We live on coasts and forests, deserts and mountains. In cities and suburbs.
We are farmers and teachers. Scientists and schoolkids.
We come from Germany, Mexico, Vietnam, Kenya and beyond.
We are Californians.
We believe in the potential of every child in our state. Every single one.
We know that immigrants make us stronger, not weaker.
We believe in the power of art to inspire.
And the power of nature to awe.
We believe free speech connects us, not divides us.
We have become what we are by welcoming new people and new ideas.
This will never change.
We are Californians. Wir sind Kalifornier. Somos Californianos.
Chúng tôi là cư dân California.
Sisi ni Californians.
And never prouder to say so.
