Fresno County, I wrote a year ago today about Trump’s immoral Muslim Ban and why now is not the time to sit on the sidelines and wait for someone else to defend our values.
I asked you to join me and stand up, just as Americans have done in generations past, to fight for justice and equality for all people.
And you did: tens of thousands of Americans poured into the streets and at our airports to protest Trump’s attack on immigrants and refugees that weekend. It was the beginning of a resistance that would stop the Republicans from repealing the Affordable Care Act and defunding Planned Parenthood, fight back against Trump’s attempt to ban transgender Americans from serving in the military, ensured that every single attempt to defund Planned Parenthood in Congress failed, and won huge electoral victories from Alabama to California to Virginia and everywhere in between.
With the election just under 10 months away, we can’t afford to slow down on fighting back and building a movement that can take back our country. So I promise you this: no matter what happens, Fresno County, I’m going to continue to fight this reckless Administration’s agenda in Washington and help progressive Democrats take Congress back in November. And I need to know if you’re with me:
Turning our backs on millions of refugees was a dark moment in American history, but one we have the power to undo if enough of us stand up in 2018 to end the bigoted policies of the Trump Administration. Never forget that you have a powerful voice at a moment in time when millions of people need to know they are not alone in this fight. Stand up and make sure no one in this country has to fight alone.
The United DREAMERS of California.
They’re working families.
Ricardo Lara fights for them every day.
Authoring single-payer healthcare and healthcare for kids.
Passing equal pay, tough environmental laws and free community college.
Our immigrants and ancestors didn’t come here in search of a dream — they brought the California Dream with them.
As Insurance Commissioner, I’ll fight to keep us — the United Dreamers of California —in control of our lives and our future.
I am thrilled to announce that i just received the endorsement of the California Nurses Association. This endorsement is important to me, because of the important work that I did with CNA to pass SB 1299, the Healthcare Workplace Violence Prevention Act. CNA has been leading the charge in Workplace safety and the fight toward universal healthcare.
Here’s what CNA Co-President, Malinda Markowitz said about the endorsement:
California Nurses Association is proud to endorse Alex Padilla for Secretary of State. Alex is a proven progressive champion for voting rights, labor rights, women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, campaign finance transparency, and guaranteed healthcare for all.
As a State Senator, he authored landmark legislation mandating comprehensive work place safety for nurses. As Secretary of State, he has taken on Donald Trump by resisting his voter suppression agenda. Alex is elevating the voices of working families by expanding voter registration opportunities giving voters more options of when, where, and how they cast a ballot.
I’m honored and thankful for the California Nurses Association’s recognition of the work I’m doing. And I’m proud to add them to the growing list of endorsements from Labor Unions including:
CA Professional Firefighters
State Building and Contraction Trades Council, AFL-CIO
CA Association of Professional Scientists
CA Faculty Association
Northern CA Carpenters
SF Police Officers Association
With so much on the line in the 2018 elections, I’m proud to have the support of hard working Californians coming together and standing together to fight for our values.
