2. GET INVOLVED: California Training Opportunities
California Fair Political Practices Commission: check out a variety of upcoming training opportunities!
3. PROMOTE ACCESS TO HEALTHCARE FOR ALL CALIFORNIANS!
AB1400 was pulled from a vote in the Assembly because not enough Democrats were going to vote for access to healthcare for all residents of California. Reach out to your state assemblymember today to urge them to continue working on a bill that will provide equitable access to healthcare.
I know that Assembly Bill 1400 was pulled from consideration due to a lack of votes to pass it. I urge you to continue working with your fellow legislators to bring a bill to the floor of the Assembly that will not only pass but will provide equitable access to needed healthcare for all Californians. A healthier California is a stronger California, not only for our economy but also for our quality of life.

- Redlands City Redistricting: Our Congressional maps have been set, but the City of Redlands is just beginning its process of reviewing and potentially re-drawing the City’s five districts. Between now and April, the City Council will look at submitted maps and will make a final decision. We need to urge the City Council to select a map that brings equity to ALL the residents of Redlands.
Upcoming City of Redlands public meetings are scheduled:
- February 15, 2022 (6:00 pm, City Hall)
- March 1, 2022 (6:00 pm, City Hall)
- April 17, 2022 – adoption of the final maps

- The Rittenhouse trial demonstrated to us that judicial elections are incredibly important. Let us pledge together to become better informed prior to the next election where judges are on the ballot to ensure that we are electing qualified, non-partisan members of the bench to serve the judiciary in our region. #NoRittenhouseJudgesHere
