Latest news in our lawsuits to save net neutrality

We’re fighting in not one, but three lawsuits right now to preserve the free and open internet.


First, we sued the FCC over its decision to overturn net neutrality — and the FCC just responded to our appeal this week.


Then, California passed a law to protect net neutrality. The Trump administration immediately sued our state and as California’s Attorney General, it’s my job to fight back in court.

Now, I need your support to keep up the fight on net neutrality in November and beyond. Chip in $5 now.

The internet is a utility, like water and electricity. And everyone should have the right to internet access that isn’t manipulated by huge internet companies.


But now the Trump administration is suing California to make sure big internet companies get their way — and with Election Day less than a month away, I can’t stay in this fight without your support.

Contribute $5 now to help me win in November and keep fighting for the free and open internet.

Thank you,



Xavier Becerra -- California Attorney General

It’s go time

It’s go time in our work to power the Big Blue Wave and take back the House.


In just 25 days, California Democrats will head to the polls to throw out Trump’s Congressional Clones and take back the House, so Congress can once again fight for our California values.


But before then, we’ve got work to do. To keep up the fight and win, we need grassroots supporters like you to keep up your support.


Can you chip in $20.18 or more right now towards our work to power the Big Blue Wave and take back Congress?

Right now, we have 80 organizers spread across every Republican-held congressional district in the state, and I promise you they are working overtime to turn these seats blue.


But to turn out the necessary votes on November 6, we have to make sure these organizers — and our incredible volunteers — have the resources they’ll need. That means money for clipboards, printer toner (for walk packets), lots and lots of coffee, and more.


It’s crucial we come together as California Democrats by each chipping in what we can, so we have the resources necessary to declare victory this November.


Chip in $20.18 or more right now, so we can power the Big Blue Wave and take back Congress.


Democratically Yours,

Press Release: National Coming Out Day

For Immediate Release: Thursday, October 11, 2018
Contact: John Vigna, 916.212.0357

Statement of CDP Chair Eric C. Bauman on National Coming Out Day 2018

Los Angeles– The following is a statement from Eric C. Bauman, the first openly gay Chair of the California Democratic Party: 

On behalf of California Democrats, I celebrate each person who takes the opportunity of National Coming Out day to break the silence and stigma of the closet, and to fulfill their unique and cherished place as members of the LGBTQ community and as a full member of our beautiful and diverse state. 

California Democrats fight every day to create equality for members of the LGBTQ community and to create a state where every person can live their truth openly and proudly.  

From history makers like Harvey Milk to todays generation of groundbreaking leaders, California Democrats are unwavering in our commitment to ensure LGBTQ people are welcomed and embraced at everywhere — in school classrooms and playgrounds, on college campuses, in the workplace, in healthcare, and in our golden years.

Celebrating marriage with my partner, Michael, was the fulfillment of our lifelong dream.  I am personally committed to ensuring that every gay person has the opportunity to fulfill their dreams – and today, this especially means ensuring equality and the safety of members of the transgender community. 

And I promise this California Democrats will take every opportunity to fight the hateful, divisive and backward anti-LGBT agenda of the Trump Administration, because we have never been more energized in the fight for civil rights than we are today.

For every person considering coming out today, tomorrow, or the next day know that your courage makes it possible for others to do the same.  And know that your vote matters, is valued by the Democratic Party, and is essential to creating the Blue Wave that will move us forward and allow us to #TakeItBack this November.

Falling behind in California’s 21st

TJ Cox for Congress

Here’s a quick update from TJ Cox HQ:


Earlier this week, mail-in ballots hit mailboxes across the state of California. From here on out — Team TJ is going to be working each day to lock in votes from supporters, because gaining ground early will be essential to our path to victory.


As TJ’s finance director, it’s my job to make sure we have the resources we need to turn out Democrats and launch more TV ads to spread TJ’s message in these final weeks. Right now, we’re falling well short of our target.



CA-21 Democratic Turnout Fund
Target: $30,000 (Sunday midnight)
Raised so far: $16,875

Suggested donation from $12 or more >>
