Corresponding Secretary - Angela Scott
In this time of national reckoning, we must be unapologetic in our advocacy to complete our military mission: Leave no one behind! During wartime, this mission means ensuring the safety of your fellow service members. Today, we are facing a national reckoning, where our Veteran community is also learning to navigate within a pandemic, racial reckoning, and the many nuances of military-civilian-life-balance. I proudly served in the Navy for eight years and am well aware of the difficulty many military folks face when transitioning to civilian life.
As both a woman of color and a Veteran, I agree that we must do a better job of taking care of our military family. Part of my job within the California Democratic Party Veterans Caucus and as Corresponding Secretary is to ensure communication is distributed to our Veteran community.
Impactful change can only happen when it is intentional. Progressive political action requires passion and tenacity to fuel sustainable change on micro-and macro-levels. I’m here to serve, bringing my passion and drive in hopes of collaborating with you. Along with serving as a California Democratic Party Assembly District 50 Delegate, I’m also a member of the California Democratic Party Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Standing Committee, which allows me to voice the concerns of our constituents as well as create and follow policy.
On a local level, I serve as Commissioner on the Santa Monica Public Safety Reform & Oversight Commission (PSROC). As a Steering Committee member on the Committee for Racial Justice and Santa Monica Black Agenda, I work in solidarity to create an equal playing field by addressing rent control and affordable housing shortages, police reform, decent living wages, seeking healthcare for all, and environmental justice.
Most importantly, I’m honored to represent you as we boldly envision a California that truly takes care of its Veteran community, ensuring high-quality resources and support. Through concerted efforts with you, I’m looking to accomplish a robust 2-Year Work Plan:
