SACRAMENTO – Today, a coalition of advocacy, labor, immigration, women’s health, youth and environmental organizations applauded the legislative Elections Committee Chairs call for Governor Gavin Newsom to issue an Executive Order that will set up critical protections across the state to ensure the safety of all voters. The state-wide coalition consists of nearly a dozen organizations. As California continues to respond to the COVID-19 crisis, the coalition requests Governor Newsom provide clear direction on the steps counties should take to ensure all voters—regardless of zip code or racial identity - have the ability to vote safely in the upcoming November 2020 election.
