L.A. progressives unite ahead of Democratic Party election
As Californians will soon elect representatives to the California Democratic Party during the biannual Assembly District Elections Meeting, a group of 14 community leaders and activists with shared progressive values have united on a progressive slate to represent State Assembly 51, stretching from Santa Monica to Hollywood.
The results of the ADEM help guide the future of the California Democratic Party. Voters will elect 14 delegates from every assembly district to represent them. Delegates will in turn shape the future of the nation’s most progressive Democratic Party, influencing legislation that will impact the lives of all Californians.
The Progressive Slate for AD51 brings together dedicated activists including Louis Abramson, Steve Dunwoody, Naomi Goldman, Jan Goodman, Eric Greene, Dan Hall, Erick Matos, Cristina L. Navarro, Mike Rose, Angela D. Scott, Alison Rebeca Stern Simard, Barry A. Snell, Isabel Storey, and Caroline M. Torosis.
Slate members are united behind progressive values including Medicare for All, a New Green Deal, environmental justice, ending homelessness and increasing affordable housing, racial justice, worker rights and ending hate and bias.
Voting in the ADEM will take place both by mail and in person. The deadline to sign up for a vote-by-mail-ballot is Dec. 31, and ballots will be mailed in early January. In-person voting will be held on Jan. 8 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at Stoner Park, 1835 Stoner Ave., L.A.
