Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

“In a state with so much wealth, there is no reason for millions of Californians to be living at or near poverty. It is time we focus on funding people’s needs and ending poverty in California. That is why I am running for State Treasurer,” said Adams. She calls for full rights for all immigrants, including the right to vote and receive all benefits.

Adams is running in 2022 as part of a statewide Left Unity Slate composed of candidates from the Peace and Freedom and Green parties. Her campaign is also endorsed by the Party for Socialism and Liberation, of which she is a member.

The Adams is campaign not funded by corporate donors, real estate developers, or oil lobbyists. We are funded by the people. We run grassroots campaigns built by people power, organizing movements for justice, and fighting to envision a socialist future.
