Congratulations to West County Health Center in Occidental for 40 years of delivering high quality medical, dental and mental health services to underserved residents of rural Sonoma County!  I was honored to help celebrate this community milestone on Saturday.

The Cancer Resource Center in Mendocino County is an invaluable part of the North Coast community, and last night’s “Pure Mendocino” gala was a wonderful way to support the cause.  Beautiful evening at Dark Horse vineyard, with CRC’s founder Sara O’Donnell, Assemblymember Jim Wood, and vintner/cancer advocate Paul Dolan.

Last night I was an honored guest of the Novato Islamic Center at their Friday prayer and family potluck dinner.  I spoke about our country’s fundamental commitments to religious freedom, civil rights and immigration, which are being tested in some ugly ways in this year’s presidential campaign and answered a range of questions.  I’m grateful for the warmth and hospitality I received from this multi-generational group, in addition to the great food!  I assured them that I, and the constituents I represent, do not want them to fear discrimination or harassment because of their religion—and that we should work together to educate those who, out of ignorance, fear those who practice Islam.
