Hannah-Beth Jackson has earned the endorsement of UFW and would like to thank Arturo S. Rodriguez for you this kind letter she received. It’s quite a wonderful acknowledgement of her work, especially where it says, “You have demonstrated exemplary leadership in supporting farmworkers and their families. We recognize your commitment to the farmworker movement and consider you to be an individual with gold status in the eyes of farmworkers.” HBJ is proud to have the endorsement of UFW and Dolores Huerta, and will continue to support our community of farmworkers in her next 4 years of office. Si Se Puede!
Please join me in launching my 2016 Campaign to continue to be your CA State Senator in District 19. Festivities begin at 9AM this Saturday, September 17th at our new Oxnard Campaign Headquarters, located at 141 S. A Street in Oxnard.

Let’s show the Republicans that CA State Senate District 19 is off the table!
“Senate Bill (SB) 1005, written by Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson (D – Santa Barbara), mandates that “gender-specific terms” in California laws such as “husband” and “wife” be replaced by the term “spouse” when referring to married couples. The changes are intended to be inclusive of all couples in registered domestic partnerships.
Jackson introduced the bill in February and received overwhelming bipartisan support on both the State Assembly and Senate floors, with the 80-member assembly voting 63-1 in favor of the bill and the 40-member senate voting 34-0.”

“A Huffington Post article on Tuesday honored State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson, representative of 19th Senate District, as one of 11 women championing political progress in the United States. Jackson was praised for advancing women’s equality and opportunity through legislation, most notably with the California Fair Pay Act, which was unanimously passed in the Senate in May and signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown on October 6, 2015.”
