Since 2010, with a background in open source software development, consensus-based decision-making and cooperative business operation, I have volunteered and contracted technology services to dozens of grassroots progressive projects including local progressive candidates, nonprofits, and community groups and initiatives. I was a founding volunteer-turned-Associate Director of Partnership for the Advancement of New Americans (PANA) from 2014-2017. I was elected and served as treasurer of San Diego Refugee Forum from 2016-2018, and am a member of Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) San Diego ChapterJewish Voice for Peace San DiegoTech Worker Coalition (TWC) San Diego Chapter, and was elected and am currently serving as Secretary for the San Diego County Democratic Party.

Please get in touch with any questions. I hope to earn your vote!

Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de The League of Women Voters San Diego (LWVSD) and the League of Women Voters of North County San Diego (LWVNCSD) (3)

If elected, how much time and energy will you be able to devote to this volunteer position over the next four years, given your other personal and professional obligations?
Respuesta de Oren Robinson:

Keeping involved in elections, policy change, and the local Democratic Party are all part of my daily work that I am very much committed to. I do intend to utilize the "alternate" vote sharing transparently in order to allow activists and other community members to participate.

What is the most significant challenge facing this party in the next decade, and if you are elected, how will you help the party prepare to meet it?
Respuesta de Oren Robinson:

We need to open up the party. In my experience as a part of several issue based "chartered club and coalitions" as well as in my time serving as secretary, keeping minutes at all Central Committee and Executive Board meetings, I have witnessed that the local party has developed an overall culture of exclusion and disconnect from most San Diegans. If the local party is to be a people's party, we need to make it easy for working class families, parents, youth, non-English-speaking people, people with disabilities, TLGBQIA+ community members, and to responsibly include trans-border and undocumented issues into our policies, procedures and platforms.

What public figures, past and present, do you believe have given the most postive examples of what this party stands for? Please explain your reasons for thinking so.
Respuesta de Oren Robinson:

If we're talking elected Democrats, I think that representatives such as AOC, Ilhan Omar and Bernie Sanders have shown true bravery and principle in their legislative service, being willing to take risks to tell the truth and confront power. As for Democrats past, I think that Ella Baker provides a stellar example of someone who put in the work of relationship-building and community resilience, and someone who took part in the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party at a time when the "Democratic Party" establishment wasn't living up to it's supposed values.

Filosofía política

I believe that a rising tide lifts all boats.

As a San Diego resident in these times, I believe we have a duty to learn and consider our histories as we work together to ensure rights and equitable opportunities for all.

Since the first violent invasions of Kumeyaay Land in 1769 through today, greedy wealthy people and institutions have hoarded money and power in San Diego by dividing working class people, and disproportionately harming Black, Indigenous, People of Color, and TLGBQ+ communities. But histories like the Lemon Grove Incident, the formation of Chicano Park and the numerous large-scale mobilizations for BlackIntersectionalImmigrant and Refugee human rights and liberation shows that we in the San Diego-Tijuana region are all in this together. While we face urgent challenges, when we fight for each other we all win.
