About California's Low Cost Automobile Insurance Program:
California Law requires that all drivers of vehicles within the State maintain evidence of financial responsibility. California's Low Cost Automobile Program (CLCA) was established by the Legislature in 1999 and exists pursuant to California Insurance Code Section 11629.7 as a program designed to provide income eligible persons with liability insurance protection at affordable rates as a way to meet California's financial responsibility laws.
However, too many income eligible drivers remain uninsured because the costs of standard insurance premiums are beyond their financial reach. Learn about affordable solutions that may help protect you, your friends, family and other drivers on the road.
Effective January 01, 2015 a new law, SB 1273 passed by the Governor on September 19, 2014, provides an exception to the three-year continuously licensed requirement to allow drivers with less than 3 years verifiable driving experience to participate in the program and increased vehicle values from $20,000 to $25,000. For more information on the CLCA program please visit: www.mylowcostauto.com.

Californians Respond to Demands for Criminal Justice Reform
Few can argue the 2020 Presidential Election was simultaneously strange and historic. Amid the remnants of dystopia, we will continue to endure until President-elect Joe Biden takes office in January.
Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris were swept to victory this year because Blacks and other people of color showed up and engaged in the electoral process in unprecedented numbers.
Whether it was the Black communities in Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Georgia or the Latinx communities in places like Nevada and Arizona, they coalesced with Black women and an unlikely coalition of Whites and fought for the nation in its ongoing quest to become a more perfect union.

DA's CARE Center Increases Food Distribution Efforts to Help Those in Need
The San Diego County District Attorney’s office made some adjustments to increase food distributions in order to help families and individuals who may be food-insecure, it was announced Thursday.
District Attorney Summer Stephan said that before the Coronavirus pandemic, her CARE Center in National City had a monthly food distribution to help those in need. After demand for extra assistance increased due to hardships brought by the pandemic, Stephan’s office stepped up to serve residents every week. “The goal of the CARE Center is to build safer communities through evidence-based prevention and intervention in collaboration with our valued community partners,” Stephan said in a statement.
Last year, the CARE center’s food distribution helped just more than 1,800 people and so far this year, it’s served over 6,800 individuals.
“During this challenging time, we are seeing an increased need for all sorts of resources-- especially food,” Stephan’s statement continued. “Thanks to the big heart of San Diego philanthropists and volunteers, we’ve been able to provide food to thousands of families through our DA CARE Center.” Residents in need are given a prepared bag of food to help them fend off hunger. CARE Center staff offer contactless pickup to service providers who then drop off the goods to those in need.
