Why we need to vote: CNC Merced Organizer Rosa Inguanzo shares why she encourages Californians to vote NO on the recall of Gavin Newsom. Governor Newsom has been a fighter and advocate for Latinos throughout his entire career. As governor, he supported our families with driver's licenses, expanded healthcare to cover our undocumented family members, and he greatly invested in our representation in the census and in the United States Senate. Gavin Newsom has always supported us – it’s now time to support him by voting NO on the recall to protect our future and our families. Watch Rosa’s full testimony here.
NO to the recall and YES to Gavin Newsom: CNC Fresno Organizer Imelda Ramirez wrote a blog post about her concerns for this recall election. She discusses the urgency of this moment, protecting the progress California has made under Gov. Newsom’s leadership, and why we need to vote NO on the recall, NOW! Read Imelda’s full story here.
