Hey everyone. Gavin Newson here. Just wrapped up our first Red State Tour for the Campaign for Democracy and I wanted to share some updates.

I hope you’ll give ‘em a look.

Alabama
I met with the Democratic Caucus while in Montgomery. They shared with me how important our mission at Campaign for Democracy really is. In 2010, they held the majority. Now, they are stuck building from the bottom up and need our help.

Gavin Newsom's tweet reading 'While the media circus focuses on the politics of hate and division today, it’s never been more important to organize from the bottom up. States like Alabama that were ground zero for the fight for civil rights are experiencing a massive roll back of freedoms led by the @GOP.'

Mississippi
I spent the day with Jackson Mayor Chokwe Lumumba, Ebony, and their beautiful children attending Palm Sunday service at College Hill Baptist Church.

Later, we took our families to the Civil Rights Museum in Jackson to see their powerful exhibit on Emmett Till. His tragic story sparked anger and fear — and a powerful movement. It was a stark reminder of our nation’s history and how important it is that we teach our kids about it.

Arkansas
In Arkansas, we took the family to Little Rock’s Central High School where today students are carrying on the legacy of the Little Rock Nine who bravely desegregated schools in Arkansas.

Gavin Newsom's tweet reading 'Inspired by the students at Little Rock’s Central High School today who are carrying on the legacy of the Little Rock Nine that bravely desegregated schools in Arkansas. My message to them: you don’t have to have a position of formal authority to use moral authority & make change'

We also met with the Arkansas Democrats who are fighting to stop the rollback of rights by their new Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Emerge Arkansas's tweet reading 'Thank you @GavinNewsom & @JenSiebelNewsom for spending time in Arkansas tonight. We loved having you. Thank you for reminding us that we have agency to determine our own path. We will change the face of politics across this state and ensure every Arkansan can thrive. #arpx'

Florida
Yesterday morning, I visited with staff and teachers from New College in Florida; a school Ron DeSantis is attempting to transform from a public honors college into a Christian conservative school, much to the near universal dismay of everyone who learns and works there.

I told them they are not alone. That they matter. And that people everywhere are watching authoritarian leaders like Ron DeSantis roll back rights, limit speech and take away freedoms.

Like I said, we are going to travel the country and take the fight directly to extremist Republicans systematically attacking the very foundations of our free society. We will bring attention to their efforts.

It’s working:

A collage of headlines highlighting Gavin Newsom's trip to Florida.

Republicans like Ron DeSantis are fanning the flames of culture wars in places like New College to distract from the fact that Florida has higher murder rates, worse education and worse health care outcomes than states like California.

Thank you for being a part of this fight with me.

Gavin Newsom


"Stop Robbing MUNI”
https://youtu.be/098y66Jm25M
On March 1, 2010 hundreds of SF TWU 250-A drivers and riders rallied and marched against the attacks on public transit. The San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom and his hand picked MTA board has sought to pit the drivers against the elderly, disabled and students. He and his board demanded that they take concessions or fares would be increased on these people. Another video is at

TWU 250A Cable Car Operator Paul E. Jones Framed Up By Newsom's MTA-MUNI-Civil Service Commission
https://youtu.be/mc0xTnBeCkA
SF TWU 250 A cable car worker Paul E. Jones is being targeted by SF Mayor Newsom's San Francisco Civil Service Commission members and a hearing about his termination was held on December 5, 2011. Jones is charged with not collecting fares and possible theft of funds but the MTA-Muni management have no outside witnesses and MTA Muni supervisors have conflicting stories about their case. They also admit that under former Mayor Gavin Newsom, the workers were being written up and harassed for voting against concessions. Despite these lies the SF Civil Commission members were complicit in going along with the management frame-ups orchestrated by Mayor Gavin Newsom as payback for their rejection three times of concession deals.
