At the State level, bicyclists are indebted to the lobbying by the California Bicycle Coalition (CBC) and the California Association of Bicycling Organizations (CABO). EBBC is a member of both organizations. CBC is a membership-based organization that can use your direct support, while CABO is an "organization of organizations" that gets it's clout from groups like EBBC.
Complete bill text, history, and status, plus contact information for the State Senators and Assembly Members is available at www.leginfo.ca.gov. In writing to bill authors and your local representatives, please include your full name and address, and identify yourself as a member of the East Bay Bicycle Coalition. More tips for effective letter writing are available from the League of Women Voters.
At the National level, the League of American Bicyclists works hard to represent bicyclists' interests. EBBC is a member and we encourage individuals to contribute to their efforts to organize and lobby on our behalf. Who's my representative?
