Dear family, friends, and supporters,

2 years ago, we ran in our first election on June 7, 2016 in the Democratic Primary as a "write-in" candidate! We received 1,177 write-in votes! Pretty good for not being on the ballot and campaigning for 2 months.

1 year ago on April 4, 2017, we ran in our second election under the amazing Green Party and ended up placing 7th out of 24 candidates, beating 14 Democrats & ALL other party candidates (including the Republican, Libertarian, & Non-Partisan candidates). We were also 394 votes away from 4th place and spent the least amount of money per vote (meaning we had people power!).

With that being said, today, we have a new Congressman: another neoliberal Democrat who takes corporate money but rationalizes it's "okay" because he was endorsed by progressive groups and because of a simple progressive voting record.

But that's not good enough. People are hungry for real change. People are sick and tired of establishment politics and politicians accepting huge lump sums of money from the people/companies they're "supposedly" going to stand up against in office.

It is not good enough to just vote "right" or do something good every now and then. We need people who are willing to go above and beyond and help build a movement and push for revolutionary change. It's time for a REAL political revolution!

A political revolution where we don't compromise on our values, where we push for better, like cancelling student debt or a guaranteed basic income, and where we destroy the 2-party system, a system that has enslaved the working class and the masses to fill the pockets of the 1% for too long. It's time to give the people something NEW!

With that being said, we are planning on running against Jimmy Gomez, the new Congressional District 34 Congressman in the June 5, 2018 Primary under the Green Party.

We are not running because we want to, but because we have to. We are running because people are dying, literally, for real change, and guess what? The same old same is not working and has not been working. I would encourage anyone else with the right heart and mind to do the same in 2018!

If you know of anyone that would make an amazing Congress person for Los Angeles' Congressional District 34, please let me know ASAP and I would be happy to step aside, but only if that person runs Green.

In the meantime, let's get the ball rolling! Please sign up to volunteer below!
