We can’t let this happen

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

It’s never been more clear that Fresno desperately needs a change: Fresno Bee: “Fresno Mayor … will appoint an interim police chief from within the department after he failed to hire a permanent chief.” As Councilmember Miguel Arias said, Mayor Lee Brand’s refusal to appoint a new police chief shows a lack of leadership — and even further, a lack of care for the people of Fresno. – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

It’s never been more clear that Fresno desperately needs a change:

Fresno Bee: Fresno Mayor … will appoint an interim police chief from within the department after he failed to hire a permanent chief

As Councilmember Miguel Arias said, Mayor Lee Brand’s refusal to appoint a new police chief shows a lack of leadership — and even further, a lack of care for the people of Fresno.

A police chief is responsible for countless important things — dealing with crime, fixing delayed response times to 911 calls, and monitoring excessive use of force by officers.

These are not small tasks, and the community should have a say in who is entrusted with this responsibility.

Mayor Brand has failed to execute this process in the way it should work. That’s why it’s never been more crucial to have someone like Andrew in office, who will be transparent and compassionate when making important choices. Will you chip in toward Andrew’s campaign today so we can move toward a better Fresno?

Our planet is on fire and our president is in denial. There’s more than one gun for every soul in America. Hate crimes are on the rise three years straight. There are little kids — taken from their parents — in cages, sleeping on concrete floors under tin foil blankets.

Our planet is on fire and our president is in denial.

There’s more than one gun for every soul in America.

Hate crimes are on the rise three years straight.

There are little kids — taken from their parents — in cages, sleeping on concrete floors under tin foil blankets.

I don’t accept this as our fate. In fact, I believe this moment of maximum peril may also be our greatest moment of promise.

We can unleash the ingenuity and political will of millions of Americans to meet the existential threat of climate change before it’s too late. We can get assault weapons out of our stores and off our streets. We can turn the dangerous tides of hate before they grow even stronger. And we can rewrite our immigration laws in our own image. 

It’s important that I said “we” here, because I can’t do any of these things alone. No one person can. Only we, together, can do them. And only if we build a big, bold, inclusive movement. One that goes everywhere, fights for everyone, and doesn’t write anyone off or take anyone for granted. 

For any of this to be possible, millions of us have to give it our all and give it for all of us. Are you in? You can join us right now by donating here:

Will you sign on to join me in calling on the Senate to #RaiseTheWage for 34 Million Americans?

Many of us know people working two or three jobs just to get by. Raising the federal minimum wage would put more money in the pockets of hardworking families and help lift more than a million Americans out of poverty. 

I was proud to join union workers and Dolores Huerta this week to call for fair wages for workers in the Central Valley. 

In Congress, I will fight to raise the federal minimum wage, pass universal healthcare, and support a workers’ bill of rights.

The US Senate can take the first step by passing the Raise the Wage Act to give 34 Million Americans making minimum wage a raise. 

ADD YOUR NAME — Tell the Senate to pass the Raise the Wage Act immediately »

Legalize it

Legalize it

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

 

On my first day as President, I will pardon every person imprisoned for a low-level, non-violent marijuana offense and I would high five them on their way out of jail.

friend —

On my first day as President, I will pardon every person imprisoned for a low-level, non-violent marijuana offense and I would high five them on their way out of jail.  If you are with me — add your name here.

Marijuana is still classified as a Schedule I narcotic, putting it in the ranks of heroin.  Frankly, the criminalization of it is stupid and racist.

Even though cannabis is now legal for adult use in 11 states and the District of Columbia, there have been hundreds of thousands of Americans incarcerated for it, particularly targeted are people of color.  Our criminal justice system is broken.

We need to resolve the ambiguity and legalize marijuana at the federal level.  This would improve safety, social equity, and generate tens of billions of dollars in new revenue based on legal cannabis businesses.

Add your name if you support the legalization of marijuana and expunging the federal convictions of all marijuana-related use.

If we legalize cannabis, then we’ll:
