Kevin De Leon
U.S. Senate, California
Kevin De Leon is a progressive champion, the first Latino elected to the leadership of the California State Senate in over a century, with a proven track record of powerful, effective organizing towards racial and economic justice. In the Assembly and later in the State Senate, De Leon has been a tireless organizer and advocate for immigrants rights, for public schools, for climate justice and for an economy that serves all working families across California, not just the wealthiest few.
California stands at the frontlines of a historic struggle for the very soul of America, against a President without one. In this political moment, with a Trump administration and GOP attacking our civil rights, our clean air, our health access and our public safety, as Kevin De Leon says, “we can no longer afford to be polite or patient, conciliatory or complacent. We can’t cross our fingers and hope that Trump can “learn and change.” “
Californians can’t concede on these core values – it’s time to lead. California deserves a Senator that will not just resist the Trump Presidency but one that also understands the issues that most Californians face everyday. As State Senator, Kevin De Leon has led the way on getting money out of politics, on moving single-payer health care legislation forward, and protecting sanctuary cities. California and our Nation need a Senator that will build on that track record in Washington, stand up to Wall Street, fight for Medicare for All, prioritize the fight against climate change, and focus on the lives of everyday people and how we are going to make this economy work for everyone, not just for the top 1%.
