Soli Alpert is Executive Vice President at Our Revolution - The Progressive Student Association. Candidate at Berkeley Rent Board.


  • Studies Political science at UC Berkeley
  • Went to Lowell High School


Standing for AD 15

In 2019 Soli Alpert stood from AD 15 for the California Democratic Party Central Committee.


“I am an elected member of the Berkeley Rent Stabilization Board, Legislative Assistant to Berkeley Councilmember Rigel Robinson, Secretary-Controller/Parliamentarian of the California Young Democrats Progressive Caucus, Chief of Staff for the East Bay Young Democrats, and a student at UC Berkeley. I am on the Steering Committees of the Wellstone Democratic Renewal Club and Our Revolution - East Bay, and am a member of the Stonewall LGBT Democratic Club, the East Bay Democratic Socialists of America, and the John George Democratic Club. Previously, I served as the Political Director of the Cal Berkeley Democrats and Executive VP of the UC Berkeley Progressive Students Association.

I have spent the better part of my time since graduating high school fighting for progressive causes and candidates who advance them. I know, particularly as a young person, the severity of the challenges we face and the urgency that is called for in addressing them. With total Democratic control in California, it is unacceptable that our elected representatives have shied away from the hard work that needs to be done to create a more equitable state for all Californians.

As a delegate to the State Democratic Party, I will advance causes like a state level Single Payer Healthcare program, a publicly run utility to replace PG&E, more robust environmental justice and climate change action, and criminal justice reform including felon enfranchisement. I will push for solutions to our housing affordability crisis including robust social housing programs that provide true housing affordability, rather than relying on the private market which has time and again failed the most vulnerable in our community. We desperately need more protections for California tenants to stop our gentrification crisis. The State Party must continue to fight to repeal Costa-Hawkins, and must broaden its scope to statewide just cause for eviction laws. I will also pursue internal reforms to our Party, including expanding access to Party offices for youth and the undocumented and pushing the party to aggressively pursue our progressive agenda at the state legislature.[1]
