With the California 2020 primary elections happening today, young people across California are preparing to vote today.
People across the country are working hard to get young people civically engaged, but one local professor is taking it to the next level this Election Day.
The GEO Group, Inc. today filed an appeal with the City of McFarland requesting a new hearing with the City Council after denying plans by the private prison company to convert two of the city’s correctional facilities for use as federal immigration detention centers.
Thousands of people filled the Spectrum Amphitheater in Bakersfield Friday afternoon to attend the “Get out the Early Vote Rally” with presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
After waiting a long four hours of comments from GEO Group, McFarland residents opposing the expansion of GEO cheered Tuesday in celebration when the McFarland Planning Commission voted 2-2, rejecting the motion to allow GEO to turn two prisons into immigrant detention centers.
For the first time, people will be able to respond to the 2020 Census anytime and anywhere from any device, because it will be available online.
