United Democrats for Progress of Ventura County presents: Inauguration Celebration Zoom Event. Saturday, January 23, 2021 from 3-5PM. Climate Activist Tom Steyer to Headline Virtual Event

Steyer left his successful investing business to give his own money, time, and energy to fighting for progressive
causes. He soon became one of the country’s leading forces in registering more young voters and voters of color, fighting
climate change, working for racial justice, and helping secure better lives for all Americans. From founding voter
mobilization organization NextGen America, to spearheading impeachment with Need to Impeach, Tom has led a number
of people-first, grassroots campaigns that have repeatedly defeated powerful special interests. Tom has mobilized
grassroots efforts to beat big oil to win clean air laws, force big tobacco to pay its share of healthcare costs, and close a
billion-dollar corporate tax loophole to fund public schools. Most recently, Tom was a former Democratic presidential
candidate and in 2020 served as co-chair for Governor Newsom's Business and Jobs Recovery Task Force.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      He cochaired Vice President Biden's Climate Engagement Advisory Council to help mobilize climate voters. He will continue his
work to make sure Americans reap the benefits of climate action in a just and equitable way.

Other speakers include Assembly member Jacqui Irwin, Assembly member Steve Bennett,
Ventura County Supervisor Carmen Ramirez, Santa Barbara Mayor Cathy Murillo, Simi Valley
City Council member Ruth Luevanos, Moorpark City Council member David Pollock, and
