ADA SoCal has not endorsed in every single race.  But we would contend that in any race this year that has a Democrat running against a Republican, it would behoove us to vote for the Democrat on November 6th!

Jan Goodman, longtime board member of ADASoCal, says, “The Garden Party, occurring just before the November elections, aims to focus on some of the most vital issues on the ballot:  The bold plan to create a public bank as an alternative to Wells Fargo and other banking predators that crashed our economy (Measure B--City of L.A.), and the struggle to protect Californians from skyrocketing rents and make housing affordable again (Prop 10). These issues have been percolating for a long time, tended by long laboring hands. However, Bernie Sanders planted many progressive seeds and younger activists from his movement have become some of the key people working on some of the hottest issues on the ballot. The warriors in these battles are diverse, inter-generational, highly motivated, and worthy of recognition.”

Doors open at 2pm and program will start at 3pm sharp. Private Santa Monica, California residence - address will be forwarded to those who RSVP.

Donations will support the year round work of ADASoCal, an early endorser of Bernie Sanders.  Thousands of voters depend upon the rankings and endorsements of ADA in Southern California and around the country.  ADASoCal is a multi-issue progressive organization, fighting for peace, social justice, environmental, racial and economic equality.  Americans for Democratic Action, is not affiliated with the Democratic Party.  It was founded more than 70 years ago by a distinguished group of progressive visionaries, including John Kenneth Galbraith, Walter Reuther, and Eleanor Roosevelt, in the wake of the New Deal to push the Democratic Party to the Left.  ADA is at the cutting edge of every important struggle for human rights, world peace, and social and economic justice.

This Midterm Election offers us a chance to start the process of turning things around in this Country.  And here in Southern California, we have an opportunity to flip a number of Republican Congressional seats.  But it isn't enough to elect Democrats if those Democrats are bought and paid for by corporate interests like the Charter Schools, the Petroleum giants and the Insurance and Pharmaceutical companies.  That's why the June 5th Primary is so important.  We have a chance to make sure that if a Democrat goes to the November Run-off, that Democrat will be an actual Progressive who will put the needs of their constituents ahead of those of their donors. 
One of the most important races is for US Senate.  Dianne Feinstein votes with Donald Trump over 30% of the time.  Only Joe Manchin (WV) and Heidi Heitcamp (ND) are Democrats who are more supportive of the Republicans.  If we lived in one of those states, we could be satisfied with Feinstein, but Blue California can do a lot better, which is why I'm urging people to vote for President Pro-Tem of the Senate, Kevin De León.  While Dianne Feinstein is giving speeches urging people to be patient with the President, De León is crafting legislation to protect California from his destructive agenda.
