fighting for womens rights

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


There has been so much going on that it is hard to decide what issues should get top priority. But I wanted to make sure that the actions of Donald Trump and the GOP in the House didn’t get overlooked from last week.

Last week, women’s rights were trampled on when the House voted to take away birth control from millions of women nationwide simply because their employer doesn’t agree with their personal decisions involving their health.

Let me be clear: This is a women’s health issue and it should be a decision that SHE makes with the help of family and doctors, not her boss or her government.

Do you agree? I need you to stand with me now in opposition. Add your name here >>

I trust women to make their own health decisions, that’s why I’m a strong supporter of Planned Parenthood and the work they do in our community and throughout our nation.

I’m ready to hit the ground running on day one after being elected to strongly oppose roll backs to this popular and crucial component of the Affordable Care Act. The only people who should be in the conversation on birth control and women’s health should be a woman, her doctor, and her family. Period.

I need your help to send a clear message right now that we will not stand idly by as Congress rolls back women’s rights. Add your name here >>

Thank you for standing with me,

Once again, our heart is broken watching our fellow Americans suffer the impact of a natural disaster — this time the horrific wildfires devastating northern California and parts of Southern California.


We continue to pray for the families of the 21 who have died, the more than 200 who have been injured, and the many more who have been impacted by some of the worst wildfires in California history.


We can’t thank enough the many brave firefighters and other emergency personnel who have risked their lives to save lives and try to protect homes and businesses. We are always grateful for their courageous service.


At times like this, we need to offer more than just our thoughts and prayers. We need to help our fellow Californians. That is why I’m asking you to take action today and make a contribution to organizations that work to help victims and survivors of these wildfires.


Let’s do what we always do in times of crisis; let’s be there for each other. Your support, large or small, will make a big difference for someone who has suffered a loss due to these fires.


Thank you in advance,


Alex and Angela Padilla
