Thousands of United Farm Workers and their supporters ended a 24-day, 335-mile march at the State Capitol in Sacramento on Friday, August 26. At the capitol, UFW speakers expressed their support of Assembly Bill 2183, which would give farm workers the right to vote by mail on union representation or gain it through a card check. 

Naturally, Peace & Freedom Party members were on-hand to show solidarity to our union comrades; among those present were Robert Copeland and C.T. Weber (seen in first image below).

In response to the UFW action, a spokesmen for Governor Gavin Newsom told local media that, though “Governor Newsom is eager to sign legislation that expands opportunity for agricultural workers to come together and be represented, and he supports changes to state law to make it easier for these workers to organize[, …] we cannot support an untested mail-in election process that lacks critical provisions to protect the integrity of the election, and is predicated on an assumption that government cannot effectively enforce laws.”

Newsom vetoed the bill later that day.

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.

For all the information you need on registering to vote, visit the California Secretary of State's homepage at SOS.Ca.gov or just click here.

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