Hey folks,

No new updates, so just keep plugging away at the letter. We are at 43 
so far with Next Century Cities doing a parallel effort so I think we'll 
clear 50 and signers have been coming on the last couple days, so I 
think we should extend on signature gathering to COB Oct 2nd (Friday) 
and plan to do a release by the following Monday. I'm going to do a 
follow up ping to everyone with the current list of signers, which tends 
to generate more signers (people like being part of a group).

EFF and Common Sense Media are circulating the attached letter now for 
signers (sign on link at the bottom) to make that request. If your 
organization has either national presence or is based in California, we 
ask for your support by signing on. We need a critical mass to get this 
done and I appreciate any help you can lend to this effort. We are 
looking to submit the letter by September 28th.

If you have contacts with organizations in California that would have an 
interest in joining this effort, please forward them this email and link 
below for signers.

_*If your organization wishes to sign onto this letter, use the link 


If your organization wants to do social media on this letter and effort, 
please feel free to coordinate with our state activism lead Hayley 
Tsukayama (hayleyt at eff.org). We have to make a steady drum beat of noise 
to get the special session.
