Suggested AB 1618 Phone Script:
My name is [First name, Last name]. I am an [Advocate/Mental Health Professional/Constituent] and I am in strong support of AB 1618 which will ensure that people who live with a serious mental illness have a roof over their head and the services they need.
Once signed into law, AB 1618 will utilize a small percentage of the Mental Health Services Act funds to leverage a $2 billion bond for permanent supportive housing.
This matters to me personally because… [State briefly why AB 1618 is important to you].
We know what works: It is housing paired with services. AB 1618 would make this a reality for tens of thousands of Californians.
I ask for your “Aye” vote on AB 1618 on the Assembly Floor on June 30th.
Thank you for Assemblymember [Last name]’s leadership on this issue!
Your voice MATTERS!! THANK YOU!!
