Remembering the 2017 Fires, $$ for San Rafael, Addressing Violence Against Indigenous People, & More: A Message from Rep. Huffman

Hello, This month, I stood with friends, families, and survivors to mark the five-year anniversary of the 2017 wildfires in Sonoma.

Fighting for Climate Action, Updating our National Fisheries Law, & More: A Message from Rep. Huffman

Hello, Ever since I first set foot in the halls of Congress as your Representative, I’ve been committed to advancing science-based climate action.

Pushing for Climate Action, Defending Marriage Equality Community Project Funding & More: A Message from Rep. Huffman

Standing Up Against Extreme SCOTUS Decisions: A Message from Rep. Huffman

Hello,  This has been a difficult month for us all in the face of an avalanche of extreme, precedent-breaking decisions by the Supreme Court. The extremist, out of touch judges have stripped people in America of their fundamental rights, demolished the wall separating church and state, and handcuffed government agencies from being able to uphold public safety laws and protect the environment.  Rep. Huffman speaks in front of SCOTUS following the overturning of Roe …  Continue Reading

Gun Violence Prevention, Defending Democracy, and More: A Message from Rep. Huffman

Hello,We have a gun violence epidemic in our country, a crisis that is uniquely American.

More than “Thoughts & Prayers”- Addressing the American Gun Violence Epidemic: A Message from Rep. Huffman

Hello,Last week, we lost 21 innocent lives in a senseless act of terror at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.

Let me be clear: this is an epidemic that is uniquely American.  Since 2020, gun violence has been the …  Continue Reading

Defending Reproductive Rights: A Message from Rep. Huffman

Hello,Last week, I was outraged to see the leaked draft of the Supreme Court opinion overturning Roe v. Wade. Let me make sure one thing is very clear: in California and other states that care about women's rights, abortion will remain legal and safe.       But for millions of women in other states, the fundamental right to make their own decisions about abortion and potentially other reproductive services is about to be taken away by a radical Supreme Court. …  Continue Reading

What’s Happening in Congress? A Message from Rep. Huffman

Hello, It is incredibly heartbreaking and troubling to witness Vladimir Putin’s unprovoked and unjustified war break out in Ukraine. One thing is clear: Russia alone is responsible for the destruction and catastrophic loss of life this war will bring. Russia has violated the core principles that uphold global peace and security, seeking to change the borders of a sovereign country by force.   Along with our allies, we have and will continue to impose severe measures that will …  Continue Reading
