  • 1. Public Safety: We need to engage and invest in our youth, expand community policing and empower neighborhood organizations. A CD9 resident on the Police Commission will be a key factor.
  • Housing & Homelessness: Protect existing affordable housing covenants and facilitate first-time home purchases. We must decriminalize homelessness and take a comprehensive approach that includes housing, mental health and general health needs.
  • Economic Development: Advocate and negotiate for careers and pathways in emerging sectors like Technology, Health, Social Services, Construction, and Entertainment. A partnership with leading companies and educational institutions is key,

Adriana Cabrera is 24 years old running to break barriers that prevent young working class women from positions of leadership. She is running to transform our community. Adriana was born and raised in South Central Los Angeles. Daughter of two immigrants, she is the first out of her family of seven to graduate from high school and college. 

 

For many years Adriana has had the opportunity to work with South Central community members, local government agencies, and community-based organizations to raise awareness and find solutions to the problems our communities face. At the age of 20, she was appointed to serve as the Education Representative for the Central Alameda Neighborhood Council. In this capacity, she collaborated with local organizations to plan and organize workshops such as; CSU and UC College Application, Cash for College, Undocumented Driver’s License AB 60 and Emergency Preparedness

 

Adriana also joined the grassroots people-powered organization Union Del Barrio. There, she organized for the legalization of street vending, minimum wage, ethnic studies at LAUSD, the exploitation of workers, to stop police brutality and other forms of violence our communities face. She founded Empowering Youth in South Central, a grassroots organization that has helped more than 900 students from CD 9 with their college, financial aid, and scholarship applications.

Join us as we move towards building a better future; a future that places our communities’ interest and well-being over corporate profits and special interests.
