serve extremist agenda, not students.
Riverside, CA – 06/15/23 – Today, the Riverside County Democratic Party (RCDP) , led by Chair Joy Silver, voiced strong support of the actions taken by California Governor Gavin Newsom, Attorney General Rob Bonta, and Superintendent of Education Tony Thurmond against the right-wing extremist majority currently in control of the Temecula Valley Unified School District Board of Education (Board).

Riverside, CA— 01/28/2023 — Yesterday, on International Holocaust Remembrance Day, two horrific videos, that of the October 2022 attack on Paul Pelosi by a right-wing extremist, and the other the murder of Tyre Nichols at the hands of the Memphis Police, were released to the public.
