The California Primary Elections will be on Tuesday, June 5!

Voters will be choosing candidates for positions ranging from US Senator to County Sheriff and everything in between.

The Whittier Area Peace & Justice Coalition encourages you to vote if you are eligible.  For your consideration, the WAPJC Steering Committee has endorsed the following candidate who we believe will advance the cause of Peace and Justice:

Lieutenant Governor - Gayle McLaughlin - No Party Preference
The position of Lieutenant Governor is analogous to Vice President but for the State.  For example, if the Governor were to die, the Lieutenant Governor takes over.  Also, if there is a tie vote in the State Senate, the Lieutenant Governor can break the tie.  The Lt. Gov. also serves on several official committees.
Gayle McLaughlin is endorsed by Our Revolution, the group started by Bernie Sanders supporters, and now she is endorsed by Whittier Peace, as well.
Why?  Because when she was Mayor of Richmond, CA in the Bay Area, she stood up to the Chevron Oil Refinery, making sure they paid their fair share in taxes and were responsible for worker and environmental safety. She opposes fracking.  And she supports single-payer healthcare and affordable housing.  Unlike others running for the position, she has not accepted corporate money.

United States Senate - No Endorsement Made
For US Senator, we have not endorsed any of the candidates.
Our current Senator Dianne Feinstein voted for the Iraq War in 2002 and as recently as this January voted to reauthorize the FISA Act to give the government loopholes to spy on Americans without a warrant.
Allison Hartson, a former teacher and an organizer against political corruption, is one of the candidates running to replace Feinstein.  Alison supports Medicare-for-All, and favors repealing the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) and closing unnecessary military bases.
But, despite receiving coverage on KPFK and other progressive outlets, and despite raising more small dollar donations than the other candidates, most voters haven't heard of Alison.
According to some polls, the candidate with the best chance of challenging Feinstein is current state senator Kevin de León.  Kevin does accept corporate money, but he supports single-payer healthcare and maybe he'll be more peaceful than Feinstein, although we could not find any mention of foreign policy positions on his campaign website.

There are several other positions and measures on the ballot for which WAPJC has not made any endorsements, but you are encouraged to read your ballot thoroughly.

Participating in elections is just one of the strategies that WAPJC employs to create a more peaceful and just society.

Whittier Area Peace & Justice Coalition is a nonprofit organization under Section 501(c)(4) of the IRS Code. Donations are NOT tax deductible.

In Peace,
The Steering Committee of Whittier Area Peace and Justice Coalition

WAPJC Mission Statement

The Whittier Area Peace and Justice Coalition is a broadly based group of local community members whose purpose is to share a vision for peace, justice and environmental well-being.  This vision is grounded in the beliefs that all life is sacred; that differences between people and nations can be resolved in non-violent ways; and that peace is more than the absence of war or the denial of conflict.

  "Peace hath higher tests of manhood  
than battle ever knew."

~ John Greenleaf Whittier

  "I criticize America because I love her and because
I want to see her to stand as the moral example of the world.
War anywhere intensifies the possibility of war everywhere.
When major world powers flaunt the authority of the United Nations
and embark on unilateral courses of action they open the door
to similar actions on the part of other nations."

~ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

  "To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public."
~ Theodore Roosevelt

  "We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty, we must remember always that accusation is not proof, and that conviction depends upon evidence and due process of law.  We will not walk in fear—one, of another.  We will not be driven by fear into an age of un-reason, if we dig deep in our history and our doctrine, and remember that we are not descended from fearful men; Not from men who feared to write, to speak, to associate, and to defend causes that were—for the moment—unpopular."
~ Edward R. Murrow

  "A little patience, and we shall see the reign of witches pass over, their spells dissolve, and the people, recovering their true sight, restore their government to its true principles.  It is true that in the meantime we are suffering deeply in spirit, and incurring the horrors of a war and long oppressions of enormous public debt… If the game runs sometimes against us at home we must have patience till luck turns, and then we shall have an opportunity of winning back the principles we have lost, for this is a game where principles are at stake."
~ Thomas Jefferson
commenting on the Alien and Sedition acts in 1798

Pity the Nation  ~  Lawrence Ferlinghetti

Pity the nation whose people are sheep,
and whose shepherds mislead them.
Pity the nation whose leaders are liars,
whose sages are silenced,
and whose bigots haunt the airwaves.
Pity the nation that raises not its voice,
except to praise conquerors and acclaim the bully as hero
and aims to rule the world with force and by torture.
Pity the nation that knows no other language but its own
and no other culture but its own.
Pity the nation whose breath is money
and sleeps the sleep of the too well fed.
Pity the nation —
oh, pity the people who allow their rights to erode
and their freedoms to be washed away.
My country, tears of thee, sweet land of liberty.

FDR quote
The Nightmare by Mark Bryan
