Greetings MMOB & Leave My Child Alone’rs,

Exciting news, thanks to so many of you! It was just announced that the California Senate passed our Student & Family Privacy Protection Bill, and its success bodes well for similar efforts against intrusive military recruiting in other states. Can you help again on the last but final crucial hurdle? Please join us between now and September 30th in urging California Governer Arnold Schwarzenegger to sign A.B. 1778 by phone or e-mail.

Introduced by Assemblywoman Lieber to make it easy for families to protect their privacy, the A.B.1778 bill requires that a military recruitment “opt out” be included on students’ emergency information card. This will help California high schools avoid releasing private student information to military recruiters without the knowledge of their parents.

MMOB’s partners on the Leave My Child Alone campaign, Working Assets, set up a tool here to send an easy email of support for AB 1778 to the Governor: 

Or you could phone or fax a simple message of support to his office:

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger
State Capitol Building
Sacramento, CA 95814
Phone: 916-445-2841
Fax: 916-445-4633

Thanks for staying active on this — this legislation will not only help millions of California families, but will provide successful model legislation for states across the country.

Best to everyone,

Megan, Felicity and the crew at Mainstreet Moms, with the Leave My Child Alone project
