I’m excited for my dear friend, Jimmy Gomez, to be representing our community in Congress. He has served us well and we need to ensure that his track record of progressive leadership continues in the Assembly. 

I’m running to represent the 51st Assembly District because I want California to lead the way when it comes to building a stronger economy, providing high-quality education and job training, welcoming immigrants, and ensuring access to affordable and quality health care for all. I will work to ensure that everyone, no matter their background, has the opportunity to succeed.

I'm the son of Filipino immigrants who came to Historic Filipinotown to flee the Marcos regime. I understand the struggle many working people and immigrant families face when trying to make a new life in Los Angeles. Despite growing up in intense poverty, I was able to take advantage of opportunities made possible to me by public education and the entertainment industry.

I'm asking you to join me in this campaign. Together, we will fight for our progressive values.

Equality California endorses Alex De Ocampo

Alex De Ocampo has earned the support of Equality California in his campaign to represent California’s 51st Assembly District. Equality California is the nation’s largest statewide lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender civil rights organization dedicated to creating a fair and just society. He is proud to be one of the four candidates endorsed by them.

“I am honored to have the support of Equality California,” said De Ocampo. “They have done tremendous work to advance and protect the rights of California’s LGBTQ community, and I look forward to working alongside them to continue working towards LGBTQ equality and social justice in our communities.”

"We are fortunate to have a large group of candidates in the District 51 race who support LGBTQ equality and social justice," said EQCA Executive Director Rick Zbur. "However, four candidates stood out from the rest of the field, demonstrating a superior and outstanding understanding of the issues and priorities of the LGBTQ community, as well as a more significant history and record of demonstrated commitment to LGBTQ equality and social justice in their public and community activities."
