NAOMI GOLDMAN

Activist, Housing Advocate, Policy/Crisis Pro, Social Changemaker

I’m a Jewish, feminist, progressive and daughter of an immigrant – and longtime Westwood resident.  I’m proudly running to serve as delegate to the California Democratic Party in AD54 on the Forward 54 slate, because we have so much vital work ahead to lift up all Californians. We need champions for progressive values and I’m that proven advocate, activist and fighter.  

We must invest in our most vulnerable Californians and make bold, systemic and sustainable change.  COVID-19 has exacerbated all of the holes in our safety net.  It’s not radical to demand that everyone should have food, housing, a living wage, quality healthcare, mental health services and education.  We must protect reproductive rights, ensure economic security, tackle climate change and eliminate the daily threats of violence, hate and discrimination.  Equity and justice must guide dramatic criminal justice reform and alternatives to incarceration. And it’s time for the hard work of rebuilding safe and humane asylum protections that welcome immigrants.

 

Professionally, I’ve worked to combat and prevent homelessness; built coalitions and programs around public health, access to healthcare and environmental protection; developed protocols to fight harassment and discrimination; and helped many (too many) communities plan for and survive gun violence and disasters. My activism went full throttle when the GOP took control four years ago and never looked back, working this cycle to elect Joe Biden/Kamala Harris with Grassroots Democrats HQ, CADEM, SeaChange and mobilize volunteers for local, state and federal races as a GOTV leader for Christy Smith and LA County Supervisor Holly Mitchell and Board member of Heart of LA Democratic Club (where I’ve led our legislative advocacy).  I’m also on the Democrats for Israel – CA Board, Westside Democratic HQ Steering Committee as their member rep to the LA County Democratic Party, active with the Jewish Legislative and Women’s Caucuses, a UCLA Alumni Mentor and disaster responder/educator with American Red Cross.  

 

It’s time for serious changemakers to propel our Party forward and I would be honored to receive your vote!

Please vote the complete FORWARD 54 slate so we can work together to accomplish these goals.
