“Dave Min has a track-record as a skilled, progressive community advocate who is especially strong on issues of women’s equality. His wife, Jane, has been a tireless legal champion for domestic violence survivors – her work as the Chair of the UCI Domestic Clinic, helping draft A.B. 2694 to increase access to service in domestic violence cases, has informed Dave’s hardline approach to women’s rights. He promises to deliver on issues like pay equality, reproductive care access, and preventing sexual harrassment/violence against women – because of this, I am proud to endorse him for State Senate District 37.”

Dave is not only great on the issues – pay equality, greater access to reproductive care, stronger protections for victims of domestic violence – but his long history of public policy expertise means he is uniquely well equipped to go to the State Senate and fight for our priorities. I cannot think of a better candidate for this seat than Dave Min.”
