My Top 3 Priorities

  • Endorse candidates that will fight for socioeconomic justice, equality, and progressive values. Hold our elected officials accountable.
  • Advocate on behalf of older adults, veterans, workers rights, and environmental policies.
  • Registering folks to vote does no good if they don't actually vote. One of my goals is to engage voters in between election cycles as well as encourage them to participate in the Democratic Party.

Organizing in CA50 - Campa Najjar — February 6, 2020 California Democratic Party

Last cycle I ran a field for a campaign that started off in a historically ignored district with no resources and by the end of it we had volunteer organizers running 8 satellite locations on top of our 3 offices, which allowed us to flip one of the most conservative strongholds in SoCal! (Escondido). Here's a quick video I helped narrate to give you an idea of what our field program was like, and how I operate.
