As a community activist and organizer, I have fought hard to advance the message of healthcare justice. I was the Los Angeles regional coordinator for the Healthy California Campaign, the coalition behind the Medicare-for-All bill, SB 562. Seeing the value of connecting person-to-person, I have worked with community groups, unions, and everyone from students to senior populations to organize over hundreds of events and meetings to educate on the values of a single payer system. I frequently work with progressive powerhouse organizations, including the California Nurses Association, the California Alliance for Retired Americans, Labor United for Universal Healthcare, and many hard-working grassroots groups that keep our communities informed and engaged.

Highly valuing civic engagement, I have helped organize over 250 activists to lobby every assemblymember and senator in the state of California on the issues of healthcare, fair housing, and the economic hardships of vulnerable seniors.

My work as an organizer utilizes many of the skills I learned through publishing at Conde Nast, marketing, and copywriting for various industries. Honest and open communication is essential, and I believe in regularly connecting with our legislators.

On a personal note, I am the daughter of South Korean immigrants. I grew up with a disabled father, a severely autistic brother, a dear sister, and an exceptionally strong mother who worked tirelessly to be the bread winner for us all.

As a delegate, I intend to take my role seriously, to not only meet my convention duties but to help elevate the voices of our communities and continue building political will to achieve real change.[1]

We ended up at the doorstep of reporter Libby Denkmann of KPCC today. She remained neutral with us, but we felt good about our conversation. She tweeted about us afterwards so she must've found the issue at least somewhat relevant 😉🙂 Michelle Faust is the health care reporter. Public opinion does matter to newsrooms. Michelle's email is if you care to say a few for single payer SB562. Push the narrative everywhere.

Jimmy Gomez connection

Hsingii Tseng Bird August 31, 2017:

1st they made us remove our signs, filtered out any hard question regards to Single Payer, then they tried to shout us down while we chanted "Single Payer Now" at the end of the "forum". We won't give up the fight for Single Payer Healthcare, and we are so tired of hearing excuses and talking points from leaders influenced by for-profit private insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies. Medicare for all coverage is long over due! #WeakSauceForum #SB562 #HealthyCA

  • Jimmy explaining to our group that he has been trying to push for Medicare for All bill since the 90s, but it has been very hard. (We know it's hard, but you have the power to be on the side of the people. We hire you to work for us, so Do Your Fucking Job!!!!) — with Jenni Chang and Una Lee Jost in Boyle Heights City Hall.
