We’re suing to stop President Trump’s new domestic gag rule

The Trump administration just announced a domestic “gag rule,” which will gut Title X funding for health providers like Planned Parenthood that offer — or even mention — abortion services as part of a full spectrum of women’s reproductive health care.

This new policy will make it difficult or even impossible for millions of Californians to get the preventative health care they need. So we filed a new lawsuit today to protect Californians’ access to health care.

Can I count on your support as we fight the Trump administration’s domestic “gag rule” in court? Chip in $5 to stand with me now.

This isn’t the first time we’ve sued the Trump administration for attacking access to basic reproductive health care — we fought back and won when the Trump administration tried to let employers deny their employees access to birth control. We’re not sitting on the sidelines now either.

Title X funding covers birth control, cancer screenings and more. This new rule will interfere with women’s private medical decisions and make it harder for Californians to access essential and often life-saving care.

I need you with me, Michael. Contribute $5 now to stand with in the fight to defend women’s health and rights.

Thank you,

Xavier

Sign my petition demanding action on gun violence

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

 
 

I have really big news. Last week, the House of Representatives passed the first major piece of legislation on gun violence in a generation. It’s called HR 8. Now, it heads to the Senate. 
This bill would mandate background checks for every gun purchase in this country. It goes a long way toward making sure people with criminal records or a history of mental illness can’t get their hands on a gun. 
Right now, I need your help in making sure this bill gets a vote on the Senate floor. We know the NRA and the gun lobby will do everything in their power to stop it. That’s why we need to come together to show the strength of our movement.
We can’t lose sight of how important this moment is in our history, and how hard we have worked to get here. 
A little more than one year ago, the students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School led millions of people in marches across the country to demand action on gun violence. 
And throughout 2018, people in communities across our nation registered voters, knocked on doors, and organized to elect leaders who are willing to stand up to the gun lobby and do what’s right. 
Last week, new members of Congress like Rep. Lucy McBath — who became an activist for social justice after her son was shot and killed — voted to pass the first significant legislation on gun violence in 20 years. 
This is a great step forward. When we work together, arm in arm, to organize and raise our voices to demand action, we can win. But our fight is not yet done. I need you to add your voice right now:
This is just the first of many fights to come in our work to end gun violence. I know that by working together, organizing on every block in every community of this country, we can take on the gun lobby and win. 
Thanks for standing with me on this. I’ll see you out there. 
For The People,
— Kamala Harris

Sisters and Brothers – 

We’re going to win this election not because we have a super PAC funded by billionaires. We’re going to win this election because we will put together the strongest grassroots coalition in the history of American politics.

That is the message we sent in Brooklyn at our first official campaign event.

And that is the message we sent last night in Chicago at the second rally of our campaign. 

While Donald Trump wants to divide us up by the color of our skin, our country of origin, our gender, our religion and our sexual orientation – we are going to do exactly the opposite. We are going to bring our people together – black, white, Latino, Native American, Asian American, gay and straight, young and old, men and women, native born and immigrant.

Because when we do that, we are going to finally create an economy and a government which works for all Americans, and not just the 1 percent.

In solidarity,

Team Bernie


 
The wealthy and the powerful will do everything possible to defend their financial interests. They have unlimited money, but we have each other. Not just Bernie – us.

Add your name to say you are committed to do whatever it takes to win this election, beat Donald Trump, and elect a government that works for all of us, not just the wealthy few.

The three words that led me to first run for office

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

 
Warren for President

We won in 2012 because we got organized, stuck together, and built a grassroots movement. That’s the only way we’ll win in 2020, too. Chip in $3 or more to join our fight.

 

 

I’ve been on the road in eastern Iowa the past two days, talking to people face-to-face at organizing events, coffees, and house parties about how we’ll make big, structural change.

And a memory kept popping up in my head about how I decided to run for office for the first time.

It was the summer of 2011. I’d just come home to Massachusetts after helping set up the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Some people were talking about me running for Senate. That wasn’t on my bucket list, my shopping list, or any other list. But I knew it might be a chance to keep protecting the consumer agency and keep fighting against a system rigged to benefit the wealthy and well-connected.

So I decided to dip my toe in the water, just to find out whether I could do even the simplest sort of campaigning without falling down. If I couldn’t, then there really wasn’t anything to decide.

