Not only is Sacramento hot, but we’re also turning up the heat on the Governor.

On June 15, the California Alliance for Retired Americans (CARA), of which Peace and Freedom Party is an active member, held a caravan from West Sacramento to the State Capitol, where we joined with a couple hundred people at a rally organized by Healthy California calling on Governor Newsom to promote a single-payer healthcare system.

We loaded 19,000 petition signatures to a spokesperson from the Governor’s office pushing our cause.

On June 15th, hundreds of supporters of single-payer healthcare – among them Peace & Freedom Party members – rallied and caravanned at the State Capitol demanding that Governor Newsom lead the way on single-payer. 

At the June 15th rally, Tam Ma, Deputy Secretary to the Governor, received 19,000 petitions asking the governor to request a waiver from the Biden Administration to bring federal dollars into a California single-payer system.

Ma reported that the governor has sent a letter requesting a waiver and that his office wants to work with Healthy California Now to develop the waiver request and to take further steps in the process. She also reminded us that the governor’s Healthy California Commission is charged with developing a unified financing plan that could create the mechanism for paying for guaranteed healthcare with improved benefits and choice of provider at less cost to all Californians.

Speakers shared the importance of a single-payer system to the constituencies they represent: Diana Madoshi spoke about the need to win a single-payer system for those on Medicare and MediCal, and Cindy Young emceed the event; both are CARA vice presidents. 

A car caravan circled the capitol as the rally was going on, honking horns and waving in support of the waiver as they drove by the rally. And hundreds of people called and tweeted Gov. Newsom asking him to lead the way to single-payer healthcare for all in California.
It was a great step in our work to get the Governor to Lead on single-payer and will help as we move the Healthy California Commission process forward and get state Assembly Bill (AB 1400) before the state legislature in January 2022.

In California, voter registration is very important to political parties. The very existence of a political party as “ballot-qualified” is determined by the number of votes its statewide candidates receive or by the number of voters registered with the party. As the only feminist socialist political party on the California ballot, it is imperative that the Peace and Freedom Party continues as a qualified party.

Quite simply, the Peace and Freedom Party will not be able to provide Californians with candidates that will represent us unless we register and vote Peace and Freedom.

Thank you for registering Peace and freedom Party, and thank you for your vote!
