He’s also focused on securing and growing the Valley’s water supply.

TJ Cox is the Democratic Representative in CA21

Phil Arballo is the Democratic Nominee in CA22

Growing up in Fresno, Phil learned the Central Valley values of sacrifice, hard work, and commitment from a young age.

He was raised by his single mother who worked long hours to make sure her children had the opportunity to get ahead. He was the first in his family to attend college, working minimum wage jobs to pay his own way through Fresno State.

Today, Phil runs his own small business in financial services. He’s a fixture in the local civic community through organizations like the Central California Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and as chairman of Fresno’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee. He’s always willing to go the extra mile for his community.

Kim’s life experiences include being a USAF Veteran, an aircraft mechanic, a systems engineer and a single working mom. While working full time, she went to college and earned my bachelor’s degree in Professional Aeronautics.

Kim Mangone time spent as a systems engineer has provided me with the skills I need to not only identify but to find solutions to the problems and challenges in our district.

The  movie 13th: From Slave to Criminal with One Amendment is currently available to view FREE from NetFlix on YouTube event if you don’t have a NetFlix subscription

Daren Miller recommends this film for all who want to better understand race in the  US.  

An examination of the U.S. prison system looks at how the U.S. history of racial inequality drives the high rate of incarceration in America. This piercing, Oscar-nominated film won Best Documentary at the Emmys, the BAFTAs and the NAACP Image Awards.
The title of Ava DuVernay’s extraordinary and galvanizing documentary refers to the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which reads, “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States.” The progression from that second qualifying clause to the horrors of mass criminalization and the sprawling American prison industry is laid out by DuVernay with bracing lucidity. With a potent mixture of archival footage and testimony from a dazzling array of activists, politicians, historians, and formerly incarcerated women and men, DuVernay creates a work of grand historical synthesis.

Action for the environment: 
From Fresnans Against Fracking and the Sierra Club, Ron Martin writes:  
There are many environmental bills in the California legislature this session that the Sierra Club is following in the California legislature, several addressing petroleum and climate change.  
Sierra Club Energy Committee asks you to contact your State Senator:
SB 3214 – fines for off-shore oil spills SUPPORT  

Sierra Club  Energy Committee asks you to contact your State Assemblyman: 
AB 3030 & AB 2287 – compostable alternatives to plastic SUPPORT
AB 3279 puts requirements on plaintiffs making it harder to file CEQA lawsuits OPPOSE
AB 1002 – reduction of electric vehicle (EV) charger plans OPPOSE 

Ron Martin, (559) 222-5524 – landline
American Friends Service Committee, AFSC reflects on good news: 
The Supreme Court announced groundbreaking decisions to protect LGBTQ people from employment discrimination, preserve California’s sanctuary state law, and uphold Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) for hundreds of thousands of immigrants in the U.S.—all while people across the country continue to march in support of Black Lives Matter and demand systemic change, including through yesterday’s powerful actions commemorating Juneteenth. Read AFSC’s statement on DACA.   

The Supreme Court just upheld DACA. Now it’s time for Congress to act: Tell your senators to provide permanent protections for DACA recipients and create a roadmap to citizenship for all immigrants   

Supreme Court rejects Trump administration’s bid to void California sanctuary state law: The law—which limits cooperation between local police and Immigration and Customs Enforcement—has had a significant impact, says AFSC’s Pedro Rios. (KPBS)

Represent! – A Non-Partisan Beginners Guide To Running For Local Office / Register and Help Get The Word Out

Represent! – A Non-Partisan Beginners Guide To Running For Local Office / Register and Help Get The Word Out

Central Valley Partnership,

Together with sponsoring and supporting organizations, we are hosting a candidate training workshop. 

(Our co-sponsoring organizations include the Dolores Huerta Foundation, FMKT Central Labor Council, Sierra Club-Tehipite Chapter & Valley Voices.)

 

Titled Represent! – A Non-Partisan Beginners Guide To Running For Local Office, the program has three parts:

  • A series of inspiring videos featuring advice from recently elected representatives from the valley
  • An accessible, practical handbook detailing a ten-point framework covering: campaign strategy, candidate assessment, building your team, candidate development, finance, fundraising, field, marketing, campaign support, and governing.
  • A webinar offering the expertise of local representatives, community leaders and campaign consultants.

The training is free to the public and its materials are open-source.

 

The webinar is scheduled for next Thursday, July 9th starting at 5:30pm. 

It is necessary to register for the webinar at:  https://centralvalleypartnership.org/trainings/

 

The entire training is to prepare people to run for local office. Its information will be useful to anyone wanting to more effectively engage in the political process, and can also be seen as a hands-on civic engagement practicum. 

 

Please share this important opportunity. All ages are welcome – if you know young adults who are politically savvy, natural leaders or just care about our communities, have them sign up or watch with you as a family.

 

We are honored to have Dezie Woods-Jones, the founder and statewide president of Black Women Organized for Political Action (BWOPA) open our July 9th webinar, followed by a panel of African American women who will share their experiences, perspectives and wisdom as elected leaders. Additional panels and speakers will offer advice on campaigns, youth engagement, financial reporting and other topics.

 

The opening video of the training has been posted to the Partnership’s Facebook Page at: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=1375262162666598

 

Feel welcome to take a look at the opening video, listen to the motivations of some of our recently elected representatives, be inspired, share it, and sign up.

 

We understand that the transformation of the valley’s political culture is underway, do your part to hasten it by getting involved – there is a role for everyone.

 

A flyer that can be shared is attached.

 

In solidarity,

We confirmed our delegation to the Democratic National Convention — 495 delegates strong (and 35 Alternates) — by a virtual voting process.

Anchored in Milwaukee, the 2020 Democratic National Convention will be a “Convention Across America,” and California will play a key role.

That’s why, by joint agreement between the Sanders and Biden campaigns, a vote from our delegates, and with the support of Governor Newsom, a unity team of Co-Chairs will lead our delegation: Congressmember Barbara Lee, Congressmember Ro Khanna, and Los Angeles County Supervisor Hilda Solis.

'Unity is how we win, and I'm honored to help lead Democrats toward victory for working people in November. Si se puede!' - Hilda Solis, Los Angeles Supervisor. Support CA Democrats'Together, we proudly reprsent the most progressive, diverse, and enlightened state in the union. Onward to victory for the people in November!' - Baraba Lee, Congresswoman. Support CA Democrats.I am blown away by the mobilization of the progressive base. California will lead the way in pushing for a bold profgressive platform and winning in November' - Ro Khanna, Congressman. Support CA Democrats

Winning in November is about saving our democracy and building a brighter future for all Americans. And with only 126 days to Election Day, there’s not a moment to waste → DONATE NOW » These virtual votes — and our upcoming virtual Democratic Convention — are a reminder that we’re living in unprecedented times.

But we can’t let the coronavirus or anything else distract us from our #1 goal as California Democrats: Defeating Republicans like Mitch McConnel and President Trump at the ballot box this November.

To do that, we’ve assembled a dynamic and diverse team of California Democrats possible to represent us at the Democratic Convention.

We don’t have much time, and there’s so much work to do.

Let’s ensure California Democrats do their part in unseating Trump and safeguarding our democracy.

Onward!
