Meet Leta Bonin, representing “Close the Gap CA”

Close the Gap CA is a statewide recruiting campaign to find talented, progressive women to run and win seats in the California legislature in 2014 and 2016.

Over the past 10 years, women’s representation in our state legislature has declined from 30% to 25%; women of color dropped from 44% of women legislators to just 32% today.

Fortunately, we can reverse the decline:

In 2014 and 2016, nearly 50% of Assembly and Senate seats will open up.

Progressive women can win many of them.
With focus and a well-funded strategy, we can close the gap and not just the gender gap.

Research shows that when we elect progressive women, we are taking steps toward closing the school funding gap, the access gap to affordable health and reproductive care, and the growing gap between the wealthy and those in poverty.

Working with women’s political and civic organizations, past and current legislators and with public school advocates, Planned Parenthood Affiliates of CA and women in the forefront of anti-poverty efforts, we can identify, recruit and connect promising prospects to the resources that will enable them to run and win.
