Call Gov Brown to ask that he support SB 54

Nobody is Above the Law Rally

Details: MoveOn has created an excellent resource to find events as a response if Mueller is fired. The page has events that are happening in many local cities as well as all across the united state. You can check them out here. Since it is not know when exactly Mueller would be fired, the events are planned based on the time of day that Mueller is fired. If he is fired before 2pm on any given day, the rallies will start at 5pm on that same day. If he is fired after 2pm, protests will occur at noon the following day. The goal is to have a strong and cohesive turnout. Many local events are already planned and the locations and links are as follows:
