Conejo Valley high school students' participation in the National Student Walkout on March 14 and the upcoming March For Our Lives -- sandwiched around the shooting at the Oaks Mall on the 17th and multiple threats of violence at Westlake High School -- have all brought local awareness of our national epidemic of gun violence to a fever pitch. Indivisible: Conejo remains ready to assist our students as they participate in the march this Saturday and another walkout on 4/20 -- and we remain at the forefront of the debate over how to enhance gun restrictions and keep our community safe.
Our CVUSD Challengers Forum on March 4 gave the candidates a chance to present their visions for our school district's future -- setting them up to defeat extremists Mike Dunn and John Andersen in November. Speaking of which, we're getting ready for Sunday's first Conejo Valley canvass with the DCCV, in Newbury Park. And we're helping area students organize their participation in L.A.'s March for Our Lives on 3/24. Check our calendar for details!
Even as we get ready for Indivisible: Conejo's CVUSD Challengers Forum, coming up this Sunday, we're helping facilitate area students' plans for participating in upcoming actions protesting America's epidemic of gun violence -- including school walkouts and the March For Our Lives on 3/24. We're also preparing for our first canvassing day in the Conejo Valley on 3/11 (in partnership with the DCCV) and our St. Patrick's Day trip to beautiful Bakersfield (to flip CA's 21st congressional district)!
The CVUSD school board's unanimous vote to censure trustee Mike Dunn, after he threatened the employer of a blogger who criticized him, shifted the debate heading into the 2018 campaign. Indivisible: Conejo helped lead the protests against Dunn, and on March 4 we'll host a forum for the candidates to replace him and his enabler John Andersen. There's also a calendar full of upcoming canvassing opportunities and community events!
Tensions boiled over this week surrounding the Conejo Valley USD school board -- and right-wing extremist Mike Dunn, in particular -- after he threatened a critic's employer. Next week's school board meeting will be a venue for protesting his unethical and dangerous behavior - and Indivisible: Conejo will be in the middle of those protests. Meanwhile, our Early Retirement Party for Rep. Steve Knight was a great success, and efforts to oust Rep. David Valadao in CA-21 got off to a fine start.
