PACIFIC BEACH DEMOCRATIC CLUB

Urgent Action on AB 392 & the Proposed Vehicular Habitation Ordinance

Hello PB Dems!

This is an urgent call to action. We recently learned that the SD City Council will vote this upcoming Tuesday (5/14) on two issues that PBDC has been highly involved in:

1) AB 392 – Assemblymember Shirley Weber’s bill on Police Use of Force. PBDC voted to endorse and support this legislation.
2) Vehicular Habitation Ordinance. The current version proposed would criminalize homelessness. Please see our Political Action archive at https://www.pbdemocrats.com/political-action for a club resolution on a humane and comprehensive Ordinance, which we don’t believe the current version to be.

So what are we asking from you? 2 things!

  • Email or call Councilmember Jen Campbell’s office prior to Tuesday to express support for AB 392, and lack of support for the Vehicular Habitation Ordinance in its current form. Contact info and suggested wording can be found below.
  • Next, if you can make it, attend the City Council meeting and speak on these issues. Here’s the info for the meeting:
    • Date: Tuesday, May 14, 2019
    • Time: Arrive by 1:30pm (start time 2:00pm)
    • Location: City Administration Building, 202 C Street, San Diego, CA 92101, 12th Floor

Here’s the contact info for Councilmember Campbell, and suggested wording for both items:
Councilmember Jen Campbell
[email protected]
(619) 236-6622

Support of AB 392:
I support AB 392 because it addresses California’s shameful record of unnecessary police killings, but still safeguards the lives of police officers. I urge you to vigorously support this bill so that our state can bring about positive change in the relationship between the police and the communities they serve. Thank you for your support.

Opposition to current form of the proposed Vehicular Habitation Ordinance:
On April 4, 2019, the Pacific Beach Democratic Club unanimously passed a resolution in favor of a humane vehicle habitation policy that does not criminalize homelessness, and that provides a comprehensive approach to dealing with homeless San Diegans who live in their cars. The ordinance being reviewed today is NOT humane, it does NOT decriminalize homelessness, and it is NOT comprehensive in any way. In addition, because it is so similar to the previous invalidated ordinance, it is also probably NOT constitutional. For this reason, we urge you to vote AGAINST the ordinance in its current form. Thank you.

Thanks, PB Dems! If you have any questions on this, please feel free to contact [email protected]. We’ll also have Club members attending the meeting, so let us know if you want to get in contact with those members and we’ll get you their contact info.

 

Membership Dues
Your membership with the club makes sure that you are directly linked to all of the exciting, important, and critical work your fellow members and sister organizations are doing at the local, county, state, and national level to promote Democratic values and principles.
