If elected, Christina will use this platform to guide what she supports as your representative in the San Diego County Democratic Party Central Committee.
Free Our Folks
When Christina says "Free Our Folks," she means she is committed to supporting candidates and decisions brought before the Central Committee that will free ourselves, folks we love and people in our community from jails, prisons, ICE detention centers, foster care, being racially profiled in our neighborhoods and at all border crossings, predatory lending, housing insecurity, high rent, being harmed while homeless, being harmed while in police custody and student loan debt.
Protect Our Black Trans Sisters
When Christina says "Protect Our Black Trans Sisters," she means she is committed to supporting candidates and decisions brought before the Central Committee that center the safety of and are informed by Black Trans Womxn (click here to learn why Chris uses the "X"). The average life expectancy of a Black Trans Womxn is 35 years of age. The violence Black Trans Womxn receive and that murders them is intertwined with the violence cis womxn (womxn who agree with their gender assignment at birth) receive and are murdered by. The difference is that because of transphobia, queer phobia, misogyny and racism, that violence is compounded and Black Trans Womxn are targets for people whose hate manifests in all those ways. This is not okay. Christina is committed to fighting racism, misogyny, queer phobia, transphobia and homophobia and understands that if the lives, success and survival of Black Trans Womxn, Trans Siblings and Non Binary folks are prioritized, all of us will be safe and valued.
When Christina says "Support Families," she means she is committed to supporting candidates and decisions brought before the Central Committee that will support and improve the lives of families of people who are union members and workers; people who are in the military; people who have been killed by police; people who are living in non traditional housing (homeless); people who are supporting a loved one who has a disability and people who are living in jails, prisons, foster care, or ICE detention centers.
