Feminists and our allies continue to make tremendous strides in standing up to sexual harassment and assault, closing countless achievement gaps, and fighting for equal rights for women. With our state and nation fundamentally reevaluating how it values women in our society, there are still enormous challenges for women to overcome.
It’s made it even more apparent why we need more women in politics. Since California became a state in the 1850s, only 10 women have been elected to statewide office — and only two have been State Treasurer.
With Emerge California’s Class of 2018. Emerge is the state’s premier organization for recruiting and training Democratic women to run for office.
As a woman, I’m proud to be running for State Treasurer and am honored to have the support of some truly remarkable leaders and organizations, including U.S. Senator Kamala Harris, the California Women’s List, Planned Parenthood, and Emily’s List.
Will you join them in supporting me for State Treasurer?
Thank you for your continued support and friendship.
