GET TO KNOW
Reggie Jones-Sawyer knows the struggles of inequality and injustice — because he's lived them. Reggie grew up in our community, experiencing poverty and learning from his family the critical need for social, economic and racial justice. He worked as a labor leader, advocating for better wages and job protections for workers.
In the State Assembly, Reggie has fought to raise the minimum wage and worked to make community college free for all Californians. He's delivered billions of dollars for new affordable housing, led efforts to protect renters from abusive landlords and evictions, and invested in supportive services to combat the homelessness crisis. And Reggie has passed legislation to make our neighborhoods safer and protect children from sex traffickers.
Fighting for Us
Now, Reggie is running for LA City Council to fight corruption in City Hall and restore trust for the people. He will work to make the minimum wage a living wage, lower housing costs to provide a pathway to home ownership for young people and communities of color, build more housing for the homeless, and help get unhoused people experiencing mental illness or addiction off our streets and into the housing and treatment they need.
