Samila Amany is an Irvine California activist.

Standing for AD 74

In 2019 Samila Amany stood from AD 74 for the California Democratic Party Central Committee.

As a public university faculty, I am running for Assembly District 74 (AD74), because I am fed up of the establishment office holders taking over. I am many things, but I am an unapologetic union leader and progressive activist first and foremost. I am a fighter, a true humanitarian who helps people in need no matter of their color, gender or religion. I am an active volunteer with Casa Cornelia in San Diego to advocate for asylum seekers and an active volunteer with Friends of Orange Country Detainees (FOCD) which explicitly focuses on vulnerable asylee cases. As FOCD volunteer, I visit ICE detainees in Orange County jails, where the detainees are housed. I am a member of Progressive Democrats of America, a member of Progressive Caucus, a union member, – California Faculty Association, and most importantly a pledged delegate of DNC- Bernie Sanders 2016. I am the Chair for Political Action Committee at CSU-Dominguez Hills (one of the most underfunded campuses in CSU system). My students are predominantly Black and Hispanics, and I have stood up with them against the social and economic injustice on campus and off campus. I consistently advocate for my students on state capital and local level.[1]
