SHETARRAH BYFIELD

Civil Rights Activist, Youth Advocate, Organizer, and Resister

Compassionate, Dedicated, Loyal, Up-front and Ambitious. These are the characteristics that I will bring to the table everyday as I serve as a delegate to the California State Democratic Party for Assembly District 54. This is my first time running as a delegate and I couldn't be more honored and excited for this opportunity. I believe in change. I believe all change is fundamental for our society to improve. Change happens from the inside out with leaders who have the courage to listen to the needs of the community. It happens when we have different folks from different backgrounds who make our voices heard. 

 

I am a fierce advocate for: 

  • Black Lives Matter

  • Ending voter suppression

  • Police reform 

  • LGBTQ+ Equality 

  • Changing mental health systems

  • Investing in the most vulnerable especially during COVID-19

  • Green New Deal

  • Gun violence prevention

  • Student loan forgiveness 

 

I care deeply about our democracy! This last year leading up to the November general elections I worked on over 15 federal races to win back control of Washington. When I found out Georgia’s two Senate races were going to a run-off, I started to feel uncomfortable with how distanced I was from the state. I realized quickly that I desperately wanted to be there, organizing on the ground, to help finish what I set out to do: fighting for our democracy, fighting for women, fighting for youth, fighting for people of color. So, that's what I did and I'm extremely proud of the work I've been able to accomplish here. I’m extremely proud of the work I've been  able to accomplish in Georgia. I am so  ready to apply what I've learned here to continue to help improve my own community in AD54! 

If I have the privilege of serving as your delegate, I will show up and fight for our shared progressive values every single day!
