Committees

We don't just want you to join and support ADA SoCal.  We want you to get involved with the work we're doing.  

You don't have to be a board member of ADA SoCal to serve on a committee.  Any member of Americans for Democratic Action can serve.  Through our committees, we're doing some of our most important work.

We also have organizational committees, which allow us to focus our action:

  • The Endorsement Committee works on elections, candidates and ballot measures.

Each Committee will be developing their own page and have something published on this website by the June Board meeting.
