California is the true freedom state. Protecting liberty from a rising tide of oppression taking root in statehouses. Weakness, masquerading as strength. Small men in big offices. Freedom is who we are – anyone from anywhere can accomplish anything here.

Thank you, @POTUS  for having the back of Californians as we continue to be impacted by intense winter storms. Serious winds and rain are still anticipated throughout the state. Stay safe and remain vigilant.

DeSantis has decided black history is irrelevant and “lacks educational value.” “Don’t Say Gay” —> “Don’t Say Black” Apparently “freedom” means erasing our history and limiting speech.

Monterey Park should have had a night of joyful celebration of the Lunar New Year. Instead, they were the victims of a horrific and heartless act of gun violence. Our hearts mourn as we learn more about the devastating acts of last night. We are monitoring the situation closely.

Every country struggles with mental illness. But the USA has a gun homicide rate 26 TIMES HIGHER than our peers. The difference is how the @GOP  have bowed down to the gun industry. The difference is how easy it is to access to guns and high capacity magazines in our country.

This is what a hero looks like. Brandon did what no one should ever have to do -- stopped a gunman at his place of work from killing countless others. Forever grateful for your courage, Brandon.

At the hospital meeting with victims of a mass shooting when I get pulled away to be briefed about another shooting. This time in Half Moon Bay. Tragedy upon tragedy.

Large capacity magazines do not belong on our streets.

People were just gunned down at a dance club and their workplace -- and THIS is your response. I look forward to the day your trash organization is obsolete.


Abortion is legal in California. It will remain that way. I just signed a bill that makes our state a safe haven for women across the nation. We will not cooperate with any states that attempt to prosecute women or doctors for receiving or providing reproductive care.

REMINDER: CA, you are now REQUIRED to wear a mask in public spaces. We’re seeing too many people with faces uncovered. Wearing a face covering is critical for keeping people safe and healthy, keeping businesses open and getting people back to work. Do your part. Wear your mask.

California is going to make its own insulin. It’s simple. People should not go into debt to get life-saving medication.

SCOTUS is letting private citizens in Texas sue to stop abortion?! If that's the precedent then we'll let Californians sue those who put ghost guns and assault weapons on our streets. If TX can ban abortion and endanger lives, CA can ban deadly weapons of war and save lives.

Refresher on what a “pro-life” agenda ACTUALLY looks like: - gun safety laws - taking action on climate change - protecting LGBT rights - healthcare for all - expanding pre-natal care - expanding mental healthcare - expanding childcare - universal preschool - free school meals

What @GovRonDeSantis  and @GregAbbott_TX  are doing isn’t clever, it’s cruel. I’m formally requesting the DOJ begin an immediate investigation into these inhumane efforts to use kids as political pawns.

You don’t believe in climate change. You are excused from this conversation.
