I don't believe in any form of unjustified extremism. But when a man is exercising extremism — a human being is exercising extremism — in defense of liberty for human beings it is no vice, and when one is moderate in the pursuit of justice for human beings I say he is a sinner. Malik El Shabazz
If anything, the pandemic has exacerbated the already treacherous conditions which many of our fellow citizens live under on a daily basis. Poverty relief, the living up to our national creed for BIPOC in America, and the ending of the pandemic should be the priorities of the Democratic Party. As a delegate I will continue to advocate for a platform that includes establishing affirmative action, reparations, environmental justice, and to a one-state solution for the people of Palestine and Israel. We need to work with the California State legislature to make single-payer healthcare, college for all, broadband and a device for all and, fully funded public schools a reality for Californians.
Nationally, we need to end family separation and unite all immigrant children with their families. A path to citizenship for all our undocumented residents is the better way forward. We need an equal pay amendment in the U.S Constitution. We need to be a party that advocates for the rights of the transgender community.
We need a California Democratic Party (CDP) that reflects the rich diversity of the state. A Black woman should be appointed to fill the U.S Senate seat of Vice President Harris. The CDP needs a scorecard to evaluate whether an incumbent has furthered the platform of the California Democratic Party.
