Women's Week of Action For Hillary

There are over 150 women's events happening in over 20 states across the country this week, including rallies with Chelsea Clinton (don't miss her in PA!), women phone banks with Anne Holton (don't miss her in AZ!), and even a women's volunteer summit in Chicago with Mary Kay Henry of SEIU and Jess O'Connell of EMILY's List!. Thousands of volunteers will be joining our organizing and digital amplification efforts across the country - and we need you!

Ways to Engage
  • Change your Facebook cover photo: Attached are a series of Women Together and Deal Me In Facebook cover photos. We've also included a SMS women graphic to help build our list of incredible women supporters across the country. When you post, please encourage folks to visit to get more involved. Tomorrow, this page will also redirect to a great new women's vote toolkit with resources for our women volunteers!
  • Share our new Women-to-Women Call Tool: This is a great way for our women volunteers to call other women supporters from home. Share it far and wide to the favorite phone bankers and women volunteers in your life.
  • Help us celebrate our women volunteers: We've got a great Medium article on how women are the backbone of this campaign. Read and share it here! We're going to be amplifying volunteer stories all week like Carol in NY and Ana in TX. Send us your folks and we'll work to uplift them on our national channels. 
  • Encourage your members to attend events: Let us know what states you have in-state capacity and we'll send you a list of events happening in that area. We'd love your members to help build up these events. You can also search online at 
Message Guidance
  • Women are - and will continue to be - one of the most important driving forces behind HRC’s campaign.
  • We celebrate and are so grateful for the women who have gotten us this far - we couldn't have done it without you but we all know we aren't done yet.
  • We are calling on women to step up their engagement between now and Election Day so we can win on November 8 -- this election matters and none of us want to look back on November 9th and think we could have done more.
  • Let's come together and work as hard as we can every day to make sure our next president is someone who stands with and embodies our values -- to make sure our next president is Hillary Clinton

Copy of Loretta Sanchez Letter to Governor Brown (08/31/2016)

Sept. 1, 2016
Good afternoon fellow NWPC sisters,

Yesterday, I wrote a letter to Governor Jerry Brown urging him to help stop the cronyism and special privilege that exists in the legal system. For too long, individuals with influence and power have been granted special privileges at the expense of their victims. I ask the Governor to sign AB2888, which would close the loophole in sentencing of sexual assault and ensures that anyone convicted of sexual assault in California cannot be sentenced to probation. 

The LA Times covered this letter today in their online publication (

I ask that you stand with me in urging Governor Brown to sign AB2888. You can reach his office at (916) 445-2841.

Please see the full text of my letter to Governor Brown below:

August 31, 2016

The Honorable Edmund G. Brown Jr.
Governor of California
State Capitol, Suite 1173
Sacramento, CA 95814

Dear Governor Brown,

I write to you today in support of AB 2888 by California Legislators Assemblyman Bill Dodd (D-Napa), Assemblyman Evan Low (D-Silicon Valley) and Senator Jerry Hill (D-San Mateo and Santa Clara) that would ensure incarceration to predators found guilty of sexual assault.

As the highest-ranking woman on the Armed Services Committee and the founder and Chair of the Congressional Women in the Military Caucus, I understand from testimonies that sexual assault can happen anywhere, anytime and by anyone.

In 2005, I successfully pushed to address sexual assault in the military with a policy that protects victims, empowers prosecutors, and creates a zero-tolerance policy toward sexual assault and abuse.

All victims of sexual assault deserve equal treatment regardless of socio-economics, education or immigration status. However, the reality is that the law can and has failed victims by giving well-connected and affluent predators like Brock Turner an advantage with an alumni judge who will neglect the crime and ultimately disregard the victim.

During the Turner hearing, the victim read aloud to the man who raped her, “You took away my worth, my privacy, my energy, my time, my intimacy, my confidence, my own voice, until today. The damage is done, no one can undo it. And now we both have a choice. We can let this destroy us, I can remain angry and hurt and you can be in denial, or we can face it head on, I accept the pain, you accept the punishment, and we move on.”

However, there was no real punishment in this case because a judge abused his discretion to help a favored athlete at his alma mater. There is a serious problem in this state where well-connected individuals believe they are above accountability for sexual assault and other criminal acts because they or their families are well connected. This bill should end any impression that absolute misuse of power and influence allows people to assault others sexually with virtual impunity.

I urge you to read the victim’s full statement (below) before you make a decision about AB 2888. What she feels and knows is the pain that too many other victims of sexual assault know: absent a real punishment, they feel like there was never a crime that took place and cannot move on.

Thank you for your attention to this urgent matter. I look forward to partnering with you to address the continuing violence against women.


Rep. Loretta Sanchez (CA-46)

CC: Assemblyman Evan Low (D-Silicon Valley)
CC: Senator Jerry Hill (D-San Mateo and Santa Clara)
