    13:30:24 From Marcy Winograd : If you haven’t already done so, please sign on, as a DNC delegate, at the link below to encourage Biden to hire a foreign policy team that will lead on the world’s stage with diplomacy and dignity, rather than a rush to war, occupation and drone attacks. Biden’s top foreign policy advisors were involved in crafting Biden’s support for the Iraq invasion, drawing up weekly kill lists for drone operators targeting the Middle East, and lobbying for government contracts for military contractors in the weapons and surveillance business.

13:35:07 From Marcy Winograd : To be honest, sometimes I don’t know which is worse–
13:35:15 From Marcy Winograd : Trump or Biden’s foreign policy team.
13:35:17 From Audrey Wong : Do you think Bernie saw that Trump was becoming more fascist and decided to suspend his campaign to defeat Trump?

13:36:14 From Audrey Wong : Thank you for your service Josie!
13:37:11 From Mani Kang : Josie Caballero, exactly!

13:37:52 From Marcy Winograd : Katie Porter and Julia Brownley, too!
13:38:04 From David Monkawa : thanks so much for your leadership. Scientists say the threat of nuclear war is the #1 danger to human existence now. This not being addressed is incomprehensible. Sanctions on 30 countries and 7 wars?

Hypocrisy.

13:42:55 From Josie Caballero : yes, Ron would love too

13:49:06 From Audrey Wong : Thank you Josie and Robert!

13:50:57 From Audrey Wong : omg!
13:51:09 From Paul Huntley : as a veteran ’76-82, this kind of racist lingo is commonplace.
13:51:18 From Dr Ron Birnbaum – CD 28 : yes, this is pervasive

13:54:02 From Mani Kang : Thank you Josie Caballero and Robert Nelson.
And everyone here!
13:54:07 From Alexander Hagen : This White Supremacy goes back thousands of years (6000) – The mentality today is hegemony – it means all societies must be eventually brought under the control of the Imperial Power. Key is education?
13:54:51 From Dr Ron Birnbaum – CD 28 : The recruiting ads right now need to change
13:54:55 From Alexander Hagen : this will lead to perpetual war – until the whole world is brought under “a unified BoschLand” – Churchill
13:55:17 From Alireza Mosallaie : What about the booths at colleges when they were in sessions for the army
13:55:39 From Mani Kang : Very sadly true, Josie.

13:56:09 From Mani Kang : yes

14:06:03 From Michelle Boley : agreed! sorry I got muted again. excited to join.the zoom

14:06:47 From Christine Shimizu : Who is running against him in this election?
14:07:31 From Michelle Boley : yes, and we had many people who didn’t receive crossover ballots and their votes were discounted if they wrote it in on NPP ballots
14:08:14 From Samia Assed : Say it
14:08:21 From Denis P. Recendez | CA CD 32 | he/him : ^^^^
14:08:40 From Michelle Boley : wow. that’s terrifying. is that why Trump is attacking them now? it would make sense.
14:09:48 From Christine Shimizu : Excellent analysis Alexander!
14:09:48 From Michelle Boley : oh yeah, cross-check. what a nightmare
14:11:29 From Alireza Mosallaie : I was a poll worker and to see the restrictions that the government is putting on the right to vote was disheartening. To have the cooperate government to have the election in their pockets and the candidates that they want get into the office to continue the cycle
14:12:01 From Michelle Boley : hahahahahah. good!
14:12:10 From Paul Huntley : everybody eat a donut! wee need to be 800lbs!!!

