The Eyes of the World Today, we honor the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy, France. On June 6, 1944, more than 150,000 troops headed across the English Channel to seize a fragile beachhead from which the Allies could drive Hitler’s armies back into Germany.

Still Strong, Still Committed, Still City College
City College is an indispensable part of San Francisco – one of our most important ladders of opportunity. The education CCSF provides has enabled thousands of San Franciscans young and old to invest in themselves and build a better future for themselves and their families.

The Engine of Our Economy
As we celebrate National Small Business Week, we must recommit ourselves to reigniting the American dream by rebuilding the pillars of America that have made our economy strong: small businesses, entrepreneurs, and an all-inclusive and thriving middle class. 

May 9, 2014 Pelosi Update
This Mother’s Day, let us honor the fabulous women in our lives by promoting policies that help women achieve the economic success they so rightfully deserve and our country needs. Because, while cards are nice, paid family and medical leave strengthens families.
May 2, 2014 Pelosi Update
Nearly 16 months into the 113th Congress, House Republicans have next to nothing to show for their time in the majority. They have failed to address comprehensive immigration reform, neglected to pass a single bill to create jobs, and refused to increase the minimum wage or extend emergency unemployment insurance - leaving over 2.6 million Americans out in the cold - with thousands joining their ranks each day.
Apr 25, 2014 Pelosi Update
During the District work week, I was honored to attend several events that demonstrate the values and diversity of our City. One such event was the foot-washing ceremony with immigrant families at the St. John Evangelist Episcopal Church on Holy Thursday.

This holy week, as millions celebrate Passover and Easter with friends, family, and loved ones, we can reflect as a nation on the power we draw from our neighbors and our fellow Americans. We have witnessed evil, and we have seen Americans stand united in the face of adversity.
Apr 11, 2014 Pelosi Update
On this week’s Equal Pay Day we honored the ingenuity and hard work of every American woman, and recognized how much more women must do to ensure they earn what they deserve. Every year, women have to work more than 3 extra months in order to take home the same amount a man earned last year. However, once again, Senate Republicans this week voted to reject the core American value of equality.

Mar 14, 2014 Pelosi Update
The American people want action. Time and again since emergency unemployment insurance (UI) expired on December 28, Speaker Boehner has refused to bring up a vote on these benefits, cutting off this critical assistance to more than 2 million Americans – including almost 340,000 Californians.

Time to Give America a Raise 
The American people want and deserve an economy where a hard day’s work earns a decent day’s pay, and everyone has the opportunity to build a brighter future for themselves and their families. Raising the minimum wage is a critical part of delivering on an economy that works for everyone. 

Feb 21, 2014 Pelosi Update
Increasing the minimum wage to $10.10 would lift nearly a million Americans out of poverty, lift the wages for 25 million people, close the opportunity gap, and offer a fair shot to those struggling most to make ends meet.

Today, as people across the country treat their loved ones to flowers and sweets, House Democrats and Americans everywhere are engaged in an online conversation – What Women Need for Valentine’s Day – to highlight the policies women need to succeed in America.
Feb 7, 2014 Pelosi Update
Citizens United, the disastrous Supreme Court decision four years ago that allowed money to flow unchecked into politics, shook the very foundation of our democracy: that in the United States of America, it is the voices of the people that determine the outcome of our elections, not the bank accounts of the privileged few. We must work to change this.
Jan 31, 2014 Pelosi Update
Five years ago, our country took a key step forward on the path to equality in the workplace as President Obama made the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act the first bill he signed into law. As we mark this achievement and celebrate our progress, we know there is more work to do in order to address the economic challenges facing women today.
Jan 25, 2014 Pelosi Update
Our faith in America’s collective capacity to innovate, to succeed, and to thrive has been the bedrock of the extraordinary entrepreneurial spirit that defines San Francisco. But in building the better businesses of tomorrow, the success of American entrepreneurs must not only reflect our dedication to innovation and competitiveness, but also our commitment to community.
Jan 17, 2014 Pelosi Update
As I travel through California and across the nation, what never ceases to impress is the work ethic of Americans everywhere. No one works harder than America’s workers. While our country’s productivity has soared, their paychecks haven’t kept pace.
