their representatives, on a monthly basis.
Once a month there is a day meeting for each of the 3 representatives. TWS has been invited to the table to bring attention to current environmental policy, habitat, and species concerns. Scheduling will be dependent on number of interested members. Please contact us if you would like to join us.
Representing our chapter to your representatives -- EMAILS
At the February 2018 Western Section Annual Meeting in Santa Rosa, our chapter table had our first sign-ups for this easy and immensely helpful task.
We are looking for members (and can include members of other chapters) who are willing to send email letters provided to them highlighting TWS environmental concerns to their elected California Representatives in the area codes where they live.
CA Representative District Offices in:
Anna Eshoo 18 Palo Alto, Santa Cruz
Eric Swalwell 15 Castro Valley
Jerry McNerney 9 Stockton and Antioch
John Garamendi 3 Fairfield, Davis, Yuba City
Ro Khanna 17 Santa Clara
Remember that for each person that signs up, that counts as one email, one voice, for our chapter. The more of you that sign up to help, the louder our chapter's voice is for our elected representatives.
