State Bills to Support or Oppose
The Unity Project has done an excellent analysis and needs your help
Last year, The Unity Project worked with dozens of grassroots organizations and strategic partners to educate Californians on the horrific bills that were being proposed and voted on in the state legislature. With help from many volunteers, perhaps even yourself, they passed out more than 150,000 flyers in three languages and educated 86% of California communities on the consequences these anti-Medical Freedom and Parental Rights bills would have on everyone living, working, or learning in the state.
Now, Unity is expanding across the country and needs your help!
The Unity Project is creating state specific flyers highlighting Bad Bills to fight as well as Good Bills to support.
Below are some of the bills that have been presented so far in 2023.

The truth is like a lion; you don't have to defend it. Let it loose; it will defend itself.
A reader just sent me this to add to the list:
Idaho House passes ban on gender-affirming medical care
"A bill criminalizing gender-affirming healthcare for minors has overwhelmingly passed the Idaho House"
strange that this list kind of also means "places I'd consider living" vs "places I'd not consider living"
