On June 7th, for the first time in many years, California will play a pivotal role in deciding who will ultimately become the Democratic nominee for the U.S. presidency. Additionally, Californians will be voting on key local, state, and federal races, as well as local ballot measures. Most importantly, June 7th will give us the opportunity to fight back against the attacks on women, immigrants, minorities, and unions. The only way we can make true change happen, like the $15 minimum wage increase, is by electing leaders who will fight for the issues that matter to us. Just like basic math and arithmetic determined that one of the most divisive candidates in history would become the next GOP presidential nominee, we must ensure that through our collective power we flex our political muscle and turnout for hope not hate. The first step is to register!
