This past legislative season, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed AB 2542 (The Racial Justice Act) into law, a huge victory for confronting racism in California courts. As we move into the next phase of implementation, we want to ensure our broader communities understand this new law, what it does and doesn't do, and how it can be used to fight racial discrimination in criminal court cases. Sign up for our training!

This year, in response to a nationwide personnel shortage, hundreds of thousands of people - including young, Black, brown, and bilingual people - answered the call to volunteer at the polls. Those volunteer poll workers, along with local election workers and state election officials from both sides of the aisle, ensured that a record number of citizens could safely and securely cast their ballots during a pandemic. They helped us vote, they counted our ballots, they followed checks and balances to ensure the accuracy of vote tallies, and they certified the results. THANK YOU #ElectionHeroes for your service, hard work, and sacrifice to ensure the health of our democracy in 2020.

If someone asked you to name female scientists from history, how many names come to mind? Unfortunately, it's a rare person, child or adult, who can name more than two or three female scientists — and, even in those instances, the same few names are usually mentioned time and again.

For centuries, women have made important contributions to the sciences, but in many cases, it took far too long for their discoveries to be recognized — if they were acknowledged at all. In our blog post, "Those Who Dared to Discover," we've shared the stories of sixteen historic female scientists who have who have blazed new trails in their disciplines. From determining the size of the universe to unlocking the secrets of the genetic code, these pioneering women have forever changed the way we see our world!

And, to help you dig deeper into their stories, we've also included resources such as books and posters focused on the featured scientists at the end of each profile for readers both young and old.

To read our blog post, "Women Who Dared To Discover: 16 Women Scientists You Should Know," at https://www.amightygirl.com/blog?p=11511

For books about trailblazing female scientists to inspire children of all ages, check out our blog post, "Books to Inspire Science-Loving Mighty Girls," at https://www.amightygirl.com/blog?p=13914

For holiday gift ideas, you can also find toys and science kits to encourage your Mighty Girl's interest in science in our blog post, "The Gift of Curiosity: Top Science Toys and Kits for Mighty Girls" at https://www.amightygirl.com/blog?p=10528
