My Top 3 Priorities

  • Address the economic disparities that exist in our communities and increase affordable housing opportunities as a strategy.
  • To address the homelessness crisis that exists in San Francisco, regionally and across the state.
  • Register as many Democrats as possible in order to organize and get Donald trump out of office.

Experience

Biography

I have been fighting for equity and so I’m justice my entire life and have worked hard to make changes that we focus on as Democrats. I am currently a member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors (elected November 2018) where I have fought to increase affordable housing, prevent homelessness, provide economic viability in disenfranchised communities, disrupt the youth to prison pipeline, provide oversight in sheriff investigations, protect our immigrants and build an entire metal health support network.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I am serving on and running for the DCCC as a part of the Social Justice Democrat’s Slate “Leading the Blue Wave” because we have to do everything we can to make sure we defeat Donald Trump and promote social justice and equity as a party. I am running for the DCCC because I want to work to ensure that democratic policies and strategies are executed locally, at the state level and across the country. I want to work to register more voters and assist people in participating in the political process so they can change things in their communities and I want to make sure that we have representation that is bold, courageous and not afraid to tackle challenges to make big changes.
