As we commemorate Dr. King’s birthday this Monday, we recommit ourselves to the hard work of building a California where all people are treated with dignity and respect — both in our relations with one another and in the policies that shape our world.


Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy.

– Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


Dr. King laid the foundation for much of the work California Democrats are able to do today, from strengthening civil rights protections for the historically marginalized to providing a sanctuary for people coming to the United States for the first time, hoping that, maybe here, they can achieve lives of peace and dignity.

Throughout California, there are opportunities to build community and mark this special day. Click here to find one in your area.

May this holiday remind us of our duty to build a party that fully reflects the diversity of California — and of the importance of electing Democrats who will work to fulfill the dream of Dr. King.

New Year’s Resolution

I’m ready to Donate Every Month to fuel another Blue Wave in 2020. Will you join me?

Last year’s Blue Wave put our country on a new course — and it’s all because Democrats like you put in the time and money to turn out voters, win races, and flip seats.

Now we’re heading into an even bigger election year, and the investments we put in now are going to reverberate for years.

So we’re making a New Year’s resolution to give it our all in 2020 — and we hope you’ll do the same by joining our party’s sustaining donor program, DEM2020.

Signing up is easy, and you can choose the donation level that’s right for you. Click here to get started.

For as little as $7 a month, you can help our party:

– expand the number of organizers we have on the ground in battleground districts;
– expand our presence in rural, Latinx, and other communities;
– and provide larger and more effective trainings to build up the skills of our grassroots Democrats.

Announcing the California Young Democrats Ambassadors

I’m thrilled to announce the California Young Democrats (CYD) Ambassadors.

Through this program we have placed two to three CYD members on each Standing Committee as non-voting members. This program builds on the 25 percent of our Standing Committee members that are under the age of 35.

Our CYD Ambassadors will be able to learn from our current committees and gain experience working within our party’s Standing Committee structure. This experience will help them become more valuable contributors to our party and, I hope, leaders of the next generation of Democrats.

The CYD Ambassadorship Program will help us develop the next generation of party leadership. I am proud to announce our first Class of CYD Ambassadors and their assignments.

I look forward to one day hearing that members of the first class of CYD Ambassadors are officers of our party and co-chairs of our Standing Committees.

Thank you,

Rusty Hicks
Chair, California Democratic Party
