SSI Cost of living

Tell Sacramento Leaders To Step Up!
View this email in your browser
A raise of $4 a month was the only increase for SSI/SSP in the budget last June. That isn't enough to lift out of poverty the elderly and disabled Californians who depend on SSI/SSP to survive.  It is often their only source of income and it is below the federal poverty line.

Please join other faith voices in calling on the State Legislature to provide a cost of living increase for  SSI/SSP Today!

Assembly Member Cheryl Brown's (D-San Bernardino) bill, AB 1584 will reinstate the COLA for January 1 2018.  We need to get this bill out of Appropriations so it can become law.

Please make 2 quick calls today, and please share this message with your networks to get as many calls in before Friday!
Senate Appropriations Chair Ricardo Lara: (916) 651-4033
Senate Pro Tempore Kevin de León: (916) 651-4024

Sample Script:        Hi, my name is ____ from [city] and I'm calling as a faith advocate of the Multi-faith ACTION Coalition to ask Senator Lara/De León to please support AB 1584 to restore the SSI/SSP COLA and help lift 1.3 million Californians out of poverty!

We have heard from many partners that this is a crucial advocacy effort. Please take a moment to make the calls.  The power of the faith community should never be underestimated!

Thank you!
