National Hispanic Heritage Month starts today, and it has never been more important to celebrate the contributions of EVERYONE who lives in California.
In his campaign for president, Republican nominee Donald Trump has unleashed a spirit of hatred. His promises to deport millions of people threaten our families and communities, and his dangerous rhetoric pits immigrants and non-immigrants against each other.
As a California Democrat, I know that we are stronger when we are united. I celebrate my Hispanic heritage, and I celebrate California’s diversity that makes our state great. Will you join me?
Share Our Graphic Celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month
People of Hispanic and Latino heritage continue to face a unique set of obstacles here in California and across the country.
As Speaker of the Assembly, I work for all Californians. That’s why I’m proud the Legislature passed landmark legislation for cleaner air in our poorest communities, expanded parental leave, approved a $15 minimum wage, increased the state earned income tax credit, and righted a 77-year wrong when we passed overtime for farm workers.
Together, we are putting more diplomas into the hands of California college students and taking dangerous firearms out of the hands of criminals.
But we must continue to fight for opportunities for our children, for job security and fair wages, and for the ability to vote without intimidation. Together, we will continue to build California.
As we kick off National Hispanic Heritage Month, I’ll hope you’ll join me in sharing our graphic — because it is our diversity that makes us strong.

As you all know there is a VERY important race before us here in the City of Fresno. For the first time since 1986, we have the opportunity to have a Democrat mayor and someone that has a track record fighting for working families. Let’s make history this November and help us elect Supervisor Perea as the next Fresno Mayor.
Also, lets remember he is the ONLY candidate that has been a champion for neighborhoods south of Fresno, the most vulnerable, and has been a lead on the High Speed Rail project in our city. He is the ONLY one that has a vision to help build a state of the art HSR Station in Downtown, which will bring additional good paying jobs and help revitalize the area. Working together we will continue to build a better future in Fresno for ALL families!!
