These are critical times. We must rein in the billionaires, reform an out-of-control, racist criminal justice system, rebuild our environmental path, and more. As all eyes begin to turn towards the upcoming national elections, we want to make sure that a California political leader who has always been there on the important issues gets the recognition she deserves— and raise funds for our 2016 fight to reform Prop 13, win back our 2/3rds Legislative majority, and build our movement.
Betty has been a progressive champion in the state of California for years. She grew up in a working class immigrant family and never left her roots. On every progressive issue our club cares about, Betty has been there- economic justice, civil rights, environment, feminism, health care, progressive tax reform, LGBTQ rights, and on and on!
Mal’s 50 years of progressive activism includes being a trailblazer in the California Democratic Party Progressive Caucus, a Wellstone Club founding member, and an active civil rights lawyer who defended literally hundreds of political activists in his career. The Wellstone Club will present Mal with the Club’s first Lifetime Achievement Award.
