What We’ve Accomplished This Year

On the heels of my one-year anniversary of becoming chief law enforcement officer and legal advocate for families statewide, I want to thank you for standing with me in our fight for fairness and opportunity.

From fighting for access to affordable healthcare, to protect LGBTQ rights, immigrant rights, workers’ rights, to taking on big oil giants and securing hundreds of millions of dollars in student loan debt relief, we haven’t lost one case yet.

In fact, among the 26 lawsuits we’ve filed against the Trump Administration to defend our people in California and planet, we’ve had only victories to date — 10 of them. The Washington Post highlighted some our environmental victories yesterday, for example, here.

But so many other lawsuits that we have filed to protect families across California are still underway in court — our challenge to the Administration’s medieval border wall, our challenge to the Administration’s decision to end payments for healthcare subsidies, and our fight to protect DACA Dreamers which could go to the Supreme Court.

My hope is to see every legal effort underway through the finish line.

We didn’t get to be the sixth largest economy in the world by sitting back.

But fighting harder and longer will take your continued support.

I hope to earn your support in my bid for Attorney General in 2018. At the end of the day, these fights aren’t just necessary to keep our state moving forward.

Can I count on you to stand with me? 

Thanks for all you do in our fight for fairness and opportunity,

Proud to be Californians

We have never been more proud to be Californians.

As California Democrats we have established ourselves time and time again as our nation’s most progressive, accomplished party.  Our California Dream inspires millions from around the world to be a part of it.  But we still have work to do, and we need to continue addressing the challenges facing our great state.

During convention this February, we will each be confronted not with obligation, but with great opportunity.  The opportunity and privilege to choose for ourselves the kind of representation we want in California and in Washington, D.C. 

Sign our endorsement form here.

As a delegate, your vote has the power to shape the future of our party.

We’ve fought together to protect our environment, our economy and the most vulnerable among us.

But let me be clear: for our progress and our vision to endure, we must continue to stand together as a united front to show Washington, D.C. that California will continue to lead the way.

I would be honored to have your support for my candidacy for the United States Senate at the CDP Convention in San Diego. 

I look forward to seeing you in San Diego this February.