In mid-August, I started meeting with small groups of people in living rooms and backyards around the state. A few days into this test run, I went to a gathering in New Bedford — an old whaling town fighting to build a future for its hard-working families.

It was one of those steamy, end-of-summer mornings when your hair frizzes and your shirt sticks to your back about 60 seconds after you step outside. Different from Iowa in March, but people showed up for the same reason — to talk about how we could make Washington work for working people, not just the rich and powerful.

I spoke for about fifteen minutes about the hollowing out of America’s middle class. Then I took questions for a while. Afterwards, some people stayed to ask for a picture, and others wanted to urge me to run, to offer advice, or just to wish me luck as I figured out what to do.

As the crowd thinned out a bit, a woman in her mid-fifties walked over. She stopped a few steps away from me and said, “I walked two miles to get here.” Okay, she had my attention.

She dropped her voice a notch. “I walked because I don’t have a car that runs. I don’t have a car that runs because I don’t have a job.”

As we stood facing each other, she laid out her life in just a few sentences: She’d worked one job or another since she was seventeen, put herself through school, had two master’s degrees, and taught herself computer programming. But she’d been out of work for a year and a half. She’d applied, she’d volunteered, she’d gone everywhere, but nothing.

Then she stopped, took a step forward, and lowered her voice to a whisper, as if she didn’t want to hear what she was about to say: She didn’t know if she was ever going to get a real job again.

I held out both hands, and she took them. We stood there, not moving, just holding hands.

She looked me straight in the eye and said she was there because she was running out of hope. She’d read about me for a long time, and she was there to see me in person, to tell me that she wanted me to fight for her. She didn’t care how hard it got — she wanted to know that I was going to fight.

I looked back at her and said, “Yes, I’ll fight.”


I didn’t really think about the size of the commitment I was making or what it would cost me or my family. I simply thought, I can’t just stand here and cry. I can’t just walk out on her. She asked for a commitment, and I made it. Fight — there was nothing else to say and nothing else to do.

I’m still in the same fight. That’s why I ran for the Senate, and that’s why I’m running for president. We won in Massachusetts because we got organized, stuck together, and built a grassroots movement. That’s the only way we’ll win in 2020, too.

I’ll keep fighting for people in every corner of this country — but I can’t do it alone. Chip in $3, or whatever you can, so we can keep building something incredible together.

The soul of our nation

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

 
 

TULSI 2020

 
 

Aloha friends,

On September 16th, 1963, four black girls were killed in a targeted bombing in Birmingham, Alabama at the 16th Street Baptist Church as they got ready for choir: Addie May Collins, Carol Denise McNair, Cynthia Wesley and Carole Robertson.

We must never forget them. And why they were murdered.

This weekend, I was honored to join Rep. John Lewis and others on a civil rights pilgrimage in Alabama. Standing in the 16th Street Baptist Church, and kneeling before the memorial marking the location where the bomb exploded, I was overwhelmed with emotion.

When I volunteered to serve in the Army National Guard and deployed along with my brothers and sisters in arms — we made a choice to put our lives on the line to defend our country, our freedom, and our people. Addie, Carol, Cynthia and Carole never made that choice. Yet they were casualties in a battle for the soul of our nation.

We later crossed the Edmund Pettus bridge, from Selma to Montgomery, led by my colleague Rep. John Lewis, as he and others who walked those very steps on Bloody Sunday in 1965 shared their stories. As they marched peacefully and courageously for the right to vote, they were met with tear gas, beaten, and bloodied. They did not fight back — they held their heads high, and continued on, keeping their eye on the prize.

Throughout the weekend we visited places where slaves were held and traded, a memorial commemorating those murdered by lynching, and prayed together in churches that served as the heart of the civil rights movement.

Since the founding of our country — through treaties made and broken with indigenous communities, through slavery and abolition, through strikes and labor organizing, through Civil Rights and Equal Rights — we have sought to answer a single question: will we rise up, calling on our better angels, to fulfill a promise for freedom, justice, equality and opportunity for all? Or will we sink into our worst instincts, and allow ourselves, our communities and our nation to be ruled by hatred, greed, self-interest, bigotry and fear?

