Our Voice, Our California, Our Future: This Week with CNC

Now is an incredible time to be a Californian, and we have the opportunity to show the world exactly what we stand for by participating in the upcoming recall election! There’s so much going on in our golden state, so here’s a breakdown of the most important things happening in California:

The federal eviction moratorium was struck down. For Californians, the state eviction moratorium stands until September 30th.

They attacked the White House and our democracy, now they want to create more chaos and division in California. Don’t let these extremists exploit this pandemic to stop the progress that we’ve achieved together. Fight back by voting NO on the recall. #KeepGoingCalifornia #NoRecall

Listen up! CNC Founding Executive Director Pablo Rodriguez stopped by KCBS Radio to discuss the upcoming recall election and what’s at stake for California if we don’t take action by voting in the recall election. “There are serious consequences from now until September 14th for people who care about climate change and having safe drinking water for our families,” Rodriguez said. These are critical issues our state is currently facing, and we cannot afford to lose the progress that Governor Newsom has helped create. Rodriguez shed light on how a successful recall could halt progress on climate change, rent control, safe drinking water, and immigration. Beyond that, a successful recall threatens to derail the balance of power in California and even extend all the way to the U.S. Senate. If you care about these issues and the future of California, be sure to do your part and cast your ballot by September 14th.

CNC Merced Organizer Rosa Inguanzo discussing 2020 census results on Despierta Valle Central

Good Morning, California! Last week, CNC Merced Organizer Rosa Inguanzo appeared on Despierta Valle Central to break down the results of the 2020 census and to remind viewers of the importance of participating in this upcoming election. As a result of our work and participation in the 2020 census, our families will have political power and appropriate resources for schools, hospitals, emergencies, natural disasters, and so much more. Rosa went into detail about how we were able to achieve this census win: by working together, and with the support of strong allies, like Governor Newsom, who provided resources to organizations like CNC to get our families involved and included. Now is the time to keep this momentum alive and to continue harnessing our power! Rose reminded Californians to keep going and to take action by participating in the recall election.

If your child is going back to in-person learning, make sure to listen to Dr. Vázquez talk about COVID-19 safety measures! Parents, we hear your concerns about sending your children back to school this year. The Delta variant is worrisome, so we must do everything we can to support safer schools. Right now, over 11 million children aged 12-17 have been vaccinated in the United States alone. Children aged 12-17 are able to get the Pfizer vaccine, and anyone 18 years and older can receive any of the vaccines. Getting vaccinated is the best tool to protect your children and the children around you. To learn more about the Delta variant and how kids can stay safer on campus, click here.

Keep the volume up, Sacramento – did you catch us on Latino 97.9? CNC’s Director of Communications, Karina Martinez, chatted with El Despertador’s MariCarmen and C-Bash to discuss COVID-19 and the importance of getting vaccinated – especially for young people. Right now, COVID-19 and the incredibly contagious Delta Variant is spreading fast throughout California and to our families, and the best way we can protect ourselves and our loved ones is to get vaccinated! Martinez shared why it’s important to get vaccinated now and why we need to keep wearing our masks because even young people can get seriously sick from this variant. Getting vaccinated is easy and free, so don’t let your guard down, wear your mask, and head to your nearest vaccination site! By vaccinating together, we can get back to a normal life.
