Latest News from California
We have some exciting announcements for the month of December!
Desiree Davenport, has won her seat for the Humboldt Community Services District in the final counts, making her the 4th elected Green Party candidate in Humboldt County. “I will speak up for working families and find solutions such as an affordable water program for our low-income residents, seek grants that taxpayers already fund for infrastructure repair and upkeep and reward ratepayers who are using water wisely,” Desiree said to the Tuluwat Examiner in an interview.
This brings the Green candidate's wins across California to eleven proving that our values and platform speak to our constituents and voters.
We thank all our candidates for their courageous campaigns and look forward to many more Greens running in the future.
Webinar: HOW TO BE A CAMPAIGN TREASURER
Presented by the Green Party of the United States Coordinating Campaign Committee
Tuesday, December 11th at 9 PM Eastern (6 PM Pacific Time)
One of the most important and necessary roles in any campaign is the campaign treasurer. In most cases, without a treasurer, a candidate cannot legally collect and spend money, which is pretty much the same thing as saying "no treasurer, no campaign." Yet candidates struggle to find qualified and willing volunteers to serve in this critical role. But it's not rocket science! You too can learn to be a campaign treasurer and help enable someone else to run for office!
This webinar is designed for anyone interested in being more active in Green Party campaigns, particularly in the role of treasurer. This particular session will focus on:
- the role of a campaign treasurer
- developing a campaign budget
- basic systems and processes for managing campaign accounts
- overview of campaign finance reporting basics
This webinar will be led by CCC member Hillary Kane and Green Party of Pennsylvania Treasurer Tim Runkle.
Tim Runkle is the Treasurer of the Green Party of Pennsylvania and recently served as the Treasurer for the Glover for Governor campaign.
Hillary Kane is the Treasurer of the Green Party of the United States. She has served as campaign treasurer for several Green Party candidates, and has volunteered and served in other capacities with several other prior Green Party campaigns. She is also a member of the GPUS Coordinated Campaign Committee and the co-chair of the GPUS Finance Committee. She has served as Chair of the Green Parties of both Philadelphia and Pennsylvania and has been active with the party since joining in 2000.

How Will the New Supreme Court Change America?
TUESDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2018 — 7:30 PM
National Center for the Preservation of Democracy
111 N. Central Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90012
UCLA specialist in constitutional law Adam Winkler, University of Chicago legal scholar Justin Driver, and UCLA Law School’s Beth Colgan visit Zócalo to examine how a changing high court could change America
"It’s age-old wisdom: Every single new justice creates a brand-new U.S. Supreme Court. But some legal scholars are suggesting that the court taking shape now, with a conservative majority established by President Trump’s second appointee, could make especially broad changes in the law. Long-established precedents on matters of race, sex, religion, and privacy could be overturned. And the basic structure of our government—the power of the presidency, the limits of regulation, access to the court system itself—could be transformed.
If the highest court in the land is about to make major legal history, in what ways will Americans feel the effects? What aspects of our economy, our culture, our work, and our lives are most likely to be disrupted?
And if this Supreme Court defers to the most powerful people and institutions in society, will their decisions threaten American democracy—or inspire its revival?"
