SB 562, the Single Payer healthcare bill that we are still trying to fight for has run into new opposition by the Democrats in Sacramento. A really good analysis of why it does not work to hope that progressive Democrats will save us on Single Payer healthcare. https://www.counterpunch.org/2017/06/27/california-scheming-democrats-betray-single-payer-again/
I’m very pleased to announce that my campaign has received the endorsement of the Peace and Freedom Party!
I just finished my candidacy filing this week, getting in all the paperwork for the primary!! Now I need some help canvassing and getting out some literature! Please contact me if you can help canvass, endorse, or donate to my campaign. This is a grassroots candidacy, non-reliant on corporate support, so I need help from real people!
We reached our 1,000 signatures to get on the ballot turning in 53 petitions on Wednesday, February 7, 2018 in addition to the 50 we had already turned in! Thanks to all my great volunteers–Leidiana, Wynona, Lee, Sam, Sunny, Jane and Jesse–and thanks to everyone who helped us out by signing! You are fantastic!!
I was raising awareness that we must pass the Equal Rights Amendment in order to finally secure equality for women in the U. S. Constitution. With the ratification of Nevada in 2017, we now need only two more states for the ERA to finally be ratified, now nearly 100 years since it was first introduced as the Lucretia Mott Amendment in 1923, and nearly 50 years since it was re-introduced in 1972.
It is high time the Equal Rights Amendment to the federal constitution is ratified so women are no longer second-class citizens! We have done our part here in California, back in 1972, along with now 35 other states in total. Of the 14 states that have not ratified, Virginia and Illinois are the likeliest to ratify so the ERA can finally become federal law!!
Please help us raise funds and gather endorsements and signatures! CrowdPac Campaign
