I have a voice and I'm going to use it. For Real Issues. For Real People.

As CEO/Visionary for a start-up LGBT Senior Community, and Chief Strategy Officer for the largest free-standing women's medical and mental health center in the USA, I gained the experience and skills needed to make positive change in the face of great challenge. As an educator, coaching and strategy consultant for SilverSenior Living, I help others identify their goals and how to attain them.

In this chaotic environment, I will use my voice to focus on what is happening to us, and what could happen for us.   

Together we can:

¨ Build more schools, not prisons. 

¨ End the for-profit prison industry in California.

¨ Ensure that all Californians have healthcare. 

¨ Advocate and care for all of our vulnerable communities. 

¨ Create sustainable cities and a sustainable state. 

¨ Generate new jobs, by education and training.

Inspired by those who are courageously resisting, I am stepping out,
and stepping up to do the work it takes to rebuild The Dream of Democracy.

So we can have a system that works. For all of us. 

Joy Silver. Relentlessly progressive. Joyously persistent.

She is the "real deal.”
