ADA SoCal Endorses Angelica Deuñas for Congress CA-29

Like so many other working-class women, I’m so proud to be the first person in my family to achieve higher education. Of course, that pride and joy was unmatched by my parents and extended family, and it will always be one of those times I hold dear to my heart.

I  know, first-hand, the priorities of the District, and empathize with the needs of America’s working families everywhere. Our government will not work for us until voters elect members of America’s working class to Congress.

We need people that, not only look and talk like us, but people who will not turn their backs on their own communities for profit and big corporate checks. As a member of Congress, I will put #PeopleFirst and fight for policies that work for our communities to deliver results that bring tangible improvements to the lives of her San Fernando Valley constituents.

ADA SoCal Endorses Ted Lieu for Congress, 33nd District

Ted is the author of first-of-its-kind legislation to ban the fraudulent practice of so-called “gay conversation therapy,” as well as a bill to improve our criminal justice system by eliminating the injustice of money bail. The very first bill Ted introduced when he got to Washington was legislation to address climate change modeled on California’s landmark Global Warming Solutions Act, which he coauthored when he served in the State Legislature. Ted also led the call for investigations into Exxon Mobil’s decades-long campaign of misinformation about climate science.

Ted’s numerous accomplishments have not gone unnoticed.  He was honored by the Daily Dot as an “Internet Freedom Hero” for his work on behalf of Internet privacy.  Leading environmental news and advocacy organization, The Grist, named him one of their “Top 50 Influencers” for 2016.  The Hill included Ted as one of its “10 rising stars in the energy and environment world.”  The Washington Post and LA Times have published profiles on Ted's resistance to our current President.  Ted has also been featured on CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, Democracy Now, the Chelsea Handler Show, Comedy Central, and Real Time With Bill Maher.

ADA SoCal Endorses David Kim for Congress for District  34

Our district is the 10th poorest in the nation. We deserve more from our elected officials.

We are living in a historic crisis that has tested our wellbeing from every angle: our health, finances, bad credit payday loans and societal bonds. Healing will require bold solutions, which cannot happen if we re-elect a representative who takes 98.8% of his money from big donors and corporate PACs.

Our grassroots campaign will meet this moment with the historic policies it calls for. Through Universal Basic Income, Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, Homes Guarantee, and comprehensive police, immigration, and foreign policy reform, we will push our government’s focus back to putting Community First.

ADA SoCal Endorses Derek Marshall for Congress

I'm an organizer and a community activist, and I'm running to fight for justice, equality, and progress.I grew up valuing community service, helped found a global research initiative with the UN, and gained insights into effective social programs while working internationally. After seeing the contrast between European social safety nets and American austerity economics, I felt compelled to return to the U.S. and fight for living wages, LGBTQ+ rights, universal healthcare, and more.

I've worked with Ground Game LA, was a part of successful Democratic campaigns, and played a role in Senator Bernie Sanders' Presidential campaign in 2020. Now, I'm bringing my experiences, skills, and passion to my run for Congress, focusing on progressive issues like Medicare for All and a Green New Deal.

ADA SoCal Endorses Laura Friedman for Congress CA-30

Jay Chen is a member of the U.S. Navy Reserves. Use of his military rank, job titles, and photographs in uniform does not imply endorsement by the Department of Defense or Department of the Navy.

Every American deserves quality affordable and accessible health care with lower out-of-pocket expenses and premiums. By expanding and investing in healthcare coverage we can improve it instead of dismantling it, and protect Americans with pre-existing conditions. No family should ever have to make the choice between paying an emergency medical bill or putting food on the table. In Congress ensuring that every American has quality affordable coverage will be my top priority.

Jay knows that even small price increases of everyday goods can be difficult for families’ budgets and is committed to lowering costs for working Americans.

The United States must work to reduce prices while rebuilding our country and creating millions of good-paying jobs in the process.

ADA SoCal Endorses Mark Takano for Congress District 39

In August 2022, the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) was signed into law, making it the single largest investment for clean energy and combatting climate change in American history.  The IRA aims to cut carbon emissions up to 40 percent by 2030 through accelerating a clean energy transition that will lower energy costs for Americans. One major way this legislation is encouraging a clean energy transition are tax credits and rebates to help families across the country electrify their homes and vehicles. Additionally, the IRA includes billions of dollars to reduce air pollution from the transportation sector, a major pollutant in our community. I was proud to vote yes when this legislation passed the House of Representatives.

Climate change is one of the most serious threats we face as a global community. Greenhouse gas emissions have grown significantly since the Industrial Revolution, leading to an unprecedented rise in average global temperatures. From changes in weather patterns, to an unprecedented increase in droughts, floods, and superstorms, we have seen the effects of climate change firsthand. We must do more to combat the effects of climate change.
