The latest in California:
California takes steps to end the use of racist, dehumanizing language against immigrants. California Gov. Newsom signs a law to replace the term 'alien' with 'noncitizen' or 'immigrant'.
The California eviction moratorium ends Thursday, September 30th, except in areas like Fresno where local eviction moratoriums exist. An estimated 92,000 Californians could lose their housing even though the state has a $5.2 billion fund for renters and landowners to apply for rent and utility support. Apply now for rent and utility relief.
CNC Takes Action:
Reminder, Californians voted against the recall and in favor of progress by choosing to keep Gavin Newsom as Governor of our great state. This is a huge win for Californians and our future, but the work continues!
We did it, California! In this election alone we called over 500,000 families, distributed 15,000 door hangers, sent over 500,000 texts to voters with election information, mobilized residents to rallies, saturated social media with digital ad campaigns highlighting the issues that matter to us, conducted polling to guide our programs, and we’ve collaborated with diverse radio and television stations in the Central Valley and across our state.
Thank you, volunteers! CNC has been in touch with California families in English, Spanish, Punjabi, and Hmong in 13 counties. This was possible because of YOUR support and the tireless efforts of volunteers, phone bankers, outreach coordinators, and all who said NO to this recall.
September 15 to October 15 is National Hispanic American Heritage Month. In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, also referred to as Latinx Heritage Month, we are proud to highlight Hanford native Leo González.
In 2011 Leo started sharing stories of homelessness, poverty, illness, and other life struggles of people in Hanford and other California cities. “The Life Project" captured dozens of interviews and connected viewers through compassion.
Leo González has blown up on social media. He has amassed a following of over 1 million followers on Tik Tok through comedy and culture. His big break came when he impersonated a Univision anchor and reporter, and since then Leo has relocated from Hanford to Los Angeles to pursue his dreams alongside his hero, and now mentor, George Lopez, and he is collaborating with stars like DJ Marshmello.

Vaccines save lives. Summer has officially come to an end, but COVID-19 is still spreading throughout California, and the delta variant is even more contagious so it’s better at finding those who aren’t vaccinated.

¡No bajes la guardia, ponte la mascarilla y ve a vacunarte! Don’t wait for a second longer – protect yourself, your family, and your peace of mind and sign up for your vaccination now at myturn.ca.gov.
