Keep track of bills for the California Senate and for the California Assembly. For a daily, in real-time updates there’s CapitolTrack which has a free trial period but does cost.
Each bill must appear in the Daily File for four days prior to being heard in a committee. If the bill has a fiscal impact or a state cost, it will be heard in either the Senate or Assembly Appropriations Committee.
Bills are also amended often. Contact with the District Office can be helpful in keeping track of current versions of a bill. Here is a list of the California Senate Staffs and Assemblymembers’ District Staffs.

Black Youth 100: “BYP100 is an activist member-based organization of Black 18-35 year olds, dedicated to creating justice and freedom for all Black people.” They are intersectional and the vision for their programs is based on a “black, queer feminist lens.” BYP100 launched a resource on MLK Day 2016 called the Agenda to Build Black Futures. Billed as a grassroots “call for change,” the agenda presents an economic justice platform split into six goals that spotlight issues once at the margins of civil rights movements, such as women’s work.
