There Oughta Be A Law!

You’re invited to participate in Assemblymember Wicks’ “There Oughta Be A Law” contest. This program offers you the opportunity to propose new state legislation that could improve the lives of 38.9 million Californians.

Why Your Ideas Matter to Us

From the founding of the Black Panther Party in Oakland, to the Free Speech Movement in Berkeley, to Richmond’s recent emergence as a center for the environmental justice movement, our district has a remarkably rich history of political activism in pursuit of a better future for all. As your Assemblymember, I want to ensure that each of you has the opportunity to contribute to the next chapter of our political legacy.

Send Us Your Ideas by November 30, 2022

Proposals can include ideas for local community improvements, statewide reform, revisions to existing laws, entirely new policies, budget requests and funding proposals, and more. To apply, simply fill out the form below and submit your proposals by November 30. This contest is open to all AD-15 residents. If selected as a semi-finalist, we will reach out to you by email regarding next steps.

If Selected, Visit Us in the Capitol!

Contest winners are invited to Sacramento for a tour of the State Capitol and may even have an opportunity to testify on behalf of their bill at a formal hearing. But the real prize is knowing that your idea has the potential of becoming law across California!
