Victor Frias isa Special Education Teacher with LAUSD and the United Teachers Los Angeles (UTLA) Chapter Chair at my school site. I am also a member of Los Angeles Democratic Socialists of America . I participated in the LAUSD/UTLA strike in January 2019 where I advocated for class size reduction, guaranteed nurse & librarian at every school and less standardized testing. I am a community organizer fighting for educational and environmental justice. Specifically, we are working to address the lack of charter school accountability and oversight and the toxins/pollutants in the land that have long plagued Southeast LA.[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 51 - Abby Austin, Alexander Gruenenfelder Smith, Amanda Miguel Staples, Carolyn “Jiyoung” Park, Eric Pierce, Ezra Pugh, Hayley Coupon, Jeremy Gray, Jose Gama Vargas, Lauren Buisson, Philip Iglauer, Selene Betancourt, Victor Frias, Yolanda Nogueira.
