Letter to the editor: thank you, recall movement


Thank you to the women who organized the campaign to Recall Persky and the thousands of my neighbors who made the historic win possible. We have proved that just like reproductive rights, gun control and other issues, violence against women is a voting issue. Candidates who want the vote of women and our allies better take the issue seriously. If not, we’ll meet them at the polls in big numbers.

In this historical moment, when women’s rights are under attack, the women and men of this county stood our ground and I’m so proud to call this place home.
