Leave Those Kids Alone

This Saturday, thousands of courageous students will take to the streets in cities and communities across America in the March for Our Lives. Here in the Central Valley, we have two marches happening – one in Fresno and another in Visalia.

We were honored to be able to host local students for a sign-making party in our campaign office earlier this week. These brave young people are standing up and demanding one thing: the common sense gun reforms our families deserve.

They’re fighting for the right to go to school, or church, or a concert, or a movie theater without fearing for their lives. We, the adults, owe them that – and so much more.

That’s why I’m asking you to add your name in support of these brave young people as they March for their Lives this weekend and fight for overdue action on gun violence. Add your name »

These students are shining a light on the GOP’s inaction on gun reform by exposing the fact that dark money donors like the NRA have bought years of silence from Republicans with millions of dollars in campaign contributions. The GOP has turned a blind eye to gun violence, even as our children are massacred in their schools.

The gun lobby and its cronies are already attacking the Parkland students who started this revolution for their activism. They’re frantically trying to stop them because they know that this time – things are different.

Please, add your name here to let students everywhere know we’re standing with them. They need our support now more than ever. Add your name here »

Thanks for stepping up.

Madame President Pro Tem

Honorable Toni Atkins Takes Leadership of CA Senate

Close the gap CA sends hearty Congratulations to Senator Toni Atkins (San Diego), who this week assumes the key leadership role of California Senate President Pro Tempore. 
As the highest-ranking member of the CA Senate, Atkins will chair the powerful Senate Rules Committee, lead the Senate Democratic Caucus, and represent the Caucus in budget negotiations with the Governor, as part of the “Big Five.” The CA Senate elects a new “Pro Tem” every two years—Atkins was sworn in yesterday.
We know we’re in good hands.
Atkins is not only the first woman and first openly LGBTQ Senate President Pro Tem in California history.

  • Atkins is also only the third person in history to lead both the CA Assembly as Speaker, and the CA Senate as Pro Tem.
  • Atkins has served (briefly!) as both Acting Mayor of San Diego, and Acting Governor of California.
  • As Pro Tem, Atkins will prioritize addressing instances of sexual harassment at the Capitol.
  • Highlight: in 2013, Atkins authored historic AB 154 (Early Access to Abortion). Based on a 5-year pilot project with UCSF, Kaiser Permanente and Planned Parenthood that demonstrated resoundingly positive outcomes, AB 154 allowed advanced practice clinicians (more commonly women than physicians) to offer early abortion services, within the scope of their licenses.
  • This landmark bill contributed to California’s status as the gold standard for reproductive health care, and was the only expansion of reproductive health care access in a year when other states passed a wave of restrictions.

close the gap CA is a statewide campaign to find talented, progressive women to run for open seats in the California legislature in 2018 and 2020. With focus and a targeted strategy, we can ‘close the gap’ and not just the gender gap. When we elect progressive women, we take steps to close the school funding gap, the access gap to affordable health and reproductive care, and the growing gap between the wealthy and those in poverty.

Fighting for safe, clean and healthy communities

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

Many communities in California, especially communities of color, continue to carry more than their share of the burden of pollution and environmental contamination. We have a moral obligation to focus our efforts on fighting for safe, clean and healthy communities for all Californians.

That’s why I’m proud to have earned the endorsement of the California Environmental Justice Alliance Action. CEJA Action builds the political power of communities of color to advance environmentally and socially just policies in California.

CEJA Action joins other environmental justice advocates in supporting my campaign, including:

  • Orson Aguilar, President, Greenlining Institute*
  • Caroline Farrell, Executive Director, The Center on Race, Poverty and the Environment*
  • Laurel Firestone, Co-Executive Director, Community Water Center*
  • Veronica Garribay, Co-Director, Leadership Counsel for Justice and Accountability*
  • Luis Olmedo, Executive Director, Imperial Valley Comite Civico del Valle (CCV)*
  • Vien Truong, CEO, Dream Corps and Director of Green for All*
  • Penny Newman, Founder, Center for Community Action and Environmental Justice (CCAEJ)*

Since taking office, I’ve filed more than a dozen lawsuits aimed at ensuring communities have clear air and clean water and have helped local governments in their fights for environmental justice. Last month, we established a Bureau of Environmental Justice within the environment section of the California Department of Justice. So long as I am Attorney General, we’ll continue to fight for environmental justice.

Thank you for standing with me,

Xavier

California’s Environmental Justice Needs Dave Jones as AG

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

Image may contain: 1 person, smiling, closeup
I am writing to you because we need a strong environmental ally in the California Attorney General’s office who can help us better combat Trump’s regressive policies. Dave Jones is that ally. He has been a champion in fighting for environmental issues including authoring important legislation and programs that have protected our environment.

We need a candidate with a strong environmental track record who will stand up against Trump without delays. That’s why i’m strongly supporting Dave Jones for Attorney General.

And unlike his opponent who’s taken over $20,000 in oil money, Dave Jones is not taking one cent from oil companies.

Dave has pledged to join the investigation of Exxon Mobile for lying about climate change. His opponent, despite environmentalists calls that he do so, refuses to join the New York and Massachusetts Attorneys General investigation of Exxon Mobile.

As Insurance Commissioner, Dave Jones has been a warrior in the fight against climate change. He called on the insurance industry to divest its billions from coal and is leading an international coalition of national insurance regulators that are tackling climate change.

I trust Jones to head up the legal strategy to keep California in the forefront of the fight against climate change. I urge the environmental community and all Californians to join me in supporting Dave Jones for Attorney General.

Dave Jones is a fighter, not a follower. That’s why the overwhelming majority of the Democratic Party voted for Jones at the Convention in San Diego last month.

He has earned our support.

Sincerely,

 

Senator Fran Pavley

Dave Jones for Attorney General
