More than 20% of California’s children live in poverty

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

I’ve always been proud to be a Californian, but the fact that nearly 1 out of every 4 children in our state is living in poverty is unacceptable  It is time to acknowledge that something is profoundly wrong when it comes to caring for the youngest among us. It is time to change course.

In 2015, 47.2% of children in the state were poor or near poor while 21.2% of children in California lived in families without enough resources to make ends meet.

I am running for Governor because I am on fire to make the changes necessary to lift Californians out of poverty. Help make a difference and give children a voice by supporting my campaign and contributing $29.20 right now. We must change course because our children cannot wait.

Thank you for your support.

A disturbing pattern

Kamala Harris

A disturbing pattern is emerging in Washington: when someone tries to speak truth to power or hold government officials accountable, they are silenced or outright attacked for doing their jobs.

It happened to my friend Elizabeth Warren when she read a letter from Coretta Scott King objecting to Jeff Sessions’ nomination as Attorney General.

It happened to Claire McCaskill last week when she called out the Republicans for keeping their health care plan a secret.

And it’s happened to me twice this month, when I’ve attempted to question Rod Rosenstein and a “very nervous” Jeff Sessions on the Russian investigation.

It’s an attempt to shut us down, but it won’t work. The women of the Senate will not be silenced when seeking the truth. We will continue to fight back and do our jobs, and we’re going to need your support to keep up the fight.

With your support, I’ll never stop asking the tough questions and pressing for the truth. Not now, not ever. And I know you won’t either.

Thanks for everything you do.

Kamala Harris
U.S. Senator, California
