Making this film changed my life! So grateful to the myriad of women who made it possible and so happy to see so much progress- even if we still have so much work to do!
So proud of @JenSiebelNewsom on the 10th anniversary of her groundbreaking film #MissRepresentation.
This film changed the conversation, and opened the doors for women in leadership everywhere.
Here’s to your many more groundbreaking years ahead!
CA stepped up to help our small businesses with a $500M relief grant program. Funds start to go out today, and we’re thrilled federal small business relief may also now be on the way soon due to @POTUS’ proposals.
Second round of applications open 2/2:
$500 million in small business grants -- not loans -- starts to go out TODAY.
President Joe Biden said he is pushing for a $15 minimum wage to lift Americans out of poverty
In 2016, California became one of the first states to seek a $15 minimum wage.
Today, the President of the United States said he is raising the minimum wage to $15/hour for federal workers.
Your turn, Congress.
Today, more than 200,000 face shields arrived from @Cal_OES and are being stored in #BalboaPark for our neighbors in Mexico, awaiting pick-up from the Mexican Consulate. Glad our city can assist with coordinating this needed PPE shipment in our collective fight against #COVID19
I led the effort to decriminalize & legalize cannabis because the war on drugs has been an abject failure—with disproportionate & devastating impacts on communities of color.
These are the types of entrepreneurial opportunities we dreamed of—thanks Jay-Z!
.@GavinNewsom just issued an executive order ensuring expiring medical cannabis cards remain valid.
Cannabis is life-saving medicine for many Californians — including those living with HIV, cancer & other chronic illnesses — & we need to ensure people can access their medicine.
Joe Biden's proposed immigration bill, if passed, would remove the word "alien" from US immigration laws, replacing it with the term "noncitizen."
It's a deliberate step intended to recognize America as "a nation of immigrants."
We now have a leader who is willing to say that America’s diversity is our STRENGTH. What a beautiful thing.
Thank you @CAGovernor for providing economic stimulus relief with the Golden State Stimulus. Direct payments are the fastest and most effective way to ensure an efficient and equitable recovery from COVID. #MoneyForThePeople
An additional $600 for those that need it most will provide an immediate bridge while we wait for more federal relief. #GoldenStateStimulus
-Give our kids asthma
-Make wildfires worse
We’re in the middle of a climate CRISIS and transportation is responsible for 50% of CA’s greenhouse gas emissions.
Thank you @POTUS—it’s time to be as bold as the problem is big.
REMINDER: CA, you are now REQUIRED to wear a mask in public spaces.
We’re seeing too many people with faces uncovered. Wearing a face covering is critical for keeping people safe and healthy, keeping businesses open and getting people back to work.
Do your part. Wear your mask.
