Candidate for San Francisco Democratic Central Countee Comittee 2020

Dear friends and fellow San Franciscans,

I am here to listen and I am ready to serve.

We must come together to address the problems that affect our city and our people and the Democracy of the United States of America.

I am proud of my service in the Democratic Party of San Francisco and the work we are doing together on issues like education, public safety, voter empowerment, housing and homelessness.

Most importantly, I am proud of my work to grow our democratic party by focusing on bringing in underrepresented voices and communities into positions of leadership. Building a stronger, more diverse and more united Democratic Party for all!

This is why I am asking for your support.

Can I count on you? YES!

Searving 7 years as an Associate Member of our San Francisco Democratic Party (DCCC – Democratic Central Countee Committee), a former Delegate of our California State Democratic Committee, Founder and President San Francisco Black Community Matters – A Chartered San Francisco Democratic Club, founder and Executive Director of San Francisco Impact Partners – an organization focused on issues concerning poverty and homelessness.   

Election Day March 3rd. 2020

I am running to represent San Franciscans as a member of the DCCC – 17th Assembly District. As a native of San Francisco, I live, work, and have engaged in grassroots progressive activism to address some of our biggest problems. Focusing on and addressing the issues for everyone – from those of us living on our streets to those of us safe and secure in our housing.

I’ve been focused on coming into every community to talk about our efforts to improve public safety, talking about ways to secure out communities through our cultural districts, talking about ways to address poverty and homeless and talking about ways to grow and diversify our democratic party to include the voice and experience of those who are often denied a seat at the table.

Let’s work together. Join our squad Democratic Party Survey

For years, I have worked to address our concerns around voter outreach in undeserved communities, education on anti-racism, diversity, equity, and inclusion.  I have worked to help prepare the next generation for leadership while fighting against Trump and the GOP.

Text Squad to 66599 for our goals.

Together, I have fought with you for social justice and progress in matters of human rights, civil rights, open government, public health and safety, homeless services, worker rights and workforce development, community heritage, and preservation.

Like you, I’m fighting for a better future, for my family, friends, the community and for the health of our human society. 

I believe our leadership and goals must include the experience and support the remediation of those of us who have faced real-life hardships and real-life disparities which we know impact so many of us and those of our most vulnerable communities, denying us a seat at the table.  

We know that it is time to bring the voice and experience of all people, our neighbors, into our Democratic Party. Ensure our seat at the table and a place in our platform for those who know hardship, disparities, poverty, and homelessness. With your support, I intend to help us do that.
