Commemorating Black History Month

A message from Senator Kamala D. Harris


Commemorating Black History Month

Friend,

This month is a time to come together and remember how far we have come, and how far we still have to go. Black History Month acknowledges and applauds the contributions and accomplishments across the African American community, and provides us the opportunity to celebrate black excellence in all its forms.

Its leaders like Dr. Carter G. Woodson who have also reminded us that Black History Month should be celebrated all year round.

Throughout the last two years, our community has stood up and fought hard against injustice and in support of a healthier community where all people can live and thrive safely and are provided the opportunity to reach their full potential.

Just last month, we celebrated Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and the words of Coretta Scott King could never be more true. She reminds us that, “struggle is a never-ending process. Freedom is never really won. You earn it and win it in every generation.”

While we recognize Black History Month, let us remember that we must fight each and every day for the best of who we are as a country – for dignity, equity, and justice. We must always remember that as Dr. King did, we are fighting for something and not against something. Because if it’s worth fighting for, it’s a fight worth having.

As Dr. King taught us, “let us realize the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.”

Sincerely,
Kamala

United States Senator 


Speaking Truth:

Watch the moment when the United States Senate agreed unanimously to make lynching a federal crime for the first time in history.

In December of 2018, Senators Harris and Booker took to the Senate floor to ask for unanimous consent to pass the bipartisan Justice for Victims of Lynching Act of 2018, historic legislation that would criminalize lynching, attempts to lynch, and conspiracy to lynch for the first time in American history. The motion passed, marking the first time in American history that federal anti-lynching legislation has been passed by the Senate.

Image/By passing this bill we have offered some long overdue 
justice and recognition to the victims of lynching crimes. Image/

-Senator Kamala D. Harris

Image/

The Justice for Victims of Lynching Act of 2018 amends the United States Code to specify that lynching is a crime under existing federal civil rights statutes. The legislation was originally introduced in June 2018 by Senators Harris, Booker, and Scott, and unanimously passed the Senate Judiciary Committee in October 2018.


Taking Action:

Senator Harris is a longstanding advocate for our African American communities. Here’s some of what the Senator has worked on recently.

This January

CDP logo
This January, as Trump’s shutdown dragged on to be the longest in history, Democrats — led by Speaker Pelosi — came together with working Americans to end it.

Here in California, we swore in one of the most diverse sets of statewide office holders in history, led by Governor Newsom. And we’re thrilled to share that Attorney General Xavier Becerra will be giving the Spanish language response to Trump’s State of the Union. We’re proud that they’ve wasted no time fighting fiercely for our progressive values here in California.

But we must keep up the fight against Trump and the GOP’s racist and hateful attacks on our communities and our values, and defeat them even more resoundingly in 2020.

We’re counting on your support to reach our January end-of-month fundraising goal. Can you chip in $20.20 before midnight tonight?

Thanks for keep up the fight!

It’s been a busy January and a great start to 2019. I kicked off the year by taking the oath of office for my second term as Secretary of State and got right back to work on key initiatives to further strengthen our democracy. As always, I want to keep you updated on what our team is working on.

I DO SOLEMNLY SWEAR…

Thank you for your ongoing support and for believing in my leadership to protect the integrity of our elections, strengthen our democracy, and build California into the model for other states to follow. In my second term, I pledge to continue to work to make our elections more secure and accessible, make it easier for entrepreneurs to invest in and do business in California, to shine more light on money in state politics, to make our state archives more accessible for all Californians, and to make sure every Californian is counted in the 2020 Census.

You can watch my remarks from my Swearing-In here.

FREE THE VOTE

Photo courtesy of AP

Earlier this week, I joined with legislators from across the state to announce our support of the Free the Vote Act. Officially known as ACA 6 and authored by Assemblymember Kevin McCarty (D-Sacramento), this measure would restore voting rights to former inmates who are on parol. While parolees are transitioning back into the community, California invests in them through assistance with education, housing, job training, and healthcare. It is only logical to also engage former inmates in our democracy. Research shows that in jurisdictions where former inmates can easily regain the right to vote, they reoffend at lower rates. So this measure makes sense from both a voting rights and a public safety perspective.

