We Are Clearly In Unprecedented Times, As The World Grapples With A Global Pandemic.

We are clearly in unprecedented times, as the world grapples with a global pandemic. First and foremost, we want to join Californians in expressing profound gratitude to our coalition of doctors, nurses, hospitals, and community clinics for the courageous, compassionate, life-saving work they continue to perform on the pandemic frontlines.

It is our understanding that the proponents of this initiative will soon submit signatures and will then await a decision whether their measure will qualify for the November ballot – a measure that would undeniably raise health care costs and reduce access to care when it is needed most.  For the time being, we're understandably focused on supporting our coalition members' frontline work to combat the coronavirus crisis. This is a time to care for patients and do so without intrusions like ballot initiative politics. 

So, for now, you may not hear from us as much as you would in a “normal” election year. If the proponents’ initiative qualifies for the ballot, our campaigning will commence in due time. Again, we give thanks for our coalition’s frontline service to California. For more information about COVID-19 resources in your community, we encourage you to visit covid.ca.gov.

We’re all in this together, California. Stay safe, stay healthy, stay strong.
