- I have been a member of the Progressive Caucus since 2005, and an officer for 6 years. I served as a Bernie delegate to the 2016 Convention. I have experience and a comprehensive background in progressive politics and organizing. I am an advocate for homeless and low-income communities, and a fighter for progressive issues such as opposing fracking and the TPP, opposing DAPL, promoting single payer healthcare, ending income inequality, advocating for animal welfare, and fighting for the rights of the LGBTQIA community. I co-directed a documentary called Back from Iraq, organized rallies, forums, and protests on most of the issues subscribed to by the Progressive Caucus, trained new delegates, helped get progressives elected at all levels and have been successful in passing many resolutions and platform language within the California Democratic Party.

He is raising money from people who have given money to Tom DeLay and Bush-Cheney and his legislative district covers 60+% of Congresswoman Woolsey's district. Congresswoman Woolsey is a "champion of equal rights, civil liberties, protecting the environment and fighting for single payer healthcare.
