Community Ceasefire Night Walk This Friday

I want to invite you to participate in a Night Walk this Friday aimed at reducing youth violence and transforming our community.

Designed to bring community members together, San Jose’s first Night Walk is on Friday, April 18, and starts at Saint John Vianney Church at 4600 Hyland Ave., in San Jose, from 7-8:30 p.m. Opening prayers and introductions begin at 6:30 p.m.

Night Walks have been a strategy for crime prevention in other Bay Area cities, all with one purpose: to rebuild and establish good relationships in communities.
This is part of the Ceasefire programs that have been effective in lowering gang shooting rates in cities like Boston.

The effort is led by residents of Alum Rock, community leaders from People Acting in Community Together (PACT), and faith leaders from Saint John Vianney, Saint Philips and Bible Ways.

Assembly Speaker pro Tem Campos honors Cesar Chavez; family visits Capitol

SACRAMENTO – In a memorable day at the Capitol, Assembly Speaker pro Tem Nora Campos, D-San Jose, led the ceremonies honoring Cesar Chavez on the Assembly floor today.

Campos, who grew up in the same San Jose community where Chavez began organizing farm workers, also hosted 10 members of the Chavez family, including three siblings: sisters Rita Chavez Medina, Eduwiges Chavez Lastra and brother Librado Chavez.

The ceremonies were held to kick off a weekend of celebrations honoring Chavez, which will culminate with a state holiday on Monday in his name.

“When I was growing up, Cesar Chavez was a hero to me and a friend of my parents,” Campos said in remarks she made on the floor. “I remember walking in marches where he led thousands of everyday people through Modesto, Salinas, and Yuba City to name a few. He was my inspiration that one person can change the world. That one person can move us to justice for all. That one person can make us all see that human rights are a shared value.”

She said much remains to be done to carry out Cesar Chavez’s legacy.

“As we celebrate Cesar Chavez by being with our families and in our communities on Monday, we should remember that we still have much to do to make his dream come true,” Campos said.

Campos Statement On Santa Clara County Board Of Supervisors Vote On Withholding Funding For Emergency Response Times

A permanent funding solution is needed. Assembly Speaker pro Tem’s ACA 3 would allow communities to vote on boosting police and fire services

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – “Today’s action by the county only calls attention to the larger issue: that a permanent funding solution is needed. Our police and fire need more resources, not less. Instead of fighting for scarce resources, we should go to the community and let them decide whether to boost their police and fire services. I’ve got a bill that does exactly that: it allows communities to vote on increasing public safety funding, which I’m confident they will.”

The 27th Assembly District includes roughly half of the City of San Jose in Santa Clara County – the tenth largest city in the nation, and third largest in California. Assembly Speaker pro Tempore Campos served as a San Jose City Councilwoman before she was elected to the Assembly in 2010.  For more, visit www.assembly.ca.gov/campos.

 

Campos Statement On San Jose State Hate Crime Incident Report

Assembly Select Committee on Campus Climate to explore why the university’s response wasn’t stronger and felony charges weren’t filed

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – “The people deserve to know why the president hasn’t taken a stronger position about why this happened. And the people deserve to know why the district attorney doesn’t file felony charges. The longer they stay silent on these two issues, the more accepted this behavior becomes. This is about holding people accountable and making sure this never happens again. This is why the Assembly Select Committee on Campus Climate, which I’m serving on, will be coming to San Jose to hear directly from the community. The community deserves no less.”

The 27th Assembly District includes roughly half of the City of San Jose in Santa Clara County – the tenth largest city in the nation, and third largest in California.

Boosting Economic Opportunity in Low Income Neighborhoods

(Sacramento) – Assemblymember Nora Campos (D-San Jose) authored Assembly Bill 495 to create economic development and community investment in low income neighborhoods. AB 495, which has now been approved by the State Assembly, will establish the California Community Investment Initiative in the Governor’s Office of Economic Development and Business (GoBiz). Assemblymember Campos says the measure is needed because, “California needs a formal structure for attracting private, socially responsible investment in low income neighborhoods on a meaningful scale.” Here’s more in this Assembly Access video.