But before the measure can appear on the ballot, it must be approved by the legislature. Read more about the Free the Vote Act here.

CONGRESS HEARS HOUSE RESOLUTION 1

The first priority for the U. S. House of Representatives in the new Congress is House Resolution 1, or H.R. 1, a legislative package that seeks to restore and protect rights, modernize elections, and end partisan gerrymandering, among other reforms. I see it as an opportunity to extend the reforms we have successfully championed in California to voters across the country.

As we expected, Republican opposition in the bill’s first hearing was fierce, but their opposition comes as no surprise — voter suppression has become a critical element of the Republican electoral strategy.

Republican opposition may be strong, but our resolve is stronger. Rest assured that I will engage in support of these voting rights and election security reforms. And I will keep you posted on the progress of the bill. Keep an eye out for our emails and our social media posts for news and updates.

You can read more about the H.R. 1 here, and read more about how California has already taken some of these steps on a state level here.

2020 CENSUS UPDATE

In a win for democracy, last week a federal judge struck down the Trump administration’s proposal to add a citizenship question to the 2020 Census. While not the final word (there are other related lawsuits pending and the Supreme Court is expected to weigh in) last week’s ruling was compelling and encouraging.

Questioning the citizenship of every person in American is nothing but a thinly veiled attempt by the Trump administration to discourage or intimidate diverse communities — like the many in California — from participating in the census. At stake are billions of dollars in federal funding for the next decade and, more fundamentally, our representation in Congress and our voting rights. Accurate census data drives the reapportionment process and is vital to the redistricting process, so we must do everything we can to protect the integrity of the census. A citizenship question would only undermine the very purpose of the census.

As with H.R. 1, stay tuned to our email and social media posts for news and updates on this important issue.

Thank you again for taking a moment to catch up with me. I’m honored and excited to continue to serve as Secretary of State. Together, let’s continue to fight for our democracy.

For California and for our country,

We must resoundingly defeat the GOP in 2020

This past month has been defined by Trump’s reckless government shutdown.                                                                                                                                                                         

 

CDP logo

 

This past month has been defined by Trump’s reckless government shutdown — and the harm he callously inflicted on hundreds of thousands of families held hostage over his racist wall.

But by coming together and speaking out alongside the federal workers affected, Democrats, led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi (CA-21), forced Trump to end the shutdown and temporarily reopen the government.

Still, Trump and the GOP continue to spread their anti-immigrant propaganda as negotiations continue. It is clearer than ever that we must gear up to even more resoundingly defeat Trump and his GOP pawns in 2020.

As we approach our end-of-month fundraising deadline at midnight tomorrow, can you chip in $20.20 right now towards Democratic victories in 2020?

Trump’s government shutdown over his senseless wall represents so much that we are fighting against here at the Party: xenophobia, white supremacy, and a callous disregard for working people.

As California Democrats, we are dedicated towards empowering working families here in our state, and protecting our communities from Donald Trump and the GOP’s assault on our neighbors and our values.

We won big in 2018. And we can win bigger in 2020, but only if we continue to put our heads down and build towards victory.

Before our end-of-month fundraising deadline, click here to chip in $20.20 right now.

Thank you for being a California Democrat.

What we’re fighting for:

 

Yesterday, in front of more than 20,000 people in my hometown of Oakland, we officially kicked off this campaign for president.

It was just a couple blocks from yesterday’s rally that, nearly 30 years ago, as a young district attorney, I walked into the courtroom for the very first time and said five words that would guide my life’s work:

“Kamala Harris, for The People.”

For The People isn’t just our campaign slogan: it’s the heart and soul of our movement, the very reason I wake up every morning ready to fight so hard to win this race. I promise to stand up and fight for YOU.

