If you would like to help, there are several ways you can show your love for these kids: BOOK DONATIONS One of the first things you can do is donate a book. Go to http://longbeach.gov/press-releases/long-beach-launches-book-donation-drive-for-arriving-migrant-children/ We need books in English and Spanish. VOLUNTEER Organizations and any individual interested in volunteering can also learn more about the temporary shelter and fill out a volunteer interest form. DONATIONS For anyone interested in making a monetary donation, the Long Beach Community Foundation has created the Migrant Children Support Fund. Donations made to the fund will be awarded to grants to organizations that will provide educational and play items for the children during their stay in Long Beach, and gift cards to assist the children as they are reunited with their families. Uses of these charitable funds will be updated as the needs arise during the children’s stay in Long Beach.

ORANGE COUNTY LEGISLATORS CONDEMN KKK Activity in Huntington Beach –April 9
Senators Dave Min, Tom Umberg and Assemblywoman Cottie Petrie-Norris speak out ahead of KKK-promoted “White Lives Matter” march this weekend
“We unequivocally condemn white nationalism and the racist ideology promoted by the Ku Klux Klan. While we acknowledge the rights of all Americans — even the vilest racists out there — to express their opinions, we want to loudly and clearly state that the views expressed by the KKK and other white nationalist groups do not reflect the views of Orange County’s residents or elected officials.
“Our rich diversity makes Orange County and Huntington Beach stronger and better. We join the Huntington Beach City Council in condemning white supremacy and applaud it for planning a series of pro-diversity events to counter the disgusting message being promoted by the KKK and other organizers of the White Lives Matter rally this weekend.”
The results are disappointing but not tragic. The 48th was created to favor Republicans. It was quite an accomplishment to gain the seat in 2018 and dismiss a do nothing Representative that had been contributing next to zero. Harley Rouda served us admirably from 2018 till now. He will be back, with our help. See his statement by clicking this link:https://harleyforcongress.com/media-center/results/
