Vote for the Future of the California Democratic Party

I hope you’re taking some time for yourself during this holiday week — to reflect, recharge, and refocus. I know we’re all ready to say goodbye and good riddance to the longest year of our lifetimes, and we’re eager to usher in a brand new year.

Looking ahead to 2021, there is an incredible amount of work we’ll need to do. COVID-19 has exposed a bright light on deep inequities within our society. We need to ensure healthcare for all, a roof over everyone’s head, real strategies to combat climate change, progressive criminal justice reform, educational and economic opportunities for everyone, a social safety net that protects all of us, and more. 

To accomplish this, we need to incorporate these aspirations into the agenda of the California Democratic Party. In a few short weeks, the upcoming Assembly Delegate elections will determine the future of our state’s Democratic Party.

Endorsed Candidates: Vote For the Rise Together Slate

I’m proud to endorse the Rise Together slate — a diverse group of 14 progressive candidates from across San Francisco’s Assembly District 17 who will fight for our values within the Democratic Party. 

I endorsed the Rise Together slate because these candidates are amazing activists and organizers with lived experiences that should be represented in the California Democratic Party. They are advocates for immigrants, housing, transit, parents, students, small businesses and the environment. They are working people, including a janitor, a home caregiver, a sprinkler fitter, and public sector employees. They represent the diverse mix of people that makes San Francisco so vibrant. And they are committed to a political agenda that lifts us all up into the future.

If you haven’t already, please request your mail-in ballot now. Learn more about the Rise Together slate of candidates at, and I hope you will vote for them. 

Thanks for taking part in our Democratic process – and Happy New Year!