If you’re with me in this, one of the most important ways you can show your support is by making an early contribution to our campaign. Help us end January strong and show the world what this grassroots team is capable of.

Will you pitch in a contribution of $10 to our campaign? We need to raise $500,000 online before midnight on Thursday, January 31 to stay on track.

If you’ve saved your payment information with ActBlue Express, your donation will go through immediately:

 

 

We’ve taken on many battles together. We’ve won and we’ve lost. But we’ve never stopped fighting — there’s too much on the line. We are at an inflection point in the history of our nation. The American Dream and our American democracy are under attack like never before.

We are called to answer a fundamental question: who are we as Americans? It’s up to us to answer that question — to the world, and to each other. We know we are better than this.

We’re going to need to fight to make it true. Together, we will fight to guarantee that working and middle-class families get a hand up with the largest working and middle-class tax cut in decades. Together, we will fight to declare education a fundamental right, and to guarantee that right with universal pre-k and debt-free college.

We will fight to ensure health care a fundamental human right, and ensure that right with Medicare for All. We will fight to protect our democracy and our institutions against all enemies, foreign and domestic. We will fight for an America where every single parent can send their children to school without fear of a mass killing spree. We will fight for an America where we treat attacks on voting rights, civil rights, women’s rights, and immigrant rights as attacks on our country itself.

Together, we will stand up and fight for every single person who has ever felt vulnerable or voiceless — because it is our duty to one another as Americans to protect one another and lift each other up.

I’ll be blunt: we will only win this race if we’re powered by a true grassroots movement. That means we need to reach every single fundraising goal we set. Right now, we’re up against the first end-of-month goal of our campaign for president: raising $500,000 online before midnight on January 31.

If you can afford to, please pitch in your first contribution to our campaign For The People today.

If you’ve saved your payment information with ActBlue Express, your donation will go through immediately:

 

 

We have a long road ahead of us. But I know that if we work together, we will reclaim the American Dream for every single person in our country.

— Kamala Harris

P.S. Here are some photos from yesterday’s kick-off rally. I’m so grateful to each of you who joined us — in Oakland or online — to celebrate this historic moment.

Let’s send a message that we’ve had enough.

The Republicans must be reminded there are consequences for their actions

TJ Cox for Congress

 

The government shutdown is over (for now) and we finally have an opportunity to get back to work on the issues that matter for our country.

This is good news, but I’ve got to say: I’m mad as hell.

This shutdown should never have happened, and the blame for this is squarely at the feet of the President and his enablers in Congress.

We can’t let this happen again. The Republicans must be reminded there are consequences for their actions, and I need your help to show them there’s a price to be paid:

Republicans are gearing up to retake House seats like mine. Nothing would send a stronger message that we’ve had enough of their shutdowns and hostage-takings than thousands of Democrats chipping in to fight back. Can you make a $10 donation right now?


If you’ve saved your payment information with ActBlue Express, your donation will go through immediately:

This shutdown put 800,000 people out of work. It put our food safety at risk. It made airports less safe.

The worst part is Trump can force a shutdown all over again in three weeks if he wanted to. That’s why it’s so important we keep the pressure up:

Help me send a message the GOP will understand clearly: Chip in $10 to let them know there’s price to pay for their reckless stunts.

Thanks for everything,

TJ Cox

Great news — we just picked up another seat in the state assembly!

This morning, California Assemblymember Brian Maienschein announced he is leaving the Republican Party for the Democratic Party, and I’m so proud to welcome him. The California Democratic Party is stronger than ever, and we now hold 61 seats out of 80 in the Lower Chamber.

Assemblymember Maienschein’s decision shows that he is deeply committed to doing what is best for Californians every day as a lawmaker — and that is fighting against the party of Trump and their dangerous and harmful grabs for power. We couldn’t be happier, that’s why I want you to help me welcome Assemblymember Maienschein to the Democratic Party!

Will you sign on to welcome Brian Maienschein to the Democratic Party?

Our party is growing stronger every day.

