“You cannot define a person on just one thing. You can’t just forget all these wonderful and good things that a person has done because one thing didn’t come off the way you thought it should come off.” - Aretha Franklin

Be a nuisance when it counts. Do your part to inform and stimulate the public to join your action. Be depressed, discouraged, & disappointed at failure & the disheartening effects of ignorance, greed, corruption & bad politics — but never give up. - Marjory Stoneman Douglas

"There are three critical ingredients to democratic renewal and progressive change in America: good public policy, grassroots organizing and electoral politics." - Paul Wellstone, U.S. Senator
After the dismal turnout (less than 25% statewide) in the California Primary, and only 17% and 19% in Riverside and San Bernardino, respectively; few progressive gains in our electoral politics; and a huge November on the horizon; it is clear our grassroots organizing game needs to move into overdrive. How will we do that? What are you willing to bring to the table? Who are you willing to work with?
Voters across the state will cast their ballots in the June 5 statewide primary election to elect California's new governor among other important races, including our Congressional and state representative races. The top two candidates picked by voters will advance to the November ballot.
Be sure to visit your polling place tomorrow and vote between 7 AM and 8 PM to make sure your voice is heard as we elect our state's leaders.

Our local partners including CA Partnership, Inland Empowerment and others have partnered in the "Million Voters Project" and have put together this informative Voter Guide for the 2018 Primary Election happening on June 5th.
Of course, our individual members and groups in the Progressive Alliance of the Inland Empire have their candidate endorsements, however, as an alliance we do not have one "slate" of candidates recommended. Please do your research and/or reach out to someone you trust and get some guidance on some of the local campaigns on the ballot. Every vote matters and can make a difference.
