Modified from an original twitter thread.

Angeleno and disappointed about a November ballot with two vile, sundowning ra[ ]ists in Donald Trump and Joe Biden? Vote Gloria La Riva or Angela N. Walker, and then focus on these key down-ballot races and ballot measures. Starting this thread now and will continue adding to it.

Long-time community activist and parent Patricia Castellanos for #LAUSD District 7 is running against a right-of-center, neoliberal, Betsy DeVos-style school privatizer. Patricia Castellanos for School Board

Long-time educator and school administrator Scott M. Schmerelson for #LAUSD District 3 is running to keep his seat against a right-wing, neoliberal, Betsy DeVos-style school privatizer. Scott Mark Schmerelson

Both Castellanos and Schmerelson are supported by Professor Diane Ravitch and a bunch of other public education allies. #LAUSD needs public school supporters, not profit-minded privatizers.

David Kim for Congressional District 34. Kim is a progressive running against a right-of-center, neoliberal, imperialist incumbent. Please support him! @davidkim2020

Yes on Prop 15! (Schools and Communities First). Time for corporations to pay their taxes and contribute to supporting our communities. Schools & Communities First @Schools1stCA

Vote NO On Prop 22! No to right-wing #techbros and their hyper-exploitative ‘gig’ economy. Yes to workers’ power. Vote NO on this reactionary, right-wing scam. @GigWorkersRise
