The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

As we head into the end of the quarter, you’re going to be hearing a lot about how much we raised this quarter — and what that means for us moving forward.
Maybe it’s just me — my background is in activism and social justice, so I’m not used to using money as the sole yardstick as the success of a movement.  
But we already know that when we elect a candidate like Julián, it’s not going to be because of traditional metrics or outdated ideas about viability based on early raising. 
It’s going to be because we resonate with folks like you based on metrics that can’t be measured — because they are immeasurable, and can’t be quantified — because they are invaluable.
I want to do a quick recap of what we raised this quarter from my perspective. 
We raised the stakes: 
When Julián announced, he told you that he is running because in his life, he has been blessed with opportunity, and he is seeing those opportunities disappear for other people.
We are at a crossroads in this country, and the question that will be decided by this election is who we want to be as a country.
Julián has a vision for our future that will make us the smartest, healthiest, fairest, and most prosperous nation in the world. That’s what’s at stake.
We raised issues that normally don’t get addressed: 
Julián is the only candidate in this race who has been willing to address reparations clearly and head on.
He doesn’t see this as a political issue but a moral one. And it shows.
We raised our voices in support of justice:
Julián has made clear that targeting and addressing the police violence that people of color face will be one of the priorities of his presidency.
He added his voice to the chorus of yours demanding Justice for Antonio.
We raised the standards:
We’re setting new expectations for the rest of the field. We were the first to visit Puerto Rico; the first to commit to paying our interns a $15/hour minimum wage; and the first to go on a 50-state tour.
We’re setting the tone for this race — and others are following our lead.
We raised our glasses at our first family meal:
Team Julián is, first and foremost, a family. The kind of team he has built is a testament to who he is as a leader and as a boss. Here’s our small but mighty team enjoying our first family meal.
I’m looking back on this quarter, and here’s what we raised: The bar.
I can’t wait to see what we raise together next quarter.
P.S. If you’re still reading, I can’t thank you enough for your support. And I’m going to ask for one more small favor: Can you pitch in $1 or whatever you can spare to help Julián reach the debate stage? We need to hit 65,000 donors for him to qualify. Truly, any donation helps us hit this critical milestone.
