Since the last general election, more than 380 bills have been introduced across the country that would make it harder for Americans to vote.

Since the last general election, more than 380 bills have been introduced across the country that would make it harder for Americans to vote. These Republican voter suppression bills aim to restrict the options that make voting more convenient and accessible, like early voting and vote by mail.

The impacts of these bills go beyond just one state — it hurts all of us. Michael, we cannot stand by and allow the Republican Party to coordinate another attack on our most fundamental rights.

Vice President Kamala Harris is leading the way to unite all Democrats across the country to protect our voices at the ballot box and prevent discriminatory changes to voting. But Michael, we can’t do it alone. That’s why CADEM is preparing to relaunch our Truth Squad and Voter Protection Team programs to combat misinformation.

As a part of this effort, CADEM is relying on our people power and small dollar grassroots donations to ensure that we can continue the fight against the Republican Party’s disinformation campaign. So as we stand in solidarity to protect our voting rights, we are asking:

Can you invest $15 to help Democrats defeat this Republican effort?

Parents denied health coverage

“California bill would let adults add parents to health plans”

 

Team,

 

Imagine if your parents couldn’t get health insurance coverage. For tens of thousands of Californians, there is no need to imagine: They’re caring for an elderly parent unable to get coverage right now. 

 

When Esperanza Chavez, a 74-year-old diabetic living in San Francisco, needed eye surgery in April, her daughter, Laura, paid cash for the procedure. It cost $15,000… for just one eye. The Chavez family couldn’t afford both. 

 

I’m fighting to change that by sponsoring the Parent Healthcare Act (AB 570) — a groundbreaking bill that would make California the first state in the nation to allow adult children to add their dependent parents onto their healthcare plan. 

 

I’ve been working to expand healthcare for my entire career. Chip in now to support our campaign to ensure we can keep fighting

 

The Chavez family isn’t alone. If the Parent Healthcare Act becomes law, it’s estimated that as many as 80,000 Californian seniors — currently ineligible for Medicare and Medicaid — could get health insurance coverage. 

 

The insurance industry is already pushing back on this legislation, but I won’t back down. EVERY person deserves healthcare, especially our seniors. 

 

When we were young, our parents were there for us and took care of us. Now it’s on us to take care of them when they need it the most. Join me in supporting the Parent Healthcare Act and together, let’s continue to fight to expand healthcare coverage for all! 

 

Onward, 

 

Ricardo

People can’t pay rent or eat with just good intentions

We know that paid internship programs like ours are integral for building the bench of young California Democratic leaders.

Did you know that some of the CADEM staff got their start as young political interns?

Our Communications Director Shery Yang got her start as an intern for John Burton (our former Chair!)

Our Political Director Ben Seinfeld and Training Director Vincent Jones got their start as interns for the DNC.

We know that paid internship programs like ours are integral for building the bench of young California Democratic leaders. Every $15 donated means that we can keep one of our brightest interns employed and gaining valuable experience for just a bit longer!

Grassroots donations build our progressive bench. If you’ve saved your payment information with ActBlue Express, your donation will go through immediately:

Paid internship programs are critical for the growth of our Party because people can’t pay rent or eat with just good intentions. Our Chair fought to raise the wages of nearly 1 million working Angelenos to $15 an hour and passed a progressive ballot measure to build more affordable housing and create good union jobs.

We value our staff and that means making sure each and every intern gets $15/hr for their labor. Can you help us build the bench of CA Democrats with a $15 donation today?

Paid interns build a more inclusive Party because they bring in student organizers and activists — everyone can build valuable connections and gain more professional experience.
