We have a chance at ending this now, with CA34.
Last November 2020, our 100% people-powered grassroots campaign won 47.1 of the total votes cast in the General Election for CA34’s congressional seat, thereby winning 96,554 votes and only losing to the corporate incumbent by 12,000~ votes. Thanks to our historic movement and campaign, the incumbent has now started to shift more to the “progressive wing” by supporting a federal eviction moratorium and a child tax credit, but nothing more. This is not the type of representation that the people of CA34 need in desperate times like the now, where the conditions here, LA and the U.S. have only worsened over the past decade under their watch.
Our district is one of the poorest congressional districts in the country, and it’s time that we deserve, demand and fight for more.
As an immigration attorney and a juvenile dependency attorney for parents, David has defended hundreds of parents and undocumented families in immigration court, and children’s welfare court, and has represented the most vulnerable parents and families of Los Angeles County. These experiences have shown him that these parents and families’ conditions and those of many in our own communities, directly reflect the government’s failure to prioritize and ensure that everyone has the right to live: to housing, to healthcare, to a sustainable job, to money and to resources. No one should be left out as not one soul is less than another. We have so much more to go, be it respecting and valuing minorities, saving our environment and neighborhoods from climate change and its harsh effects, holding law enforcement accountable, rebudgeting our money and where we spend it as a country, ending poverty and more.
We live in one of the world’s wealthiest nations. If it’s possible anywhere to prioritize human values in a real and meaningful way, it’s here. This can be the America we’re told about, where equal access and opportunity stretches past the limits of our dreams. Where life is valued, and not only do we say all life is equal, but we take action that demonstrates it. Where life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness is truly reflected as a right.
Our country has been an example for the world before. Let’s do it again.
Let’s build a floor to stand on. Let’s put our communities first. Let’s put us first, together.
