My name is Dan Hall, and I am running for AD-51 Delegate on the Progressive Slate to fight for a more inclusive and just California.
I am an LGBTQ+ veteran, West Point graduate, and one of the Army’s first openly gay helicopter pilots, serving in Iraq, Kuwait, and South Korea. A sense of duty drove me to join despite “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” which forced me to hide my identity in order to serve our country. After the policy lifted, I advocated for LGBTQ+ health care in the military, pushing for access to HIV-prevention drugs (PrEP), promoting mental health, and supporting transitioning transgender soldiers.
Today I am a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion professional, working to break systems that perpetuate bias and oppression in the workforce. I lead a team responsible for diverse talent promotion across 70,000 workers and manage a flagship program removing hateful, third-party listed products from our platform that perpetuate harm for diverse consumers. I come from previous experience launching electric delivery vans, where I focused deployment on distressed neighborhoods most vulnerable to vehicular pollution.
I serve as the Treasurer of the Santa Monica Democratic Club, am active in the Stonewall Democratic Club, and am a City Council appointee to the Santa Monica Pier Board. In June ‘22, I advocated for strong gun control policy in a speech at Santa Monica’s March for Our Lives, drawing from firsthand knowledge of the danger posed by firearms. In the 2022 election, I canvassed for Santa Monica’s Measure GS which will provide millions of dollars for affordable housing, and for Measure RC which secured a 3% adjustment cap for rent control, protecting our city’s most vulnerable seniors. As a renter myself, I will always fight for tenant’s rights; when councilmembers proposed conservative policies that would have dismantled rent control as we know it, I organized a coalition to fight back against City Hall… and we won!
The California Democratic Party must stand up for those least among us. As a delegate, I will advocate for LGBTQ+ rights, racial justice, veterans issues, and a green economy of the future. I believe in affordable housing, rent control, gun control, strong public schools, and supporting working families.

I would be honored to earn your vote.
