Third Eye Blind Lead Singer Comes to 22nd District Urging Residents to Vote

Third Eye Blind Lead Singer Comes to 22nd District Urging Residents to Vote

Fresno, CA (October 26th, 2018) Stephan Jenkins of Third Eye Blind will headline a FREE acoustic concert in Clovis, CA on November 1, 2018 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m for Central Valley residents. The concert will be held at a location dubbed “Camp Janz” on the corner of Herndon and Academy. The location has been a target in a series of vandalisms to Janz campaign signs.

 

Andrew Janz said, “We’re very excited to have Stephan coming to the district in our final push before Election Day. He heard that Nunes was begging for money from Bay area donors so he decided to reach out and offered to bring his talents down here to urge Central Valley voters to vote. Stephan knows the importance of not only our race in the 22nd district, but also this election.”

 

The concert will also feature free food and drinks. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own chairs. For more information and to get free tickets, visit here: CAMP JANZ

Andrew Janz was raised in Visalia and is running for Congress against Devin Nunes in California’s 22nd Congressional District. Andrew’s campaigning on water for the valley, more jobs, protecting social security and medicaid, and fighting corruption in Washington.

the Valley needs a healthcare champion

Dear Friend,

As this month comes to a close, it is important to remember that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. About 1 in every 8 women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime, and over 1,800 women in the Central Valley are diagnosed with breast cancer each year.

With the Valley experiencing a dire shortage of primary care physicians and nurses, it is important to detect this devastating disease before it causes symptoms or complications. Healthcare advocates encourage women over the age of 40 to undergo regular screening tests. For more information about warning signs and other recommendations, click here.

As a healthcare advocate, I have worked to increase access to quality healthcare for the Valley. In the State Senate I look forward to continuing that work to attract and train more doctors and nurses right here in the Valley, and will fight any efforts to reduce funding for Medicare and Medi-Cal. 

Your support will make a big difference for Valley families. To get us across the finish line, please volunteer any day before the election. We have phone banking and canvassing opportunities every day until elections. Even just a few hours will make a big difference!

To volunteer, please contact Victor Torres with your availability. We have shifts during weekdays from 5:30-730pm and on weekends throughout the day.

Thank you for your continued support!

Fear divides us. Hope unites us.

Fear divides us. Hope unites us.

Violence has no place in our country, and we cannot let fear undermine our democracy or silence our voices. We need leaders who will bring us together, not try to tear us apart. On November 6, we can vote to make that happen.


Investing in Latinx Communities

As the first Latino to head the Democratic Party, I made a commitment to up our game in every community and put in the work required on the ground to elect Democrats across the country who will fight for our values. 

No exceptions.

That’s why this summer we launched ¡MUJERES MOBILIZED!, a Latina-led electoral initiative designed to engage, harness, and transform the energy of Hispanic women and girls into votes at the ballot box to deliver Democratic victories this November. We are recruiting Latinas who are raising their voices about issues in their communities to host phone banks, knock on doors, and talk to their neighbors to drive up Hispanic turnout for early vote and to make sure their voices are heard in November.

Standing With LGBTQ Communities


This past weekend, the New York Times reported that the Trump administration has developed a proposal that would legally define gender as based solely on a person’s genitalia at birth — a significant setback to the recognition of transgender individuals as well as a blow to federal protections against discrimination in health care, education, and more. 

This discriminatory action is just the latest assault on LGBTQ people and their rights since Trump’s inauguration. Despite running as an alledged “ally” of the LGBTQ community, Trump and his administration have engaged in a deliberate strategy to undermine and eliminate protections for LGBTQ people. 

Democrats believe that queer rights are human rights. We will continue to stand with the LGBTQ community and fight back against any effort to reverse the progress our country has made.

Philly College Students Are Fired Up To Vote

The next generation is fired up and ready to vote! I had a great time speaking with college students in Philadelphia on Tuesday. Young people are leading the charge to take back our democracy, and I could not be more impressed by the energy and enthusiasm I’ve seen from college students to turn out for Democrats this November. These are tomorrow’s leaders, and our party will always make sure they can make their voices heard.

Weekend Read

Take a few minutes this weekend to read Anastasia Somoza’s powerful story and learn why her health care is at stake in this election. 

“Anyone whose ability to work, live, and participate in their community is in danger if they lose their insurance should go out and vote for the candidates who support our health care needs. That means voting for Democrats up and down the ballot. Beware of politicians who say one thing, and then do the opposite. Join me in supporting candidates who will protect Americans’ access to health care. My and my family’s futures depend on it.”

“Vote for Me”

Need one more good reason to vote this November? See what’s at stake in the midterms through the eyes of these kids whose health, safety, and well-being are on the ballot.

They can’t vote — but we can. Please help us organize and fight for these kids by sharing this video with your friends, families, and communities, and directing them to IWillVote.com

Finishing Strong

With November 6 just around the corner, Democrats are keeping up the momentum and turning out to vote. We have boots on the ground organizing in every ZIP code — and we aren’t taking a single vote for granted.

Check out some jaw-dropping stats from our partner, MobilizeAmerica, that all Democrats should be proud of going into the midterm elections:

  • 232,472 Americans have volunteered for Democrats in races across the country using the MobilizeAmerica platform.
  • Volunteers have signed up for 421,617 shifts to get the word out about Democratic campaigns and progressive organizations. 
  • Activists scheduled 89,462 volunteer shifts just last week — a 23% increase from the week before and corresponding to more than 1.06 million door knocks.


MobilizeAmerica estimates that corresponds to 4.7 million door knocks and 5.04 million phone calls — record-breaking activity for Democrats in the midterms.

There are plenty of reasons to feel good ahead of Election Day, but we can’t let up.

11 days till the weekend, folks. Let’s bring it home.

Yours,
Tom

I need you with me in this fight

From fear-mongering against immigrants to threatening the rights of transgender Americans, President Trump is attacking our families and communities.

 

As California’s Attorney General, I’m fighting back with everything I have to defend our people and values. Now, I need your support.

Can I count on you to help me continue challenging President Trump in court? Chip in $10 before Election Day.

Right now, state Attorneys General are our most effective check on the Trump administration’s disastrous agenda. As our nation’s most populous state, California is leading the fight in court — and securing wins, with more than two dozen legal victories so far.

 

But my GOP opponent wants to stand down in the fight against Donald Trump. That’s something we simply can’t allow.

Election Day is less than two weeks away. Contribute $10 now to help me keep up the fight ahead.

Thank you,

 

Xavier

We won’t back down: Let’s turn out in record numbers on Nov. 6

Join us for the People's Day of Action

Prominent Democrats, including President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, have been targeted with explosive packages sent through the mail. Just this morning, a suspicious package was intercepted at a mail facility in California addressed to me.

This is an attempt to intimidate, suppress, and stifle the work we’ve been doing. With 11 days to go until the midterm elections that will define our country, we won’t back down.

I’m thankful no one has been hurt, and I’ve been working closely with my staff to ensure everyone here at NextGen America remains safe. But I want to emphasize: This will not deter us.

We are still ready to turn out in record numbers at the polls on November 6.

We are seeing a systematic attack on our democracy and our rule of law that extends much further than these assassination attempts. Whether it’s voter suppression, voter intimidation, attacks on our free press, gerrymandering, or attempted violence, the trust and norms that are the actual basis for our civil society and political system are being eroded.

Donald Trump has called us an “angry mob,” but we call it democracy. Make a plan to vote on November 6.

Thank you,

Tom Steyer
President
NextGen America
