Mission Hills United Church of Christ
Come to Hillcrest Indivisible's monthly meeting, featuring an in-person presentation by Congresswoman Sara Jacobs to update us on her first year in Congress and what we can do to support the Democratic agenda. We are excited to hear from her and to congratulate her on a great first year. Please come prepared with questions for Rep. Jacobs.
We will discuss the recently re-drawn U.S. Congressional districts. As you know, HI’s membership has always been mainly split between two Congressional Districts represented by Jacobs and Rep. Scott Peters. With the new plan, some of us are now in a different district.
We will discuss the likely candidates running and plans for midterm campaigning.
And, as always, there is a lot going on in California and local politics.
We will meet at the Mission Hills United Church of Christ in a well-ventilated, indoor meeting hall. The pandemic is still here so all in-person participants must be fully vaxxed, boosted, masked, and distancing will be enforced. Masks may be removed when presenting to the group. No food will be served at this time.
Plenty of street parking available.

See you January 26th!
The utility companies are making another power grab! On January 27, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) is scheduled to vote on a proposal to make solar unaffordable for most people.
The CPUC is supposed to be protecting citizens. However, instead of incentivizing people for sharing their excess solar energy from their solar panels, there is a plan to charge them more fees!
No one should pay a penalty for putting solar panels on their roof. California should be doing more, not less, to promote rooftop solar--it is a major solution to address the climate crisis!
CPUC has proposed to charge a solar penalty fee averaging $57 per month while slashing the solar credit by 80%. It will put solar out of reach for working and middle class people. The CPUC claims to have made provisions for CARE customers, but their proposals would still make solar $24-$50 per month more expensive than the status quo.
Here are the details if you need them: https://bit.ly/335kkL8
The CPUC will vote on their proposal on January 27.
So much is at stake here - the jobs and livelihoods of tens of thousands of solar workers; the ability for people to get out from under crushing utility bills and blackouts; the chance for future generations to live on a habitable planet.
We OPPOSE the CPUC’s proposal and we need to increase the pressure on Governor Newsom to take a stand BEFORE January 27th when the CPUC makes their final decision.
Please call Governor Newsom repeatedly, weekly and even daily until he takes a stand. His number is[masked] his office is open 9 to 5 Monday through Friday.
Tell him in your own words that you are against the proposed CPUC rule or use the following script:
“My name is (Real first and last name) and I live in San Diego. I am against the proposed CPUC rule that adds a solar penalty fee and slashes the value of rooftop solar 80%!
No one should pay a penalty for putting solar panels on their roof. California should be doing more, not less, to promote rooftop solar! Please show us you are serious about rate hikes, blackouts, and air pollution. Tell the CPUC “NO!” to the utilities profit grab and “YES” to helping millions of working and middle-class people get solar.
We stood up for you in the recall – you need to stand up for us now. Thank you.”
Tell us you called by indicating your are “attending” this Meetup it encourages others to call the Governor, too!
Thank you for standing up for the climate!
