California lawmakers are bulldozing ahead with a costly plan to demolish the East Annex, block public access to the West Steps, and destroy Capitol Park.


Preserve our right to assemble on the West Steps and to exercise our constitutional freedoms.

Now is not the time to burden taxpayers with a $1.4 billion debt for the next 30 years. It’s time to increase public safety and rehabilitate the historic East Annex, not demolish and replace it.

Save Our Capitol!

Save Our Capitol! is working to preserve the historic Capitol and its surrounding Park, including hundreds of irreplaceable trees. Alternatives exist to make the Annex safe without spending more than $1.2 billion to excavate the West Steps, build a new parking garage, and demolish-and-rebuild the Annex, which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
