200K CA Dreamers Need Your Help

Last night the Trump Administration filed a petition requesting the Supreme Court reverse the preliminary injunction we secured in court that halted the Administration’s termination of DACA and reinstated the program temporarily!

The Ninth Circuit Court, which the Administration went to earlier this week to seek an appeal, hasn’t even ruled on the issue. I’m confident the courts will see the logic and justice of the preliminary injunction.

As a government shutdown looms and Dreamers await a permanent DACA fix, no matter what, we’ll keep fighting to stand up for the roughly 200,000 hardworking Dreamers in our state who worked hard to earn the chance to live and work in our communities.

While the Administration desperately runs from court to court asking for the injunction to be overturned, please remind every Dreamer you know who lost DACA status: right now, the Administration must continue to accept DACA renewal applications. Learn more here.

Thank you,

Media loves Delaine’s first video

Delaine Eastin for Governor 2018

Today we released our first campaign video and the news media is already talking about it.

From Politico: “FIRST IN PLAYBOOK: OPRAH, #WESAIDENOUGH AND WOMEN IN THE GOV’S RACE — Democrat Delaine Eastin, the former Superintendent of Public Instruction, is finally hitting hard with a pitch that could get her some real political traction and resonate with a crucial part of the electorate: her status as the only female candidate in the 2018 race for California governor. It opens with Oprah’s “new day” moment at the Golden Globes and notes “only 21.7 percent of California’s legislature is female — and we’ve never had a woman governor.” Watch the spot on YouTube here.

We need to remind people that even though California is seen as ground zero for the resistance, we still have major work to do in our own backyard to fight sexual harassment and to build a state that works for everyone. We can do this by electing more women to office and breaking the glass ceiling that is the governor’s office.

Tomorrow, Delaine supporters are joining forces all over California to participate in the women’s march. Delaine will be marching in San Diego. Click here to join us in your city.
