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!

All hands on deck - 49 days left till Election

Friends!

We have 49 days left until the election! We already made history advancing as the 1st Green to make it to the General Election here in LA! If elected, we will change the course of politics as we know it! 

Since January, we've spoken to tens of thousands of voters but we need your help reaching out to the remainder. There are 300,000 registered voters in our district so please consider donating to help us send mail, canvassing (if you live in LA), or phonebanking (if you live out of state). People power will win this for the movement.

 

We believe that Healthcare, Housing, Education, and a Clean Green Environment are Human Rights and will fight in Congress to make that happen.

If you believe in revolutionizing our government, you still have time to get involved and help us in the final 7 weeks. You can help from ANYWHERE!


  • Canvassing (knocking on doors if you live in Los Angeles)
  • Phonebanking (from anywhere and even out of state), and/or
  • Reaching out to friends in the district to vote for us (we would need their first and last name to see if they're in the voter file).

Thanks to you we have been able to get campaign voter data, a campaign headquarters, campaign material, and reimbursements for meals and more for our volunteers. We are just shy of $70,000 so please chip in a small amount to help us keep going! 

Donate here!

 

 Also, if you're in Los Angeles, please come to our campaign HQ and pick up yard signs, buttons, bumper stickers, and more. We also have weekly events noted below:

  • We have weekly Sunday campaign socials from 6pm to 9pm where you can hangout in a more informal casual setting and get to know the team with food and drinks! 
  • If you don't like talking to voters, you can help us write postcards to voters instead!

Thank you!
