The Nation of California, April 21, 2017 - The California Freedom Coalition (CFC) is proud to announce the arrival of California's very highly regarded peace and social justice activist, Cindy Sheehan, to its Board of Directors, effective immediately. Cindy will take part in the creation of California Freedom Coalition’s Education Fund (a 501c3 non-profit).
Famous worldwide for her anti-war efforts—especially her historic 2005 encampment at President George W. Bush’s compound outside Crawford, Texas—Cindy is also deeply committed to the issues of affordable health care, same-sex marriage, renewable energy and improving children's education.
In addition to working tirelessly to improve the lives of all Californians, Cindy has published a memoir, Peace Mom: A Mother's Journey Through Heartache to Activism, in 2006. In the years since, the lifelong Californian has run for US Congress in 2008 and was the vice-presidential nominee of the Peace and Freedom Party in 2012 and their candidate for California Governor in 2014.
Cindy has continued to host a podcast/radio show “Cindy Sheehan's Soapbox” for 9 years and is the host of “The People Speak” on BBSRadio.com.
Now the proud grandmother of five sixth-generation Californians, Sheehan dedicates her work to them and all of the children of the world.
We are looking forward to working with Cindy on the mutual platform for the same fundamental principles: "Peace, Economic Equality and Environmental Sustainability", in the campaign for an Independent California. Welcome to the CFC, Cindy!
About California Freedom Coalition
The California Freedom Coalition is a non profit organization formed under CA statute 23701d (IRS 501c3) to educate, assist and organize California residents through peaceful means in order to ensure we have a place to live that reflects our values. The CFC also has formed a 23701f (IRS 501c4) to be more active in lobbying and signature gathering.
We believe successful nations prioritize diplomacy before destruction, peaceful coexistence before unwanted interference. Currently with 30,000 members and followers, CFC is one of the largest groups supporting California Independence.
We are promoting nonviolent actions to establish the Nation of California using legal and constitutional means to do so. We advocate for peaceful secession from the United States.
Polls indicated that one out of three Californians support independence and 47% were not opposed to the idea of California becoming an independent nation.
