Thank you for joining CADEM’s first Statewide Officers Town Hall on Saturday, June 5, 2021. During the Town Hall, we had the opportunity to discuss our collective vision which is built on a values-driven mission to empower Californians and uplift voices reflecting our diversity through intentional, transparent and inclusive leadership.

Our joint decision-making as an executive team will be focussed on five primary areas of our work that requires an equal voice from each Statewide Officer: culture, communications, appointments, finance, and programmatic priorities. Furthermore, we recognize that our party is only as strong as our grassroots leadership and infrastructure. To amplify our collective work, CADEM is committed to actively engaging and supporting our Party’s internal leadership in every corner of California. To deepen our relationships, every officer will connect with specific internal party leaders and focus on the following:

Chair Rusty Hicks:

  • Caucuses & Statewide Charter Organizations
  • DNC Membership
  • Culture Change
  • Training
  • Organizing
  • Finance

Vice Chair Betty Yee:

  • Regional Directors
  • Caucuses & Statewide Charter Organizations
  • County Committees & Democratic Clubs
  • DNC Membership
  • Organizing

Vice Chair David Campos:

  • Regional Directors
  • Caucuses & Statewide Charter Organizations
  • County Committees & Democratic Clubs
  • Communications
  • Organizing

Controller April Verrett:

  • Caucuses & Statewide Charter Organizations
  • Culture Change
  • Training
  • Finance

Secretary Melahat Rafiei:

  • DNC Membership
  • Caucuses & Statewide Charter Organizations
  • Communications
  • Finance

Looking ahead, CADEM is preparing as we face a number of unique challenges: a Republican recall, a delayed redistricting process, and a tough election cycle. However, each unique challenge provides our Party with an unprecedented opportunity to engage, organize and uplift the voices of diverse communities across California.

As we continue to hold these important conversations, we’d like to invite you to our next Statewide Officers Town Hall. We hope every CADEM Delegate will join us at our next virtual community and conversation.

 

Save the date to join us in building a progressive bench at CADEM!

Let’s work together to end this pandemic

Vaccinating as many U.S. adults as possible before July 4th will require everyone to pitch in.

YOU'RE INVITED: VACCINATION MONTH OF ACTION.

After more than a year of unspeakable loss and incredible resiliency, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Under President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’ leadership, our nation is making progress against the Covid-19 pandemic. Today, California has one of the lowest coronavirus transmission levels in the U.S. Students are returning to classrooms. Weddings are resuming. We’re getting to hug our loved ones again.

But the truth is, we’ve got a long way to go to overcome this pandemic. 40% of U.S. adults have not yet gotten a vaccine. Many people continue to have questions about the vaccines or challenges getting vaccinated, especially in the communities hit hardest by the pandemic.

At the same time, communities of color continue to get vaccinated at lower rates than their white counterparts. That’s why California Democrats are joining forces with Made to Save in support of HHS’s National Vaccine Month of Action, which goes from June 5 – July 4th.

Find an Event »

When we rise together, there’s absolutely nothing we can’t accomplish. 

Vaccinating as many U.S. adults as possible before July 4th will require everyone to pitch in — to make calls, send texts, and talk to people face-to-face in our communities — answering questions and spreading the word about why it’s so important to get vaccinated.

Together, we can do this.

In Solidarity,

-California Democrats

CADEM Statewide Officers Town Hall Recap

[URGENT] We have some work to do…

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

California Democratic Party Logo

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?

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.
