The Hollywood Chapter of the National Organization for Women was pleased to support a number of bills that successfully passed the California Legislature and were signed by Governor Brown!  Those bills are:

  • SB 1421
  • AB 3118
  • AB 2243

Sadly, Governor Brown vetoed the following bills.  We will be working with a coalition of partners to bring back this legislation next year:

  • SB 1449
  • SB 320

The following bills died in committee:

  • SB 1150

We applaud Assemblymember Low for his work banning conversion therapy an unlawful business practice in California.  We look forward to him re-introducing AB 2943 at a later date!

Hollywood NOW withdrew its support for SB10.  While the bill, which was signed into law, in theory “end money bail,” it creates a most unjust process, giving extraordinary weight to judges, rather than create a fairer system.  We will be working with a coalition of groups to bring forth SB10 Reform in the coming years!
