Today – Wednesday! Learn how to help create new Americans (& new voters!)…

Screen Shot 2017-06-16 at 5.37.36 PMI’ve been to a lot of lectures in my life, but this one, given by our local immigration lawyer, Vanessa Frank, on how someone becomes a citizen of our country, was absolutely fascinating. You cannot come out of it without a new sense of respect for all those people you see at citizenship swearing-in ceremonies.

Learning how to help immigrants fill out the N400 Citizenship Application form is, in itself, a civics lesson, a history lesson and a profound insight into the human journey that ends with the privilege of calling oneself an “American”.  Continue reading “Today – Wednesday!

Ready, Aim, Fire… The 3-Week War Begins! – (This is where we started…)

Way back when we were all mesmerized with Comey’s testimony of employer harassment and Donald was being kept busy with a chew toy,  the Senate GOP had been secretly crafting a healthcare plan designed to be voted on quickly by the end of June. They wanted to use “Rule 14” to whip it to the floor for a vote, and the deed would be done before we have a chance for expert analysis or public comment. Then the gaslighting about “access” would commence, because, well, they think we’re stupid.

Why did the Senators think this would work?

(Ben Wikler)”…Senators are telling me that their phones have returned to normal, pre-Trump levels. A few dozen calls a day….”

They thought that the resistance was tired. That although we would be angry, we would be ready to throw in the towel, resigned to our fate.

Ummm… Wrong. Oh, they were so wrong!

Action This Morning to Support Our Farmworkers!

URGENT: Show up this morning (Tuesday) to support farmworkers!

Over the past year, local farmworker advocates have been in constructive dialogue with agriculture industry leaders to find common ground around how to improve working conditions for farmworkers.

CAUSE and MICOP and key industry leaders reached an agreement to support a $200k Ventura County Farmworker Resource Program, which would help farmworkers learn about their legal protections, resolve issues with their employers, and navigate public agencies.

Ventura County Supervisors Steve Bennett and John Zaragoza are now proposing this program to be included in next year’s budget, and have placed it on the Board of Supervisors agenda tomorrow morning. Continue reading “Action This Morning to Support Our Farmworkers!”
