Stern/Mulak Advocacy Week:  January 19 - 21, 2021


This year during the Stern/Mulak Advocacy Week event, CSEA members will meet with leaders in both the Assembly and Senate, and representatives serving on California's two key tax policy Committees: the Senate Governance and Finance Committee; and the Assembly Revenue and Taxation Committee. CSEA members will advocate against a new tax on services and for more equitable enforcement of the healthcare mandate penalty.

Location: VIRTUAL

The pandemic and stay-at-home orders have affected CSEA’s traditional legislative activities at the capitol. Interactions will be held virtually through Zoom. Meeting details will be provided to participants after registration is completed.


The registration cost is $45 and all proceeds will directly benefit CSEA’s Legislative Action Fund.
