Template:TOCnestleft Marguerite Renner was a founding member of the Democratic Club of Pasadena Foothills. She was secretary and president of the club, and am a member of several democratic clubs in the SGV. I worked for all the Democratic candidates for President since 1968 and for Bernie Sanders in 2016 and 2020. I am a founding member of DSA, was a union officer of AFT Local 3414.

I hold a doctorate in history and taught at Stevens College, the UT El Paso, the U of Utah, and was a full professor at Glendale Community College, where I worked for 28 years and with students who could not afford to go to a four year school, or did not know how to apply to those schools. There I taught a course entitled "Rebellious Women in Modern America" and engaged students in the exploration of social movements. Revolutions are not just a single event. They demand setting goals, framing plans and campaigning for change-which all takes years.[1]

Infiltrating the Dems

Help DSA-LA Take Over ADEMS!

Every two years, California Democrats elect delegates from across the state, who then convene along with appointed party officials at the party’s Assembly District Election Meeting (ADEMS). ADEMS determines what the party stands for, making this a significant opportunity for socialists to push the California Democratic Party to the left and away from the interests of union busters, the landlord lobby, fossil fuel polluters, the corporate hospital and pharmaceutical lobby, the prison industrial complex, the corporate donor class, and others that stand against our values.

Our members are running for ADEMS delegate seats so that we’re in the room when the Democratic Party sets its agenda and makes decisions on endorsing candidates for public office. We’re fighting for issues that matter to the working class in California, like Medicare for All, Green New Deal, and Defunding the Police.

The DSA members listed below (in alphabetical order by first name) are running for ADEMS delegate seats on slates across LA County and have pledged to fight for our democratically-decided socialist values.

Assembly District 41 - Elizabeth Trejo, Ellen Dalbey Finkelpearl, John Doyle, Jordan Vannini, Joshua Ulises Marmol, Marguerite Renner, Mindy Pfeiffer, Patricia Hernandez, Robert M. Nelson, Ryan Bell, Savanna Salter, Stephanie Schoen, Steven Gibson, Susan Castagnetto.
