Meet Jovanka Beckles — candidate for CA's 15th assembly district — Friday at the White Horse Bar. Endorsed by Our Revolution, Democratic Socialists of America — East Bay, Equality California, Harvey Milk LGBTQ Democratic Club, environmentalists, students, labor organizations, and more.
As a two-term city council member in Richmond, Jovanka stood up to big real estate interests and helped Richmond become the first new rent control city in California in over thirty years. Big Soda spent millions as she campaigned to tax their deeply unhealthy products and, instead, to invest revenue in nutrition and youth athletics. Working with law enforcement, Jovanka created the Richmond Municipal ID Program, which allows immigrants to identify themselves safely to police. Jovanka introduced and led the effort to raise the minimum wage to $15 by 01/19 and «banned the box» (removed questions about former conviction) from job applications for city contractors and public housing applications in Richmond. Jovanka never has; never will accept corporate donations. She always has; always will champion government powered by the people.
