All last week you heard a great deal about the fight between Jeff Sessions and California. It was particularly disappointing to recognize that 50 years ago, on March 10th, Robert Kennedy, former United States Attorney General, came to California to break the fast with Cesar Chavez.

We simply can’t lose hope now. It is time to fight back even harder. One might say electing the daughter of farmworkers and of a Mexican immigrant is the perfect way to send a message to Trump and his administration that we are a better, more welcoming nation of people.
