Standing for AD 17
In 2019 Brad Joseph Chapin stood from AD 17 for the California Democratic Party Central Committee.
- Executive Board: Outreach, Harvey Milk LGBT Democratic Club. I’m running to be a delegate in order to honor those who came before me. From my uncle who died living with HIV, to my chosen queer family who taught me the meaning of unconditional acceptance.
- I’m privileged to live with my mentor, Harry Britt, who served San Francisco after the tragic assassination of Harvey Milk and, later, as an advocate against the inaction of a federal government toward our families dying of HIV & AIDS. I’m proud to serve on the board of the political organization that Harvey, Harry, & others built in order to continue to build coalitions fighting for social, economic, sexual, and racial justice.
- Throughout my career, I’ve focused on the impact of oppression on mental health. I pursued graduate education at the Clinical Psychology PhD Program at University of Massachusetts Boston. In this work, I’ve been privileged to meet President Obama and Vice President Biden after submitting policy ideas promoting better mental health treatment for queer folks living with mental illness.
PLAN: I will fight for a party that responds to the needs of people above corporations, worker’s rights, Medicare-for-all, the acquisition & development of affordable housing, a Green New Deal, & police reform. Housing, healthcare, & a healthy climate must be human rights.
