Working with you – residents of the Sonoma County community – we represent your needs, issues, and concerns in areas that affect your human rights. We work to bring attention to the issues faced by marginalized or disadvantaged members of our communities to those in elected office. Through us, you have a voice.
Currently, we have openings in the 1st, 3rd, 4th, and 5th Districts – please consider getting involved!
