Immigrant rights lobby day
The California Immigrant Policy Center is in town for its 20th annual lobby day in support of immigrant rights. An interfaith ceremony and rally will begin at 9 a.m. on the west steps, where speakers will include Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León and Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon. Attendees will then visit legislators, asking them to vote for bills limiting the involvement of local law enforcement agencies with federal immigration authorities and seeking a waiver for California to sell health insurance to undocumented immigrants through its state exchange.
De León and Rendon will also speak to Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California, which brings young reproductive health activists to the Capitol each year, at 12:30 p.m. on the south steps. The organization is sponsoring legislation this session that would make it a crime to distribute illegal recordings of health care providers, a direct shot at anti-abortion activist David Daleiden, who released a controversial series of undercover videos last year that purported to show Planned Parenthood employees arranging the sale of aborted fetuses.
Poverty and inequality forum
Former Republican gubernatorial candidate Neel Kashkari did not make a friend of Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin when he spent five days in her city during his 2014 campaign posing as a homeless man, but his point about the startlingly widespread poverty that has persisted in California through a healthy economic recovery could not be ignored. Swearengin will join Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf and South Gate Mayor Jorge Morales for a discussion about poverty and inequality, hosted by the Public Policy Institute of California, at noon at the Sheraton Grand Sacramento on J Street.
