I’ve seen the value of stepping up my whole life. Both of my parents were FBI agents for over 20 years. When you have people like that as your role models, loyalty, bravery, and integrity become your way of life.

Until now, my way of serving has been through working to understand our planet and how we can live with it, including the dangerous parts like volcanoes and earthquakes. I give back by helping educate the next generation of scientists: young women and men from all backgrounds who will be the innovators, educators, and conservationists of the future.

I was moved to step out of my work boots and into the race for Congress because people like Donald Trump and Steve Knight are threatening that future by destroying some of the most basic things we all agree are important. Education, scientific research, disaster preparedness, critical infrastructure, national parks, and wildlife are all under assault.

Our economy thrives when we invest in our people and our planet. Trump and Knight both deny the science of climate change, which impacts our economy, health and way of life. Their attacks on immigrant families, women’s rights and health care coverage are offensive and damaging to the most vulnerable people in our society.

Trump and Knight are failing to deal with important issues like cybersecurity, senior care, and disability justice that will only become more important in the years ahead. I’m working to win the job of representing the people I care about and the places I love, because everyone should have a bright today and a brilliant tomorrow.

Over 300 new contributions in 12 hours!

Hey everyone, a quick update. 

Thanks to a massive support surge on Twitter last night, Jess has received over 300 contributions in 12 hours, with an average contribution of $25.

We must hit our $75,000 goal by the end of the month to move forward and it looks like we'll hit that goal! 

If you can help pitch in and get us over that $75,000 mark, we can then start building our team by bringing on new hires and build a true movement. At $100,000, we can open a new office and bring on two new people. 

Everyone, thank you for what you've done to date, this has been an inspiring campaign so far. 

Cheers,

Peter Hinga - Campaign Manager

New I F@*#ing Love Science Article

It's odd typing that headline for a Congressional race, but, then again, this is a different type of Congressional race.

We are trying to challenge the norms of politics in America. You all have shown your support already, and we are asking you to do it again. We have a professional video being edited now, and we need to raise money to complete (goal is stated on the CROWDPAC link). 

If you believe in the message below, and you want to see a bold message on science, climate change, and fact-based policy solutions...please make another contribution to the campaign. If you can't give, please pass the CROWDPAC link along to five friends and ask them to give $10.  

This is a critical moment for the campaign!

“If you hobble someone’s intellect – if you tell them to not use their brains – you are making people slaves to an ideology. In this case, the ideology is profit, profit, profit,” she tells us.

New Star Trek Videos

Hey Folks,

First of all, great day today. We passed $14k raised on CROWDPAC and we're close to 100 endorsements. 

We need to hit $35k on this site by the end of November, so please contribute if you can, or pass this link around to friends who would be interested in Jess's message and mission. 

Now, to Trek. 

We started this particular fundraising drive with a video that included Jess and Tim Russ - Jess now correctly uses thumbs out on the Vulcan Salute. 

We've fallen a bit behind in follow-up videos, so now you get THREE new pieces that have Jess chatting with Bob Picardo and John Billingsley (great banter in the videos). 

Check out all of the Trek videos here.

We hope to do several more of these as the campaign moves forward, so we'll keep you informed as new ones come along. 

Thanks for joining us on this journey, we couldn't have made it this far without you.

Cheers,

Peter Hinga (Campaign Manager)

p.s. shout out to Tanner and my buddy Darren for volunteering their time to put these videos together - this campaign is a solid group effort.

It is time for change

Progressive candidates have won or are leading in all 60 top targeted races tonight. 

In VA, Danica Roem, 33, became the first openly transgender person ever elected in the commonwealth. She did so by defeating the author of legislation that targeting transgender citizens. 

BOOM!

The country is ready for candidates of change, candidates like Jess. 

I know you have helped before, but if you can, please help again. We need your support to keep this campaign moving forward. 

If you can't contribute, please watch Jess's video on gun violence, and if you agree with her message, share with your community. 

We need your help. As tonight made clear, the country is ready for bold new leadership - help us get Jess's message out so voters can hear her voice.
