Pax Christi So-Cal held a mobilization event at Holy Family in South Pasadena hall with Mike Farrell from Yes on 62 as keynote. It was live streamed and we had groups in Orange, San Fernando, Fresno, East Los Angeles and other locations.

The people took 2 hours to canvas or rally near their site and then we had a debrief and next step action planning for following up.
