If you want to take out corporate Democrats, look no further than your backyard, San Franciscans. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is the embodiment of a political machine that values winning – and the money that helps folks win regardless of values – above all.

That’s why I’m working with Stephen Jaffe, a 46-year career civil rights attorney and first-time candidate who stands for progressive values:

  • Restrain U.S. military adventures
  • Pass single payer health care
  • Women’s health and right to choose
  • End the school to prison pipeline
  • Protect cities from gentrification
  • Police brutality
  • Fight global warming
  • No more dirty energy subsidies
  • Stop dirty corporate money
  • Campaign finance reform
  • $15 minimum wage
  • End homelessness
  • Decriminalize mental illness
  • Abolish mandatory arbitration
  • Ensure integrity of the courts
  • Protect religious rights, and the right to no religion
  • Protect animal rights
  • End superdelegates
  • Fund the Arts
  • Free and open internet
