Before Deciding

When our representatives are making important decisions that impact all of our lives I believe it is important to ask one basic question before making
those decisions,
Is this good for
the children?

Just imagine what our world would be like if that question was asked prior to making decisions about going to war, the environment, education or healthcare.

1.  Wei-Ling Huber , Presidemt - UNITE HERE Local 2850,
 North Bay Hospitality Workers

2.  Erin Brockovich, Author, Consumer Activist

 ----

1. Wei-Ling Huber shares her road to activism that began in the university to  clamor for Ethnic Studies. Wei-Ling's research helped her to realize the best way to bring people of color to more equitable living conditions was through the labor movement. Wei-Ling talks about the plight of hospitality workers in Sonoma County where hotel rooms are expensive yet the hospitality workers often make just over minimum wage with heavy work loads in unsafe conditions. Wei-Ling announces a rally in support of hospitality workers in the stalled labor negotiations at the Hyatt Regency Sonoma Winecountry in Santa Rosa on Friday, July 13 at 1:30 pm. 

About our Guest: Wei-Ling Huber is a lifelong activist for justice,and has worked to improve and expand economic opportunities for Alameda, Contra Costa and Sonoma County workers since 1995 through her work with UNITE HERE 2850, the East Bay hospitality workers union. She has been the President of UNITE HERE Local 2850 since 2006 and a General Vice President of her international union since 2014.

2.  Erin Brockovich shares her story on becoming one of the most successful consumer activists in taking on PG&E in Hinkley, CA, in 1993, about which a movie was made called Erin Brockovich. Erin encourages us to break free from the box of other's expectations and to develop the self-esteem needed for the long and persistent fight for justice.  Erin comes to Sonoma County to help those who were victims of last October wildfire storm that appears to have been sparked by PG&E's negligent behaviour in protecting their equipment from nearby brush and trees as required as a public utility. Erin warns of legislation that would shield PG&E from accountability in future wildfire disasters in California, inspite of the corporation's vast wealth.

                                                                                                        Erin Brockovich

About our Guest: Erin Brockovich was born in Kansas in 1960. While working as a file clerk at a Los Angeles law firm in 1992, Brockovich uncovered documents that ultimately led to more than 600 residents of Hinkley, California, filing a lawsuit against utility giant PG&E. The $333 million settlement they received was the largest of its kind in the history of the United States. The story of Brokovich’s life and involvement in the case was the subject of the 2000 film Erin Brockovich, which starred Julia Roberts in the title role. Since the film’s release, Erin Brockovich has continued to work as a consumer advocate and environmental activist.

Sonoma County Board of Supervisors (BOS) cutting staff funding for the Sonoma County Commission on the Status of Women and for the Commission on Human Rights

 Really Sonoma County Board of Supervisors (BOS)! You are cutting staff funding for the Sonoma County Commission on the Status of Women at a time when women’s productive rights are in jeopardy and there is an effort to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment. A good example of that is on the federal level: Trump and his fellow Republicans are still trying to defund Planned Parenthood. With a majority of women on the Board, how was this allowed? Have they forgotten whose shoulders they are standing on and the continuous struggle to have a significant place at the table?
In addition the BOS is cutting the staff funding for the Sonoma County Human Rights Commission (HRC) at a time when The United States has pulled out of the United Nations Human Rights Council, with Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley calling it “a mockery of human rights” for allowing China, among other countries, to join, and for a statement that scrutinizes Israel’s treatment of the Palestinian people. In cutting county staff support, in my mind, they are degrading both commissions thus creating a high potential to fail. I encourage you to call your supervisor for your district and let them know this is not acceptable to you.
