Brigitte Davila

Standing for AD 19

In 2019 Brigitte Davila stood from AD 19 for the California Democratic Party Central Committee.

My name is Brigitte Davila and I have been an AD 19 District Delegate since 2016. I have advocated for accessible quality public education at the local, state and national level for my adult life. But, I am also a fierce proponent of affordable housing, single payer healthcare, environmental justice, increasing the electorate, ensuring civil rights, ending the criminalization of youth and protecting the rights of women, LGBTQ and immigrants. Ultimately, the key to achieving these objectives will be through advocating for fair campaign financing reform in our state. I would be honored to have your vote to push this agenda forward in the California Democratic Party.

As a first generation Latina student, I benefited from access to UC Berkeley for both my undergraduate degree and graduate degree. I have now taught Government and Policy classes for nearly 25 years in the College of Ethnic Studies at San Francisco State University and I am a proud member of my faculty union: The California Faculty Association. I am also a former higher education representative to the California Teacher’s Association. I know firsthand that access to a quality education can change lives and I want to make sure that our Democratic Party reflects that value.

I currently serve as President of the Board of Trustees for City College of San Francisco. I worked hard on ensuring that City College remains accredited, that FREE CITY became a reality and that our City College keeps moving forward to provide a free quality education for every resident.

I hold a leadership position in the S.F. District 11 Democratic Club and I am a proud member of the S.F. Latino Democratic Club and the Harvey Milk Democratic Club. I am an alumna of EMERGE CA, an organization that provides women the skill set to run for office. I take my advocacy roles very seriously and it is my goal to support both democratic and Democratic principles for all.[1]
