tent city.jpegOceanside Approves Emergency Measures to Clean Up Homeless Camps
(Source: The San Diego Union Tribune)
The Oceanside City Council unanimously approved an emergency motel voucher program and an anti-camping ordinance Wednesday, both effective immediately and aimed at the tent communities growing along South Oceanside Boulevard and elsewhere. The two actions are designed to work together, staff members said. If the city can offer homeless individuals an available bed and support services, it can ticket them for “camping, sleeping, sitting, lying and storing personal property” in public places when they refuse to leave. More details.


Mandatory Sexual Harassment Prevention Training Available for Discounted Price through the Oceanside Chamber
California law requires all employers with five or more employees to provide sexual harassment prevention training to all employees by January 1, 2021, and then every two years. This mandatory training for supervisors (two hours) and nonsupervisory employees (one hour) must also take place within six months of hire or promotion and again every two years. (Taking these individual-learner courses in a group setting will not satisfy the state requirements.) The Oceanside Chamber of Commerce has partnered with CalChamber to offer a 20% discount for online Employee Harassment Prevention Training, and online Manager/Supervisor Harassment Prevention Training. CalChamber makes it easy to train all your employees and managers to meet your California compliance obligations. More details.

CDPH-Logo.pngBeyond the Blueprint for a Safer Economy
As we reach 20 million vaccines administered and COVID-19 case rates and hospitalizations have stabilized, California is looking to move beyond the Blueprint for a Safer Economy to fully reopening our economy. On June 15, all industries across the state can return to usual operations with common-sense risk reduction measures such as masking and vaccinations. We will only progress to this stage if we continue to stay vigilant, keep wearing our masks and getting vaccinated. The state will monitor hospitalization rates, vaccine access, and vaccine efficacy against variants with the option to revisit the June 15 date if needed. More details.

open.jpgTell Congress: Act Now. Small businesses still need help to recover!
Send a message to your members of Congress: we need them to provide unrestricted grants to save our small business community before it’s too late.

It has been one-year since the COVID-19 pandemic shut down U.S. small businesses. While the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and the Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL) provided a crucial lifeline for many businesses, the programs’ rollout, technical errors, and restrictive loan parameters caused many small businesses—especially newer businesses and under-resourced communities—to fall through the cracks. Small businesses continue to struggle to keep their doors open.

We have joined with the Save Small Business Coalition and other to call on congressional leaders to provide grant funding for the smallest of America’s businesses. 91% of small business owners say they want Congress to pass legislation authorizing direct grants.

You can help by using our one-click letter and sending your letter to your elected officials as well as Senate and Congressional leaders. Our template makes it easy and all you have to do is click "submit" and your letter will be sent. Send letter.
