Shay White is an Oklahoma activist.
On March 21st 2018, Green Country Democratic Socialists of America passed a resolution establishing their endorsement process and electoral strategy, and endorsed two further candidates to build on our January endorsement of a candidate in the Democratic gubernatorial primary in 2016.
Our endorsed candidates for the 2018 June primary are as follows:
- Shay White is a social worker within Oklahoma’s public schools running for State House District 77. Due to her direct experience, she fundamentally understands the need for access to quality healthcare, education, housing, and other social services in Oklahoma. She also has no tolerance for injustice in her community, and seeks to make equity a fundamental part of her campaign. Standing to be the first woman or African American to be elected in her district, she embodies the idea that we need to broaden the horizon by electing a diversity of working class people to see change done. Her platform is builds on democratic and socialist principles, and would be positioned with the current organic movement to restore education along progressive lines to make a change at the capitol, in accountability with our local.
