My Top 3 Priorities

  • Protecting Our Environment
  • Healthcare for All
  • Workers Rights



Profession:Workers Rights Lawyer
East Bay Municipal Utilities District Board Member - Ward 4, I am currently serving in my twelfth year as an elected Director on the East Bay Municipal Utility District Board of Dir — Elected position (2006–current)


In the Assembly I will prioritize workers rights, universal health care, protecting the environment, and affordable housing for our community. As a workers rights attorney I fight wage theft, discrimination, unsafe workplaces, and strive to ensure that workers are treated with respect. That's why I guided negotiations resulting in a $15 minimum wage and paid sick leave for Berkeley workers.


I believe that good laws can bring environmental justice to our community. I’ve worked to pass laws for climate protection, accelerating clean energy, and reducing toxic diesel emissions from the Port of Oakland. Right now, I am leading the efforts to Save Alta Bates and ensure that our community is not impacted by medical red lining.


As a twelve year member of the East Bay Municipal Utility District board, I have experience leading tough fights.

In the foreclosure crisis I took on the big banks to protect vulnerable tenants from eviction. Today, I am working to protect the Mokelumne River for future generations.


As your representative in Sacramento, I will be a strong advocate for climate protection. I will work to pass 100 percent clean energy laws, and lead a coalition to ban offshore oil drilling and fracking.  I am ready to take on special interests so that we can address rising housing costs, increase affordable housing, and protect long term residents from displacement.



My track record shows that I’m ready to lead.  Will you elect a true progressive to serve you in Sacramento? Learn more at
