ADA SoCal Endorses Pilar Schaivo  for State Assembly District 40

Pilar is the only candidate endorsed by the Democratic Party, nurses, teachers, Planned Parenthood and Sierra Club. She will make sure big corporations and billionaires pay their fair share so we can cut taxes for small businesses, seniors, veterans, and regular people like you and me. Pilar is an independent voice who will stand up to corporations and those in power, even if they’re in her own party.

For more than 20 years, Pilar Schiavo has been an independent voice, delivering good jobs, affordable housing, solutions to homelessness and health care.

Pilar helped provide healthcare - including reproductive healthcare - to more than one million people. She also co-founded an organization that has delivered more than 40,000 meals to people in need, helped secure housing for veterans experiencing homelessness, and has increased resources to keep our communities safe.

ADA SoCal Endorses Genesis Coronado
for State Assembly District 52

“I’m running because, for far too long, my community’s voice has been underrepresented and ignored.

ADA SoCal Endorses Baba Akili 
for State Assembly.

Born in the segregated South, Akili grew up in a community with high unemployment, underfunded schools, and crime. As a frustrated teenager, Akili began getting into trouble, which resulted in a brief stint in jail at the age of 19. Determined to turn his life around and inspired by a teacher who saw great potential in him, a young Greg Terry became involved in the Civil Rights and social justice movement. His last name was changed to Akili (Swahili for intelligent), and from that point, he has committed his life to fighting for a fair and just society. Greg Akili (preferred to be called Akili) has over 50 years of experience as a laborer, community organizer, and political leader. He is among the few people of color to co-found a labor union – the United Domestic Workers (AFSCME 3090). Akili has dedicated his life to labor, social and racial justice. Akili has three basic beliefs:


  1. People make a difference if you go to them and seek to get them involved.
  2. The essence of democracy is inclusion and participation.
  3. We live in the richest country in the world – we can have a just, fair, and equitable society.
