Organic Land Care for CA Schools Bill 468 - Moms Across America

Organic Land Care for CA Schools Bill 468

Today is the deadline to ask our legislators to support this bill!

The California Guild has introduced Assembly Bill 468 authored by Assemblyman Muratsuchi (D-Torrance). We should be proud of this landmark legislation that will require California school
sites and day care centers to utilize organic landscape management practices at school sites, playgrounds and athletic fields, replacing harmful pesticide and herbicides.  The bill is co-sponsored by Non-Toxic Communities and Beyond Pesticides.

Send in your letters of support!

AB 468 will begin its long journey into becoming law in front of the Assembly Education Committee on March 27.  We need your letters of support – DUE MARCH 19 by 5 pm

More information on AB 468 is available here:

What can you do?   SEND SUPPORT LETTERS!

Personal letters and letters from organizations are welcome.  If you represent an
organization, your letter should be on your organization’s letterhead

The deadline for receiving support letters or emails to the Assembly Education Committee
is 5:00 pm, Tuesday, March 19.

Personalize your letter any way you want.  For example, stories about children affected by pesticides are compelling.

    Just a reminder that organic farming utilises pesticides, and are generally more toxic than pesticides used in conventional farming (including glyphosate based ones)
