More than 20% of California’s children live in poverty


The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.


I’ve always been proud to be a Californian, but the fact that nearly 1 out of every 4 children in our state is living in poverty is unacceptable  It is time to acknowledge that something is profoundly wrong when it comes to caring for the youngest among us. It is time to change course.

In 2015, 47.2% of children in the state were poor or near poor while 21.2% of children in California lived in families without enough resources to make ends meet.

I am running for Governor because I am on fire to make the changes necessary to lift Californians out of poverty. Help make a difference and give children a voice by supporting my campaign and contributing $29.20 right now. We must change course because our children cannot wait.

Thank you for your support.

Sincerely,

Delaine
