I’m running on the Progressive Slate! Over the past few years I’ve volunteered on City Council campaigns bringing new leadership to the city of Los Angeles. On Nithya Raman’s city council campaign we used the power of social media to expand our volunteers and encourage followers to engage with their friends about this race. We had 500 people commit to reaching out to friends and family in the district to vote for Nithya simply by reaching out to them via direct messaging. For Hugo Soto-Martinez’s city council campaign I volunteered on the communications team and highlighted the unique stories of our volunteers on social media. It’s essential for us to meet voters where they are, and for so many people that means meeting them on social media!
I support Medicare For All (including universal healthcare here in California), ending corrupt money in politics, a Green New Deal, banning all fossil fuel money from the party, reproductive rights, decreasing the bloated police and military budget, tuition-free public college, expanding our public transit system, fighting for a high speed rail connection across the state, rent control, addressing the homeless crisis by building housing and shelters, and investing in infrastructure.
I promise to vote to endorse Barbara Lee, Ro Khanna, Katie Porter or whomever the best Progressive candidate is who runs to be the next senator for California.
In a state where many races are blue v. blue, it is essential that we endorse the right shade of blue that represents the values of Californians. When I’m not volunteering on political campaigns I’m working my day job casting television shows. In my casting career I’ve had the chance to bring diverse and LGBTQ stories onto screens around the world. In 2020 one of my shows won the GLAAD Media Award for LGBTQ representation. For the past six years I’ve also been a singer with the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles. While we preform in some of the best venues in Southern California, the best work we do is doing school assemblies across the region. For me, representation matters from the small screen to high school educational assemblies to Sacramento. I am on the endorsement committee for the Stonewall Democratic Club and am a member of Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) - Los Angeles.
