Bernie Sanders' Our Revolution-endorsed candidate for Assembly Jovanka Beckles, Former Berkeley Mayor Gus Newport and candidate for Congressional D10 Dotty Nygard invites you to join leaders of the progressive movement from across the region and state to proudly express our collective vision for the future. Together we will explore the tough questions, what comes next? What laws and budgets will protect our kids and heal our communities? Who are the leaders we the people need to elect to change those laws and pass those budgets? We are eager to answer these kinds of questions. We must continue to show people that activating democracy is hard work that can also be a joy. We know it works. We know we can do it!
Communities across California are eager for change and trying to figure out how to make it happen. The influence of corporate lobbyists and their donors are holding Sacramento back from sharing the government and leadership that we all want. Following the usual way of doing politics hasn’t worked out for the people. It’s time for every one of us to take a step beyond voting itself.
With people power, our communities can share Medicare for all, prepare for the impacts of climate change, share opportunity with citizens returning from incarceration, reform the tax code so corporations pay their fair share and build affordable housing.
The message of a People-Powered Future of California is about the transformative impact of taking one step beyond voting. When neighbors choose to knock on each other’s doors, make phone calls and donate, the people win elections.
Supporters and associates are encouraged to be ready to share the social media launch of this event and email their networks.
