As California’s June 7 primary nears, the Hillary Clinton campaign on Wednesday will begin weekly “women-to-women” phone banks in move than 30 locations throughout the state — including two in San Diego.
The campaign said supporters and volunteers will reach out to women voters and focus on Clinton’s support for such measures as equal pay for women, paid family leave, affordable childcare, and other initiatives to support women and families.
Retiring California Sen. Barbara Boxer will participate in the first phone bank.
“If you look at America’s history, our greatest Presidents have been the ones who lift us up — and Hillary Clinton has been lifting up women and families her entire career,” said Boxer.
“We need California voters to rally behind her so we can defeat Donald Trump — a man who continues to show that he has no respect for women and whose policies would put our families at risk!”
The phone banks in San Diego County are at 1515 Sequoia Lane in Vista from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and at 7765 North Avenue in Lemon Grove from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Clinton faces Vermont Gov. Bernie Sanders in the California primary, but has a large lead in delegates and is expected to be the Democratic nominee.
