Sacramento Bee's Capitol Alert

Nossaman Senior Policy Advisor Jennifer Capitolo was mentioned in the Sacramento Bee's Capitol Alert blog post "Nancy Pelosi, Doris Matsui talk up Dems' agenda in Sacramento" regarding Pelosi's recent visit to Sacramento as part of a nationwide tour to promote her agenda to raise the national minimum wage, support the expansion of subsidized preschool and increase the availability of paid medical leave for workers. 

The event included Sacramento women who shared their stories about the difficulty of finding affordable, high-quality child care that would allow them to work or run a business.  Responding to a question from Ms. Capitolo, Pelosi encouraged women in the audience to consider careers in public service and mentioned that women may shy away from politics because of the emphasis on fundraising.
