I am the organizer of the Inland Empire Our Revolution Chapter.
We have a great opportunity to learn what progressives have done in Northern California to win elections and gain local, county and state seats...while refusing corporate money and defeating the political objectives of Chevron.
Gayle McLaughlin is a progressive candidate and she is running for Lt. Governor. She is visiting us here in Riverside County on Thursday 28 September 2017.
(See Details below).
Chevron had a tight grip on local politics in the Richmond area until the Richmond Progressive Alliance defeated them! Regular citizens, fought back, organized and won!
See this video: There is much to be learned from how progressives have won elections in Richmond
You have an opportunity to meet the founder of the RPA and to participate in a world wide podcast and I wanted you all to be the first that I invited.
Gayle supports single payer, clean environments, prison and drug policy reform, education reform and many of the other issues that those of us on the left are united in our efforts to accomplish.
I will be sending out links to you to allow you to join the Inland Empire Our Revolution Chapter and links to the upcoming podcast.
I am extending invitations to local Democratic Clubs, PDA, Our Revolution, Activist San Diego, Southern District of California Community Coalition, LA Progressives and others. As a member of the far left wing of the Democratic Party, I hope to support unity by bringing different groups together to focus on successful campaign tactics.
See the details of this event and let me know ASAP if you have an interest in coming. This will be at my home in Tuscany Hills.
PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU ARE ATTENDING OUR NONVIOLENT COMMUNICATION WORKSHOP THIS COMING SUNDAY 24 SEPTEMBER 2017 AS WELL.
Here is the schedule and some videos regarding the Richmond Progressive Alliance meeting. LET ME KNOW ASAP IF YOU ARE ATTENDING. Space is limited at my home. Only about 45 people will be able to attend. Call me for address and other info if interested, ASAP.

Gayle and her campaign manager, Juan, are excited that you will host her on your show, and organize a gathering of other progressive individuals and groups in your area. Thanks SO much for doing this. It is a worthy cause and Gayle is an excellent candidate.

I am attaching a bio in PDF and in word in case you want to copy and paste. Below is more content you can use for outreach, including links for video and news articles:
Gayle McLaughlin is running a statewide organizing campaign for Lieutenant Governor of California and seeks support of individual voters as well as organized groups. Gayle has achieved great victories as Mayor, City Councilwoman and co-founder of the Richmond Progressive Alliance (RPA), and now looks to take lessons learned to Sacramento so we can have a more progressive California. Gayle is running a corporate-free, people first campaign and supports single-payer Medicare for all, free college, immigrant rights, Prop 13 reform, taxes for oil severance and millionaires, affordable housing, public education, union organizing, campaign finance reform, Black Lives Matter, and social, economic and environmental justice. Gayle has been featured in the San Francisco Chronicle and The East Bay Express. The Incorruptibles co-produced a video with the RPA called Sharing our Experience, which outlines the process this activist group used to take on Chevron and win a super majority of City Council seats. Bernie Sanders endorsed Gayle's City Council campaign in 2014 and she has received endorsements from other Our Revolution affiliates throughout the state.
