Dolores Huerta Foundation to file lawsuit against KC Board alleging violations of Voting Rights Act


MALDEF and the Dolores Huerta Foundation will hold a press conference to announce is the filing of a lawsuit against the Board of Supervisors of Kern County, California alleging that the board violated Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.



Kern County’s 2011 redistricting plan unlawfully dilutes the Latino vote and effectively prevents Latinos from meaningful participation in Board of Supervisor elections.

Hillary Folks: Your Compassion and Wisdom is Needed

I am making a request on behalf of all of us. On behalf of Hillary. On behalf of the 33,000 people who are killed every year by gun violence. Finally, the good people of the Democratic Party are trying to do something about it. Obama has. Hillary is doing it. It is going to be an uphill battle the same way civil rights, health rights and lgbt rights have been hard fought.

Please, if you can, support Hillary in her quest to change the gun violence landscape. She is right and leading the way.

There is a thread in GDP where unfortunately, people are so blinded by politics, they won't support this issue. If you can lend your compassion, your wisdom and voices, please visit this thread and support Hillary's cause:

Thank you so much. Hillary people are the best.









"My Mom"-Daughter Of Slain Sandy Hook Principal Stars In New Hillary Clinton Ad

Thank you, Erica. You are a hero just like your mom. You are using your heartbreak to promote gun reform that will stop the murders of our children and families in our homes, our schools and our streets. A progressive cause that is so long overdue.












“She reminds me of my mother: she isn’t scared of anything,” Erica Smegielski says.

Dawn Hochsprung, will appear in a new ad for the Hillary Clinton campaign in the upcoming primary states of Connecticut and Rhode Island.

Smegielski, to whom Clinton devoted the final portion of her victory speech Tuesday night, argues in the ad, “My Mom,” that Clinton is the presidential candidate best equipped to reform the country’s gun laws.

The 60-second version of the ad begins with Smegielski describing how painful it was to lose her mother in the December 2012 mass shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. Hochsprung, one of 26 victims of the massacre, was killed while trying to protect her students.

“No more families should have to go through what we have,” Smegielski says. “Hillary Clinton is the only candidate that has what it takes to take on the gun lobby.”

Clinton’s campaign website says she would strengthen gun background checks by closing loopholes and end legal immunity for gun makers and sellers whose products are used in violent acts, among other reforms.

“No one is fighting harder to reform our gun laws than Hillary,” Smegielski continues, as footage of her hugging Clinton appears on screen. “She reminds me of my mother: she isn’t scared of anything. And that’s how I know she is the person who can actually make a difference.”

Hillary Supporters Task Force to Push Back Against Online Harassment & Thank SuperDelegates!

Hillary supporters, you can help!

TASK FORCE WILL HELP CLINTON SUPPORTERS PUSH BACK ON ONLINE HARASSMENT
AND THANK SUPERDELEGATES

To find out more about the task force and how you can help go here:

THANK A SUPERDELEGATE HERE:

Anonymous online attacks, from both sides of the political spectrum, have sought to spread lies and misleading narratives about Secretary Hillary Clinton.
Hillary’s supporters are more enthusiastic than Sen. Bernie Sanders’ supporters, yet oftentimes are discouraged from engaging online and are “often afraid to voice their thoughts” because of the fear of online harassment. Many of Hillary Clinton’s female supporters in particular have been subject to intense cyber-bullying and sexist attacks from swarms of anonymous attackers.

Among the many Hillary Clinton supporters attacked online, superdelegates have been subject to vicious attacks for supporting her. Even the director of MoveOn, which has endorsed Sen. Sanders, denounced this harassment.


In response to these attacks on supporters and superdelegates, Correct The Record is launching the Barrier Breakers 2016 digital task force. While Hillary Clinton fights to break down barriers and bring America together, the Barrier Breakers 2016 digital task force will serve as a resource for supporters looking for positive content and push-back to share with their online progressive communities, as well as thanking prominent supporters and committed superdelegates on social media.

Correct The Record will invest more than $1 million into Barrier Breakers 2016 activities, including the more than tripling of its digital operation to engage in online messaging both for Secretary Clinton and to push back against attackers on social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, and Instagram. Barrier Breakers 2016 is a project of Correct The Record and the brainchild of David Brock, and the task force will be overseen by President of Correct The Record Brad Woodhouse and Digital Director Benjamin Fischbein. The task force staff’s backgrounds are as diverse as the community they will be engaging with and include former reporters, bloggers, public affairs specialists, designers, Ready for Hillary alumni, and Hillary super fans who have led groups similar to those with which the task force will organize.

Lessons learned from online engagement with “Bernie Bros” during the Democratic Primary will be applied to the rest of the primary season and general election–responding quickly and forcefully to negative attacks and false narratives. Additionally, as the general election approaches, the task force will begin to push out information to Sanders supporters online, encouraging them to support Hillary Clinton.



The task force currently combats online political harassment, having already addressed more than 5,000 individuals who have personally attacked Secretary Clinton on Twitter. The task force will provide a presence and space online where Clinton supporters can organize and engage with one another and are able to obtain graphics, videos, gifs, and messaging to use in their own social spaces. Additionally, the Barrier Breakers 2016 task force hopes to embrace the creativity of Hillary Clinton’s supporters by sharing their efforts and content with other groups.

Reich Urges Unity:"Either is a 1000X Better President than Republicans"- Berniacs Post More Hate

Yesterday notable Sander's supporter Robert Reich asked his facebook followers to "tone it down" and to agree that either candidate would be "a thousand times better than any of the Republican candidates". He was motivated to post his message based on the urgent need to unify against the GOP and his FB comment section being filled with anti Hillary rants.

What was the reaction of the Berniacs?? An uninterrupted stream of more Hillary Hate posted to Reich's facebook feed.



Where is the bus?







https://www.facebook.com/RBReich/posts/1201350509877543

Reading through many of your comments about today's New York primary, I want to urge that Bernie supporters tone down negative characterizations of Hillary, and Hillary supporters do the same with regard to Bernie. I know both candidates personally. Both are thoughtful and dedicated people who care deeply about this nation. Either of them would be a thousand times better president than any of the Republican candidates. But we will need to join together to ensure one of them becomes president. It's important we not jeopardize that future joint effort through excessive divisiveness now.
What do you think?

There Has Always Been Inequality

There has always been inequality. Before the top 1% was an issue, before the banks and the corporations began to monopolize the marketplace, millions of people in the United States experienced what white, middle class men are just starting to. The disparity of wealth and opportunity was not created by today's 1%. The 1% has simply brought it to the attention of a group who had not previously been affected. Thus, the wistfulness for the "good old days" is one that many Democrats do not share.

For the first time, the white, middle class male is experiencing just some of what minorities and women have for centuries. For them, it is primarily an emerging economic injustice. But, for many Democrats, it has always been about that and so much more. That is why many don't hold the 1% exclusively accountable for the systemic oppression they have always faced. The 1% did not create it; it has ALWAYS been there. And it comes from a place deep within the 99% where discrimination and inequality are just part of everyday life.

Hillary Paid 35% Taxes and Gave 11% to Charity -- Bernie? Not so Much

Last year, we paid an effective federal tax rate of 35.7 percent and a combined federal, state, and local effective rate of 45.8 percent. We contributed 10.8 percent of our income to charity. In 2013, the numbers were similar. We paid an effective federal tax rate of 35.4 percent and a combined rate of 44.6 percent, and donated 11.4 percent of our income to charity.
