A true champion for equal pay

*** No candidate for Governor has been endorsed by the CDP ***

This week we celebrated Equal Pay Day with some incredible news — Aileen Rizo won her equal pay case in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, in a victory for women everywhere, a case with national implications.

Aileen is also a candidate for the Assembly in AD 23. I was proud to endorse Aileen earlier in her campaign. She shares our campaign’s vision of a California with equal and fair pay for all, regardless of gender. She’s also part of the new generation of leaders in California who are stepping up to fight for all.

Click here to watch Aileen telling her equal pay story and discussing why it matters.

Best wishes,


Amanda Renteria is running for Governor in California — because its time for new voices who can change the culture of politics. Amanda recently stepped down as Chief of Operations for California’s Department of Justice. She is the daughter of former farmworkers in the Central Valley who went on to attend Stanford and Harvard. Since beginning her career in public service nearing two decades ago, she has served as a High School teacher, a budget analyst in one of California’s largest cities, and became the first Latina Chief of Staff in history of the United States Senate. It’s time to inspire a new generation of leaders and build a California ready for the future. Click here to donate if you agree.

No Title

*** No candidate for Governor has been endorsed by the CDP ***

The census is about making sure everyone is counted — because every person does count!

It shouldn’t be about scoring political points or excluding people who live within our borders — but right now, President Trump is trying to do just that.

Instead of providing an accurate count of the population, President Trump is trying to win political points by demanding the census ask if respondents are citizens. As a result, he’ll drive down participation, leading to lost resources for our communities and less representation for California in Congress.

I’m standing with fellow Americans and political leaders to tell President Trump not to politicize the census, and I’m hoping you’ll stand with us. Will you add your name?

It’s pretty simple: Our system of government, our representation in Congress, funding for our communities, and much more relies on knowing how many people live in our communities.

The census should be a tool of measurement, not intimidation.

But for our neighbors who fear deportation and the possibility that their families could be torn apart, stating their immigration status on an official government document is a high-risk proposition. And if they refuse to participate, it’s our communities that will lose — especially here in California.

We need to build pressure now to ensure that President Trump can’t politicize the census. Will you add your name to the petition, and join our political leaders and tens of thousands of Americans in speaking out?

Thank you,

The Nurses Are Fighters…

*** No candidate for Attorney General has been endorsed by the CDP ***

Improving access to high quality health care has been a foundation of my career. From authoring single payer legislation in Congress to challenging the Trump Administration’s attempts to dismantle the Affordable Care Act to fighting anti-competitive practices among California’s hospitals, I’ve fought on behalf of California’s patients and providers to improve the health of all.

That’s why I’m proud to have earned the endorsement of the California Nurses Association and its partner, National Nurses United.

In their announcement, they noted my many efforts at “guaranteeing healthcare for our patients, our families, and our communities.”

The nurses are fighters, and with their support, I pledge to keep moving California in the right direction and protect the rights of all Californians.

Will you join them and other health care organizations, including the National Union of Healthcare Workers, Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California, SEIU, and California Association of Psychiatric Technicians, in supporting my campaign to remain your Attorney General?
