It’s 2019 and I’m running for Assembly District Delegate for the CA Democratic Party, District 51!
What is an Assembly District Delegate?
The Assembly District Election Meeting delegates are one-third of the governing body of the California Democratic Party. These delegates vote and conduct business, on behalf of the community they represent, at the yearly State Conventions, including the elections of CDP Officers, the election of up to 25 State Party Regional Directors, California Democratic Party legislative endorsements, ballot propositions, CDP Resolutions and the California Democratic Party Platform.
AD Delegates are elected by voters (to participate in the ADEM you MUST be a registered Democrat in that Assembly District. You can register on January 26th, at the Assembly District Election Meeting at East LA Rising).
There are 14 Assembly District Delegates, per district, elected by voters every two years. There are 80 Assembly Districts in California.
Why am I running?
Since 1995 I've mostly been a registered Green Party voter, because I've felt that that was the party that aligned closest to the issues I think need prioritizing. But at this very moment in time we’re witnessing a cultural transformation within this Democratic Party, to one that’s more reflective of the values that are at the center of every major city in the United States, and in every home across the areas of the country that have had to tolerate racism, classism, xenophobia, and bigotry for far too-long. We’re witnessing a revolution led by womxn of color, by people who transcend gender binaries and who transcend identity constructs, by politically engaged refugees, by indigenous leaders, and by communities of diverse faiths. Now more than ever is when the Democratic Party needs to hear our voices so that this growing number of progressive voters do not participate in this system in vein. I’m running for my parents, my grandparents, my neighbors, my child(ren), and for yours.