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and those like Rep. John Lewis who joined him in the fight for Civil Rights chose to put themselves on the front lines of that battle. Inspired by Gandhi’s movement of nonviolent resistance, Dr. King moved mountains simply by standing still. In the face of hatred, he loved. In the face of fear, he inspired courage. In the face of violence, he endured and pressed on.

He spoke out forcefully against our involvement in Vietnam, calling out a military industrial complex that poured billions of dollars into killing people overseas while neglecting to take care of the needs of the American people.

Today, we face a world where everyone is on the front lines. Every child, every mother, every doctor, every teacher — all of us are brought to the front lines of the new Cold War and the threat of nuclear catastrophe.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

When we have faith the size of a mustard seed in the promise of America, in those better angels that live in all of our hearts, and in the power of our voices when we stand united — we can move mountains. We can invest in our communities, in our people, in our children and in our future.

We can rise up and build a future that puts people before profits, that recognizes the dignity and rights of every human being, that bends the arc of the moral universe away from war and injustice and towards peace and justice for all.

With warmest aloha,

Tulsi

Something powerful happened in New Hampshire

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

 
 
Friend,
While campaigning in New Hampshire, a voter got Cory talking about his dad’s battle with Parkinson’s, and how his mom took on a new role: primary caregiver.

It’s a powerful moment that you’ve gotta see.

Tweet from Cory: My mother took care of my father when he was ill with Parkinson's onset dementia. We have to do a better job of tackling the problems associated with neurological diseases--better research, better health care, better support for caregivers.

Caring for a sick loved one is one of the hardest jobs out there. Like many family caregivers, Cory’s mom took on this role often at the expense of her own health — both emotionally and physically. We’ve got to do more to help out caregivers.
That starts with us, right now.
Let’s show these selfless Americans that they’re not alone and that they deserve access to resources and training to properly care for their family members. Sign our campaign’s petition to make sure supporting family caregivers is a strong part of the Democratic Party platform.
Thanks,
Alex

Thank you: our first end of month goal

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

 
Amy for America
empowered by Salsa



I want to give you an update on our ambitious end of month fundraising goal for February. We did it — we raised over $500,000 from grassroots donors in all 50 states!

This is an incredible accomplishment that YOU made happen. From Maureen in Maine to Catherine in Wisconsin to Juan in Hawaii, this team stepped up. Like I’ve said before, this campaign is a homegrown one. How far we go will be determined by your support.

Right now, you’re showing the country that we have real momentum.

Together, we have the opportunity to do great things for America. We can work to make universal health care a reality. We can bring down the rising costs of prescription drugs. We can put digital rules of the road in place.

I promised to always tell you the truth, so I won’t sugarcoat it — this campaign won’t be easy. We aren’t going to have the most money. We probably won’t have the most TV airtime. And we aren’t going to have some political machine to save us.

If I have your support though, none of that matters. We can build a real, lasting campaign based on ideas, our shared love of country, and a commitment to getting things done. Hitting this first end of month goal was a giant step in the right direction.

For now, I just want to say thank you so much for your support. I couldn’t do this without you.

Thanks,

Amy

We did it

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

 
 

Thanks to you and your support, Fresno dem club, we reached our important February fundraising goal. With your help, we’re building a strong campaign from the ground up.

Yesterday, we spent time on the campaign trail in Las Vegas — of course, we had to stop for some tacos and conversations with Nevadans.

Then, I joined Star Jones for a conversation at the Black Enterprise Women of Power Summit. My main takeaway: leadership should not be about using your power to belittle and bully. It should be about lifting people up.

We then headed to our Las Vegas town hall, where more than 700 Nevadans joined us for a conversation about the big challenges facing our country right now — and how we all must come together at this inflection point in our nation’s history to do what is right.

We spoke about combating rising health care costs and what it will take to pass Medicare for All. How we are fighting for an America where you only have to work one job to pay the bills, where hard work is rewarded, and where any worker can join a union.

And I spoke directly to a young girl in the audience who wondered what it’s like to run for president. I told her that running for president is very uplifting because I get to meet the angels who walk among us: the people who could be doing a million other things but they choose to come to a town hall or get engaged. 

Your contributions are making it possible for us to build a winning campaign — and I am so grateful for your support.

For The People,

— Kamala
