Celebrating California’s diversity

cadem

National Hispanic Heritage Month starts today, and it has never been more important to celebrate the contributions of EVERYONE who lives in California.

In his campaign for president, Republican nominee Donald Trump has unleashed a spirit of hatred. His promises to deport millions of people threaten our families and communities, and his dangerous rhetoric pits immigrants and non-immigrants against each other.

As a California Democrat, I know that we are stronger when we are united. I celebrate my Hispanic heritage, and I celebrate California’s diversity that makes our state great. Will you join me?

Share Our Graphic Celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month

People of Hispanic and Latino heritage continue to face a unique set of obstacles here in California and across the country.

As Speaker of the Assembly, I work for all Californians. That’s why I’m proud the Legislature passed landmark legislation for cleaner air in our poorest communities, expanded parental leave, approved a $15 minimum wage, increased the state earned income tax credit, and righted a 77-year wrong when we passed overtime for farm workers.

Together, we are putting more diplomas into the hands of California college students and taking dangerous firearms out of the hands of criminals.

But we must continue to fight for opportunities for our children, for job security and fair wages, and for the ability to vote without intimidation. Together, we will continue to build California.

As we kick off National Hispanic Heritage Month, I’ll hope you’ll join me in sharing our graphic — because it is our diversity that makes us strong.

Thank you,

Anthony Rendon
Speaker of the California State Assembly

9/11 Fifteen Year Anniversary

Yesterday marked the 15th anniversary since 9/11. The first veterans of what would be called the “War on Terror” were those first responders who ran into the carnage to save lives ultimately losing their own and the men and women who later went through rubble searching for the remains of fallen. They were the first to answer the call to service for a stunned nation. Since those attacks, those first responders have been stricken by illnesses caused by exposure to that toxic environment. In 2010 the Congress took up The James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act. After three attempts it was finally passed and each year subsequently it has passed. Each year though, it faces harsh opposition. Congressman Devin Nunes, my opponent, has voted against the Law nine times and failed to vote three times. While John Stewart was able to public shame enough in that body to pass the law, Nunes felt none of it.
