When will it end? We are faced with that question over and over again. The structural racism in our society persists. Our incapacity to wake up to that reality continues. Every. Single. Day. in America. #GeorgeFloyd 

It’s a 3 day weekend. It’s nice outside. That doesn’t mean #COVID19  has gone away. Wash your hands. Stay 6 feet apart. Wear a face covering. Be smart. Your actions can literally save lives.

CA is now a vote by mail state. Every registered voter will receive a mail-in ballot for the Nov election. We’ll also provide safe in-person voting options. The right to vote is foundational to our democracy. No one should be forced to risk their health to exercise that right.

LA received 170 broken ventilators from the national stockpile. Rather than complaining, we put them on a truck, drove them up overnight, and had @Bloom_Energy  get to work fixing them. Monday they‘ll back in LA--fixed. That’s the spirit of CA.

RECAP: Nazis: very fine people Racist sheriff: unfairly treated Black athletes exercising 1A rights: sons of b****** and uninvited to WH.

When it comes to re-opening, SCIENCE -- not politics -- must be California's guide. CA has developed 6 indicators that will help guide how and when we decide to re-open our economy. This isn’t about an on/off switch. This will be a thoughtful process -- led by public health...
