Hi Friends,

It’s time to vote again!

Ballots for the Republican-led gubernatorial recall are out in California!. To defeat this ill-advised political gimmick and maintain Governor Newsom’s strong leadership, we have three simple asks from you (Don’t live in California? Skip to step three): Vote No and return your ballot! Got kids or grandkids in college? Make sure they vote “No” and submit their ballots before heading out to School. It won’t take them more than a few minutes to do but will have a lasting impact on our state for years! Sign up for as many of the activities listed below as you can to stop this desperate Republican power grab. Last year, we worked together for our country and won back the White House. This summer, we work together to protect our beloved state.
