Residents of Newport Beach have a right to know how their elected representatives conduct official business. I attended Tuesday's Newport Beach City Council meeting, where Senate Bill 54 was on the agenda.
The council announced they had already voted in closed session to join President Trump's lawsuit against the state of California to invalidate SB 54, a "sanctuary state" law that doesn't require law enforcement to report arrestees of certain crimes to immigration authorities.
We, the members of Women for American Values and Ethics (WAVE), strongly oppose the decision of the Orange County Board of Supervisors to join a Department of Justice lawsuit against California’s sanctuary laws. We also are deeply troubled by the resolution passed by the Board of Supervisors that condemns Senate Bill 54 (California Values Act), which bans local law enforcement from sharing immigration status information to federal authorities.
SACRAMENTO — Impassioned speeches from oil-drilling foes on the steps of the state Capitol on Thursday sounded like echo from earliest days of the environmental movement in California — and a crowd of about 700 people opposing the Trump administration’s expansive offshore extraction plan relished every word.
Kathleen Treseder, an ecology professor from UC Irvine, won applause for her opening comment: “I am a scientist.”

Many who marched, like Cindy Gitter, 52, of Ladera Ranch, say they hadn’t been politically active before. Now she co-chairs the environmental working group for Women for American Values and Ethics, which seeks to advance progressive causes.
“There’s a feeling of really positive and shared energy,” she said. “It was the first march I ever participated in in my life.”
The marches, Gitter said, “show people that you have a voice, whether you consider yourself disenfranchised or part of the minority. I think it symbolizes the right and the privilege and, on some level, the responsibility to participate in democracy.”