14:13:23 From Christine Shimizu : I didn’t see that! I will attend!
14:13:29 From Mindy Pfeiffer : I was also a poll worker in 2016, 2018, and what was even worse was all the errors I witnessed. In 2016 NPP voters were not being told to ask for a crossover ballot, at my voting place I told each one to go back and request the Dem crossover ballot, but across the room the other precinct was not doing that.
14:13:32 From Michelle Boley : just joined!
14:13:46 From Sudi Farokhnia : can you please share rhe link of the call for election integrity here?
14:14:02 From Sudi Farokhnia : which slack? CA?
14:15:27 From Paul Huntley : #DonutMeUs
14:15:38 From Mani Kang : 😅

14:17:30 From Hanieh Jodat : The article above will cover the John Lewis Voting Right’s Act.
14:22:40 From Denis P. Recendez | CA CD 32 | he/him : Participants, please use the “Raise Hand” feature if you wish to ask a question.
14:23:04 From Alexander Hagen : people should not pay for housing
14:24:16 From Alexander Hagen : We should have the right to sleep somewhere without being required to pay for the priviledge we need to share the earth – not rent it out –
14:24:51 From Alexander Hagen : you cant even sleep in your car!
14:25:11 From Marcy Winograd : Question: Susie, who is the author of that bill that makes it impossible for homeless people to get housing?
14:25:17 From Victoria Thompson CD 7 : I see more homeless every week. I do power walks with a friend and we see encampments all over.
14:25:33 From Alexander Hagen : in the richest country in the world!
14:31:13 From Victoria Thompson CD 7 : Ben Hauck in the house. Welcome brother!
14:31:33 From Robert M. Nelson – Bobby to Denis P. Recendez | CA CD 32 | he/him(Privately) : Need to sign off I can get to platfom commitee Thanks for the help I hope I was effecive Bobby
14:33:13 From Steven Gibson : ACLU or legal aid
14:33:25 From Steven Gibson : Safe parking Los Angeles
14:35:02 From Steven Gibson : Only half the shelter space needed in Los Angeles

14:36:32 From Marcy Winograd : I’m so sad Lorraine didn’t beat Lee.
14:36:44 From Mindy Pfeiffer : The same thing happened in East Pasadena. There was a motel that was going to be converted for housing, but a church group got 200 people to come and protest against it, and the project was halted.
14:39:22 From Victoria Thompson CD 7 : That is so sad Mindy.
14:39:40 From Mindy Pfeiffer : Yes, it is very sad and wrong.
14:43:35 From Audrey Wong : No sorry! Torrance SUCKS!
14:44:21 From Audrey Wong : YES!!!! Jeanna!
14:44:25 From Marcy Winograd : Jeanna is such a powerful speaker.
14:44:48 From David Monkawa : What should we be pushing to include that goes beyond the Justice in police Act of 2020 advanced by the democrats? Something that has a chance of getting on?
14:45:13 From Jeanna Harris (She/Her/Troublemaker) : https://www.blmla.org/newsfeed/2020/4/16/black-los-angeles-demands-in-light-of-covid-19-and-rates-of-black-death
14:45:25 From Marcy Winograd : I think the fight is in the states and cities, that where the policing is funded, that’s where the prisons are built and paid for.
14:45:38 From Alexander Hagen : 6000 years of subjugation !
14:46:10 From Victoria Thompson CD 7 : I just saw a video that showed how the DNC has co-opted BLM and is receiving donations intended for BLM. The DNC is so manipulative! Biden and Trump were in a horse race until George Floyd, Amaud Aubrey, and Brianna Taylor were utilized to cause National Outrage.
I am not saying BLM is not Legitimate. It absolutely is LEGITIMATE!! I am saying the DNC has successfully co-opted BLM cause for the DNC’s benefit.
14:49:22 From Alexander Hagen : or telling a Black friend to go car camping during the Rona – imagining the danger for a Black male friend doing something as innocent as car camping

14:51:52 From Christine Shimizu : sterioid use
14:51:54 From Audrey Wong : Police get paid bank too.
14:52:57 From Jamie McDole CD6 : Some police. not all. I know many guys who left police die to the politics and now work AT&T. So many! So be nice to your phone men. A chunk had too many morals to be police.
14:53:24 From Victoria Thompson CD 7 : Police make all their money on overtime.
14:54:19 From Christine Shimizu : Jackie Lacy has to go
14:54:30 From Hanieh Jodat : She is long overdue
