I'm Ankur Patel, I was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley. I went to school in the San Fernando Valley (CSUN), and for the past 10 years have been an activist in my community to advocate clean air, clean energy and universal healthcare.

I learned in college that our voices were often overlooked by our elected officials because they were too busy listening to big money lobbyist and forgetting ordinary people like myself. 

I learned in my 20's that as a progressive, it was important to go beyond organizing rallies and on the street to get involved in government to help change things.  

So I got involved and in 2015 became a Community Coordinator for the LAUSD board member Schmerelson. 

 I saw how that position allowed me make tangible REAL change for my community when in October 23rd 2015, the largest methane leak in the US  happened in Aliso Canyon.  (Methane is a greenhouse gas 86 times more potent than carbon dioxide over a 20-year period.)

 Students and teachers were getting sick, and for the first month not many government agencies were responding to the scale of the crisis. It was not a quick or easy task, but through our efforts we relocated two schools over the winter break to ensure the safety of the faculty and students. 

That is why I need your help, to continue my mission to make positive changes in my community by getting a seat in the halls of power of Sacramento to be able to help ordinary people, and continue the fight against Big Money.
