Southern California ADA Backs Progressive Candidates
Endorsements are a specialty of the Southern California chapter of ADA. SoCal ADA will need its long-standing expertise to sort through 18 candidates seeking to replace retiring liberal icon Henry Waxman in a west Los Angeles U.S. House seat. Show business is, not surprisingly, well represented among the resumes of hopefuls running in a district that encompasses Beverly Hills and Malibu. Find out tomorrow what SoCal ADA is doing to ensure the most progressive candidate wins this key race (and other less glamorous contests) in this week’s Wednesday Campaign Wrap-Up.
ADA's Delaware chapter is leading a call to support redistricting reform in Delaware. With 24 legislators co-sponsoring Delaware Senate Bill 48, community advocates are hopeful that this will be the year the Delaware legislature will vote to bring the redistricting process out from behind closed doors. In preparation for Wednesday's vote, ADA Delaware and its coalition members are holding a press conference today at the steps of the Delaware Legislative Hall.
