Hello HSBaseballweb California community.
Our student athletes need your help!
Los Angeles high school students have been locked out of school for the past 10 months and there is no projected re-opening date. Sports are banned for high school student-athletes by the California Department of Health. It is a misdemeanor crime to participate in organized athletic events for children in LA.
Please join the community petitioning to open athletics to students. The movement has several important milestones this week. You can find more information on Twitter at #LetthemplayCA and on the Facebook group LetthemplayCA.
My family has directly received calls offering support from our local California state assemblyman and senator. They ask that we get the word out as broadly as possible and that all students tell their stories to their elected officials.
From the Facebook page (I am a member, not the organizer):
Hello All, I have not put much on the page as of late because we have been incredibly busy behind the scenes preparing for our press conference in Sacramento next Wednesday. Here is how you can help: Call and email your state Senator and Assemblymen and ask them to attend the Let Them Play CA Press conference on the west steps of the Capital at 1:00 PM on 1/27/21
senate.ca.gov/senators to find the directory and contact information for your Senator.
assembly.ca.gov/assemblymember to find the directory and contact information of your assemblymen.
Tell them its important that they attend and support The Let Them Play CA movement.
This is how you help get it done, this is how we help all of our kids do lets goooo!!!!
