Dr Martin Luther King JrEven now, a half century after his death, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s contribution to developing a more equal society, one where all Americans have the opportunity to succeed, remains unmatched.

Each year, the Legislature celebrates his vision and victories.  I am proud to be a co-author of Assembly Concurrent Resolution 139 honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

We must make every effort to keep the progress we have made and continue to move forward. 

Today, I encourage you to give back to the community in Dr. King's honor. You can perform community service or stand up for an ideal you believe in, while working to make the world a better place. Fight to improve the lives of others, this is the legacy I believe Dr. King would want in his memory.

In his words, "Everybody can be great, because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love."

As we remember the past, we must endeavor to use those lessons to inform the present and shape the future. I trust that you will do something meaningful to commemorate his legacy. Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!

Here is what I will be doing on Martin Luther King Jr. Day:

Saint John’s Catholic Cathedral - 2814 Mariposa (R Street & Mariposa Street).

Marchers will assemble at 9:00 a.m. and march to Fresno City Hall, 2600 Fresno Street, Fresno where the Commemoration Program will be held.  (march 9:15 a.m. -10:30 a.m.)

Speaker:  Dr. Carole Goldsmith, President of Fresno City College.

Got Diapers?

Sunday, May 14, 2017

Assemblyman Arambula diaper drive event graphicDiapers are expensive – as much as $100 a month per child. Sadly, many parents in our community can’t always afford to buy diapers for their babies. 

That’s why I’m asking for your help. Join me and members of our community for the 2017 Mother’s Day Diaper Drive from May 1 – May 14.   We will be collecting diapers that will be donated to Angels of Grace, a local non-profit that helps foster care children and families in our community.

Diapers will be accepted at the following locations:

  • My Capitol Office: State Capitol, Rm 5155, Sacramento, CA 94249-0031
  • My District Office: 2550 Mariposa Mall, Suite 5031, Fresno, CA 93721
  • Angels of Grace: 1095 N. Van Ness Avenue, Fresno, CA 93728

Babies who can’t get clean diapers are at a greater risk for developing rashes and infections. Daycare facilities - even subsidized programs - won’t take kids who don’t have a full day’s supply of diapers. Not having diapers is a barrier to good health for babies and an economic barrier for parents on a limited income.

It is estimated that one in three families have trouble affording diapers for their babies. In Fresno County, there are more than 6,000 children who are in the foster care system who could benefit from an emergency supply of diapers. This is a crucial need. Every diaper we collect will help children and families right here in our community.

I hope we can count on your donation at one of the above locations because our children deserve the best possible start in life.

For more information on the 2017 Mother’s Day Diaper Drive, please contact my office at (559) 445-5532.
