Calif. achieved a tremendous victory yesterday when a coalition of grassroots’ efforts managed to persuade Gov. Jerry Brown to sign into law the “California Liberty Preservation Act,” also known as AB-351 and “Habeas Corpus.”

The Calif. bill, or AB-351, started out as merely a grassroots effort supported by groups like the CA Libertarian Party, Bill of Rights Defense Committee, CA Republican Liberty Caucus, ACLU, and Oath Keepers, just to name a few.

The movement had literally zero support from the Calif. legislature until members of the above organizations showed up in court to testify at the bill’s first hearing.

    Our state gets so much wrong that it was empowering to get this one right. It was also exciting to work with other groups to get this passed! I was active with my Pasadena region, then I found out that Glynda Perrotte was in the Inland Empire, then I heard that Kevin Takenaga was working with Tim Donnelly–we all just spontaneously jumped in and started to get signatures, then making phone calls. I was an administrator of the Facebook Nullify page started by the Tenth Amendment Center, so I saw a lot of the activity in the legislature as soon as it happened. Los angeles County has a good Republican Liberty Caucus that many of us Libertarians know from the Ron Paul days. Sometimes it’s good to get past partisanship and just work on issues.

    I highly recommend everyone become familiar with the Tenth Amendment Center. I also recommend each state start a movement to chip away at the atrocious Patriot Act.

    Some lobbying effort was undertaken by San Francisco LP members too. Props to them!
