Join the movement to stop Donald Trump!

 

We pledge ourselves to speak out nonviolently in every way possible against the politics of hate, violence, and exclusion Donald Trump represents.

Together, we’re putting the media and political institutions on notice for normalizing Trump’s extremism by treating it as entertainment, by giving it inordinate and unequal air time, and by refusing to condemn it.

There are currently 35,724 signatures. NEW goal – We need 40,000 signatures!

California Democratic Party Chair Eric C. Bauman Announces Standing Committee Appointments

California Democratic Party Chair Eric C. Bauman today announced appointments to the Standing Committees of the California Democratic Party. In a departure from previous years, the process of selecting committee membership was opened up by Chair Bauman to include the statewide officers of the CDP.

“This has been the most inclusive process in decades, and we have selected the most diverse set of of appointments in CDP history,” said Eric C. Bauman, Chair of the California Democratic Party.  “I am particularly proud that we appointed a majority of women and people of color because everyone should have a seat at the table in the California Democratic Party.”

Of the appointments made, more than half were people of color, and more than half were were women. 13 percent of the appointees identify as disabled, and 16 percent identify as LGBTQ. Additionally, nearly half of the appointees are brand new appointees who have never served on a CDP committee before.

“These committees are one of the most important ways an activist can help build up and strengthen our party and fight for our values. I believe we will see tremendous work come out of each of these committees, particularly with so many new and enthusiastic grassroots Democrats participating for the first time,” added Chair Bauman.

For a full list of appointments by committee, please visit the California Democratic Party Standing Committee page, which can be found here.

Wildfire Preparedness Game

 

From our daughter, Jenny Gottstein below is a little blurb about the upcoming Wildfire Preparedness Game, the game demo, and a poster (attached):See Wildlife Preparedness Game here,  http://www.thegogame.com/blog/2017/06/wildfire-preparedness-game-2017/

We are inviting families across Amador and Calaveras County to participate in a fun interactive competition from August 1 to 14th. This game is free, open to the public, and designed for all ages! Winners will be eligible for awesome local prizes.

The game can be played anywhere, at any time, You can play the game on a desktop computer, a tablet, or a smartphone (all you need is cellphone reception or wifi). Points will be awarded based on number of missions completed, humor, brilliance, and creativity.

In this game, families will complete creative challenges related to:

– Home & Property Fire-Proofing
– Family Communication Plans
– Evacuation Strategies
– Go Bags & Emergency Kits

To play, visit:  http://play.thegogame.com/play/  Password: tio

Similar to the last game, this project is a labor of love and a community effort – I could definitely use some help in the following areas:

-Spreading the word to families throughout the county about the game
-Finding prize sponsors (movie tickets, gift cards, emergency bag supplies)

If anyone has any ideas or suggestions, please tell them to reach out to me here: jenny@thegogame.com

Thank you!!

ACLU is leading a new charge

 

Across the country, there is a growing army of people who are alarmed by what they’re seeing coming out of the Trump administration. People see his Muslim ban for the unconstitutional religious discrimination that it is, and they want to get involved — to protect their neighbors from deportation raids and stand against this administration’s repeated attacks on civil rights.

FOOTHILLS RISING

“Welcome to Foothills Rising, the group formerly known as the Motherlode Organizing Group! We reside in the Calaveras, Amador and Tuolumne County region of California’s Motherlode region. We are here to build democracy in a rural conservative region. Presently, in Amador and Calaveras counties, we are in the minority position within a majority rules system, which leads many people to think there is nothing they can do. And, often times, they’re right.”

Health Care: We believe that health care is a human right.

“It’s clear every Republican prediction about Obamacare was wrong. Just ask the millions of Americans who now have access to health care.”
U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer

California Democrats believe that health care is a human right not a privilege, yet for too long families have had to make the decision between medicine and food. California Democrats supported the passage of the Affordable Care Act, which has enabled millions of Californians to have quality, affordable care for the first time. And we are fighting Republican efforts to take away health care from Americans.

  • We are holding health insurers and providers accountable for the quality of care and for protecting the privacy of Californians’ health records.
  • We are working to reduce barriers to small business to offer health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, to improve employee health and fuel our economy.
  • California Democrats expanded access to safe family planning options for women in underserved rural areas. We promote health care for women and girls including pre-natal, peri-natal, well-baby care and comprehensive immunization services and full reproductive health services that respects a woman’s right to choose.
  • California Democrats are expanding health coverage for children regardless of their immigration status – because children shouldn’t be a casualty of our nation’s broken immigration system.

Dems Lead: More than 1.4 million previously uninsured Californians obtained health care in 2014 and 2015 through Covered California, created by the Affordable Care Act.
