This Saturday, 7/28, will be very busy…

Action #1- Keep up the pressure. Join us at the rally!

Four days before the deadline, only 354 children ages 5-17 have been united with their parents.

As the Trump Administration drags its heels on reuniting thousands of separated children with their parents, it’s time we once again take action and demand a solution to this crisis and dignity for all immigrants. On Saturday, July 28, between 6-8 pm, we’re stepping up to say “Families Belong Together: We Demand Justice!”

RSVP and share, share, share on Facebook.

Meet at the corner of Victoria and Telephone in front of the Ventura County Government Center. Bring your amazing signs! Bring great chants to teach us! Bring your American flags: because Americans love kids and families and protecting them from harm is a quintessential American value, because America was built by immigrants and continues to depend on immigrants and because fighting terror and injustice is the most patriotic thing we can do.

Facebook page here – watch for updates!

For inspiration, read this open letter to Donald Trump from the California Democratic Party regarding today’s visit:

Dear Mr. Trump,
We know it’s been a while since you visited California. Is it because we’re the reason you lost the popular vote?

Or the fact that the world looks to us as the leader on climate change?

Are you intimidated by our Governor who speaks Latin better than you speak, period?
Well, regardless of why you stayed away your first year in office, you’re coming here today.

And since it’s your first trip in a couple of years, we thought you might appreciate some tips on how to have a productive and successful visit. Following these simple, easy-to-understand rules will help you navigate your way around a state that proudly lives in the 21st Century:

Tip #1 – DON’T PRAISE NAZIS. Seriously. Nazis are not popular anywhere, but they’re incredibly unpopular in California. We know this has been an issue for you Continue reading “Today’s Voter Registration Postponed, Trump Protest Still On!”

March events to defeat NRA A+ Rated Steve Knight – are you in?

UGH.

Steve Knight’s stance on guns from his fundraising website:

“Our nation’s founders enshrined the right to bear firearms in the Constitution, which means the government has no right to enact arbitrary restrictions. Undermining the 2nd Amendment by crafting gun control laws aimed to reduce violence rarely results in safer communities. Instead, it is responsible gun owners who pay the price as criminals rarely comply with the laws enacted to keep firearms out of their hands. There is no law Congress can pass to stop gun violence, however we must examine better policing strategies and mental health services in order to provide a more direct path to solving the problem of gun violence.”

I could go on quite the tangent here, but I won’t. Instead I’m going to Simi Valley and Santa Clarita next month to defeat this guy. If you need more convincing, click here.

Why we Need to Help our Sister District, CA-25, – and how YOU can Help!

We Venturans can’t vote Knight out, but we can help our neighbors and friends in Simi Valley and Santa Clarita rid themselves of him – and help ourselves by removing one of the 24 Trump minions needed to turn the House blue!

Let us count the ways Steve Knight has betrayed us: He votes with Trump 98% of the time. He voted against our healthcare. He voted for the #TrumpTaxScam.  He’s rabidly anti-choice. He opposed raises to minimum wage for workers. And his environmental record is dismal.

The National Rifle Association gives him an A rating.

And we’d bet our shirts that when it’s time to vote for the DREAMers or the Stupid Border Wall, he’s going to rubber stamp Trump too.

MEDICARE FOR ALL MARCH LA

SUNDAY, JULY 23 @ 11:00 AM2:00 PM

EVENT NAVIGATION

Healthy California Pride

With the repeal of the flawed and partially defunded ACA on the horizon, and the abhorrent plans to replace it with something that is not care, but a tax cut for the wealthy, it’s time to let Congress know we wish to have health care for all people like all other modern industrialized nations.

It’s very likely that they won’t make a decision on #Trumpcare until the end of session in Congress, which is why we need to make our voices heard across the country to tell our elected officials that the option is Medicare for all in the U.S. and more specifically, CA.

Let us also send a message to California Speaker Anthony Rendon —> stop blocking healthcare for all & let the Assembly VOTE on SB 562 – the single-payer health care bill!

We will be meeting at
