Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Inscribir y hacer que participen electores Demócratas a nivel local y nacional. Debemos recuperar la Casa Blanca.
  • Fomentar una vivienda asequible y acabar con la indigencia de manera compasiva con mis respaldos y la defensoría comunitaria.
  • Terminar con las inequidades raciales que aún son prominentes en los empleos, las viviendas, la educación, el sistema de justicia penal y el sistema de cuidados de la salud.

Biografía

After having the honor of being appointed to Mayor London Breed's seat on the DCCC, and having the privilege of representing the people of San Francisco, and beyond, I decided to run as a candidate so that I can continue to serve the community as your voice. I have long participated in the DCCC as a member of the public, and that will always motivate me to remain authentic, and accountable.

I was born in Chicago, and lived in Baltimore, and Washington, DC, before moving to San Francisco at the age of ten. When my mother moved here with my brother and I, she was a young lesbian, single mom, who moved to San Francisco to live her life in a community that would be more accepting. Our first home was in Noe Valley, something almost unimaginable now for a single mom with today's cost of living. She was an activist, and raised us to fight for civil rights, peace, and social justice, which really shaped how I view the world. I graduated from Opportunity II High. In my senior year, I lost dozens of classmates in the Jonestown tragedy, which was a pivotal life experience, and has never left me. During my teen years we also lived in Bernal Heights, the Mission, and the Lower Haight, before settling in the Fillmore, where my mom and I still live to this day. 

I raised my three children in the Fillmore, as a former long time welfare mom. I always had part time jobs, and finally went from "welfare-to-work" personally, and eventually, started working in social services myself, where I was once a client. My children and I are all SFUSD alum. I earned my Bachelors degree from the University of San Francisco late in life, and now work coordinating employment services for San Francisco youth. 

I have always been active in different movements for social justice. From advocating for peace, to fighting racism, to immigrant rights, to ending the street violence that has claimed so many young lives in our City, to labor. I have been an SEIU member for eighteen years, and am currently a steward, regularly assisting my coworkers. 

On the DCCC, I plan to advocate for these issues, and to support candidates, and legislation that will benefit the most vulnerable among us, and to work hard to win back the White House in 2020.

Filosofía política

I am a life-long Democrat who registered for and voted in the very first election I was eligible to do so. It was 1980 and I voted for Jimmy Carter for President. When he lost, I lived through the death and suffering that happened under the Reagan administration. I have been voting and volunteering for political campaigns ever since. My mother instilled in me a sense of duty to fight for social justice and against racism. Ever since I was a teen, I have been involved with movements to end wars, discrimination, youth violence, and other injustices. I have campaigned for the candidates and legislation that were justice-based and beneficial to people of color, the poor, and disenfranchised. I support immigrant rights and believe in amnesty for all. The current administration is lethal and criminal in its treatment of immigrants and asylum seekers. We need to dismantle the racist systems of government and institutions and promote anti-racist values in society. I support unions and am a long time member of SEIU 1021.

I believe that all people deserve dignified and productive lives. Housing, healthcare, and education are all human rights. I have three grandsons and am determined to fight for a better world for them and their generation, and at this point, for them to have a world-period. On a personal basis, I am vegan for the animal welfare and impact on the planet. I know we need to aggressively work to end the damaging practices and reverse global warming. I categorically reject putting profit over people and we need for the one-percent to take responsibility for the damage they're doing with their "maximum profit" practices. I know we can change the world for the better and if it cuts into their profit, they have the moral obligation to do so. The current system isn't just "failing," it is going to end the planet for all life as we know it and that is not acceptable. This is not some unpredictable natural disaster, but man-made catastrophes that we can prevent.
