Expressing gratitude

John, With a busy election season coming to a close, Thanksgiving is a welcome opportunity to slow down, spend time with family and loved ones, and reflect on the things for which we are grateful. One thing I’ll definitely be thinking about is how grateful I am that you’v…

Thoughts from COP27

John, I just got back from the COP27 Climate Summit in Egypt, and I wanted to share some of my reflections and experiences with you. John, there’s no doubt that we’re living in a real-time climate crisis with worsening droughts, catastrophic wildfires, and rising sea leve…

My sincerest gratitude

John, Since the beginning of my time in Congress, I have worked tirelessly to meet the critical needs in every part of our diverse region. Serving California’s 2nd District has been the honor of my life, and I’m grateful for voters once again placing their trust and confid…

Clarence Thomas is shielding Lindsey Graham

John, Above all else, I strive to uphold my oath of office and protect our rights, freedoms, and democracy in everything I do. That includes standing in support of my colleagues on the January 6 Select Committee as they continue to uncover the full scope of the violent in…

Why are gas prices continuing to rise in California?

John Our state now has the highest gas prices in the nation. We’re paying an average of $5.75 at the gas pump statewide, which is a full $2.55 above the national average! Despite the stability of global crude prices, the price at the pump in California has spiked as multi…

Not giving up

John xxxxxx Last week, my colleagues on the January 6th Select Committee resumed their work revealing the full truth of the violent insurrection on the Capitol. We have known for some time that Donald Trump bears substantial responsibility for the violent insurrection at …

How far we’ve come (and what’s ahead)

John, At this point in the 2020 election, we weren’t certain about where our future was headed. But we rallied, organized, and took action. Thanks to your energy and dedication to upholding progressive values, we raised over $100,000 to help President Biden defeat Donald …

Jared is working to create paw-sitive change

John – It’s nice to meet you, I’m Truman the cat! After lots of purr-sistent meowing, my human (Jared Huffman) finally let me help out with the campaign! I can’t be with him on the House floor, so the least I could do is send you a quick note. I may be just a cat, and …

She’s making history

John, The tide is turning our way in the home stretch of this midterm election cycle, and there’s no better proof than deep-red Alaska. This month, in a widely watched special election to replace the late Rep. Don Young, Alaska voters defied political pundits and made his…

We won’t sacrifice public & environmental health

  John, Democrats accomplished a major environmental victory last month by securing the largest-ever federal investment in climate action. However, this win did not come easily – after weeks of deliberation in the Senate, the final version of the Inflation Reduction Act …

We’re not done yet

John, Historically, voter turnout is much lower in non-presidential election years. But in this year’s mid-term elections, we’re working to defy that trend. Already in primary elections in California and many states across the country, turnout has surpassed 2018 midterm ge…

Support public accountability

  John, In recent years, we’ve seen an alarming pattern of right-wing political groups self-identifying as “churches” to take advantage of special tax rules that shield their activities from public scrutiny and disclosure. It’s cynical, corrupt, and it’s a growing problem…

We need more climate advocates in Congress

  John, The climate crisis is the most pressing challenge facing our generation. Jared has long been on the frontlines of climate action in Congress because he knows that complacency is simply not an option. Climate change, clean energy, and environmental protection can’…

year-round wildfire season

A win for climate action and working families

  John, The sweeping funding bill we just passed will fundamentally change our fight against climate change and will provide long-awaited relief to families everywhere. The Inflation Reduction Act is the largest-ever federal investment in climate action. After decades of…

This is a turning point

Jared wants to hear from you

The public needs to know

  John — We have known for some time that Donald Trump bears some responsibility for the violent insurrection at the Capitol on January 6, 2021. After all, he summoned the mob, filled them with lies about the election, and directed them to go to the Capitol that fateful d…

A disturbing path

Something we CAN do on the climate crisis

Justice Thomas must recuse himself

More than “thoughts and prayers”

some crypto is bad for the climate

why me?