There’s hope for our parks. Here’s the latest news…

Dear Parks Supporters,

 

We hope your year is off to a great start! We are reaching out to say hello, and to also give you an update on parks-related news that has occurred in the past month. 

 

As you may have heard, a recent Supreme Court decision in the state of California has put into question the two-thirds passage requirement for citizen-led measures like Measure P. Based on the outcome of this litigation and the fact that 52% of voters approved Measure P, our partners at Fresno Building Healthy Communities have submitted a request to Mayor Lee Brand to declare Measure P approved.

 

Fresno Building Healthy Communities was instrumental in the ‘Yes On P’ campaign and has been a leading voice for Fresno’s parks and youth for many years. Our campaign has not taken its own legal action at this time, but we understand the importance of seeking clarification from the courts on citizen-led ballot initiatives and encourage all Measure P supporters to stay informed on this legal challenge.

For more information on the recent court decision and its connection to Measure P, click here to read today’s Fresno Bee’s article. Fresno Building Healthy Communities is planning an event next week to rally support – please visit their Web site and social media feeds for up-to-date information on this cause.

 

We also want to take a moment to honor the life and legacy of David McDonald, a true community champion and our campaign’s largest donor. A ‘Celebration of Life’ service was held yesterday at William Saroyan Theater and we are grateful to those of you who attended. As you know, David spent his final months dedicated to improving Fresno’s deteriorating parks, and we will be forever inspired by his leadership and vision.

 

Please continue to share your passion for local parks with your networks and help us grow this diverse, dedicated coalition.

Mitch McConnell is ANGRY about this

Democratic Association of Secretaries of State

TAKE ACTION: Tell Mitch McConnell to bring the House Democrats’ voting rights bill up for a vote!


Mitch McConnell HATES the Democrats’ first bill in the House.

He called it a “power grab” and lamented that it will change the way we elect our representatives.

But here’s what McConnell is really saying: Voting rights are BAD for Republicans.

Democrats are championing a sweeping anti-corruption and voting rights bill that would implement automatic voter registration, fully restore the Voting Rights Act, and restore voting rights to former felons who have finished paying their debt to society. The bill also takes aim at dark money to root out corruption.

McConnell is nervous that the days of dark-money flowing into campaign coffers is over, and that their voter-suppression scheme has seen its last days.

McConnell is vowing to kill this bill in the Senate. It’s going to take a massive surge of public pressure to demand McConnell bring this bill up for a vote. Will you sign our petition and put the pressure on McConnell?

10,000 PETITION SIGNATURES NEEDED: Tell Mitch McConnell to let the House Democrats’ voting rights bill come up for a vote!

Election fraud in North Carolina

TJ Cox for Congress


There’s one last House race from the 2018 midterm that hasn’t been called yet.

In North Carolina’s 9th district, Democrat Dan McCready ran a strong campaign against a Trump-endorsed Republican. At first, it looked like Dan came up just short. But new evidence emerged of a GOP-led effort to suppress and “steal” votes from older and African-American voters in Dan’s district. 

The North Carolina Board Elections is investigating election fraud and refuses to certify the race. It’s looking likely that a new election will be held.

Dan McCready could get the news in a matter of weeks that he’s headed for a costly special election. He needs urgent resources to hire staff and get his campaign up and running. That’s where we come in:

Add your name: oppose transgender military ban

 

When the Trump administration banned transgender Americans from serving in the military, we filed a lawsuit to defend transgender servicemembers who honorably serve our nation.

 

While we stopped the ban in a district court, yesterday the Supreme Court ruled it can go into effect while our legal battle continues. This is a disappointing setback, but it’s far from the final verdict. The Court declined to hear our full case immediately, meaning our fight for the thousands of transgender troops bravely serving our country continues.

 

 

The Trump administration’s action isn’t just discriminatory and wrong, we believe it’s illegal.

 

Michael, let’s stand together to defend the rights of all Americans against this administration’s attacks on equality and the rule of law.

 

 

Thank you,
