This Week: National Wear Red Day and More


This week‚ members of the legislature participated in “National Wear Red Day” to raise awareness about women’s heart health. February is American Heart Month and cardiovascular disease is the number one health related killer in women‚ causing 1 in 3 deaths in women every year. However‚ it is believed that 87% of all heart issues are preventable.

National Wear Red Day began in 2004 and always falls on the first Friday in February. It was created to raise awareness about these alarming statistics and eradicate heart disease in millions of women in the U.S.

Women's Caucus Ag TourWomen’s Caucus Ag Tour

Earlier this week my staff and I joined the Women’s Caucus Ag Tour hosted at Montna Farms‚ a family operated farm in Sutter County who specializes in premium‚ short grain specialty Japanese rice. Presenters included Virginia Getz and Jeff McCreary of Ducks Unlimited; Ivy Brittain and Todd Manly of North California Water Association; Paul Buttner of Cal Rice; And Analise Rivero and Jacob Katz of Cal Trout.

The tour demonstrated the importance of collaboration between agriculture and habitat conservation‚ and restoration efforts of the agriculture industry. The members of the legislature that joined me on the tour were able to experience the need and ecological value of working landscapes from ridgetop to river.

During the trip‚ we also had the opportunity to tour Gray Lodge Wildlife Area in Gridley‚ California‚ a 9‚100-acre wildlife area which is home to more than 300 species of resident and migrant birds and mammals. This multifaceted destination is visited for wildlife viewing‚ hunting‚ fishing‚ education programs‚ and more. As a farmer and native Californian‚ opportunities to learn more about our great state are incredibly valuable. Learn more about the Gray Lodge Wildlife Area here.

Assemblywoman Dahle CRA recognition awardCalifornia Retailers Association Award

This week I attended a reception hosted by the California Retailers’ Board of Directors and member companies to honor legislators who have made a positive impact on California’s retail industry. Policy makers‚ CRA members and others throughout the Capitol community came together to recognize CRA’s 2022 Retail Champions and Friends of California Retail‚ of which I am honored to have been recognized.

California’s retail industry represents 25% of California’s jobs. As a business owner and entrepreneur‚ I entered the legislature with an understanding of what it takes to make it in California’s business climate. Being a business owner in California is not for the faint of heart‚ and I’m grateful to those individuals and families who‚ like us‚ have chosen to push for California to become a more business friendly state.

While there is still plenty of work to be done‚ I am proud of what we have accomplished in the legislature so far. Learn more about the California Retailers Association here.
