“Our environmental protections and civil rights are under attack. Join my coalition in the fight to protect abortion rights, clean air and water for future generations.”
– Sara Aminzadeh
As your Assemblymember, I’ll fight like a mother for our reproductive freedom and the environment. I’m honored that organizations like Planned Parenthood, NARAL Pro-Choice California, and Clean Water Action have joined Team Sara –they know I’ll take bold action to address the most urgent issues of our time.
With reproductive choice, access to contraception, and LGBTQ rights under attack, now is not the time for “more of the same.”
Women’s reproductive rights are facing a greater threat than ever before. As the repeal of Roe v. Wade shows, the lack of representation by women and mothers in government has real consequences.
That’s why I am seeking to be the first woman and working mom to represent our region in over 20 years.
I’ll also bring bold ideas and action and my national track record winning tough environmental battles to Sacramento. The time is now to protect our air, water, and climate for future generations, accelerate commitments to ending fossil fuel use, and continue working to secure the resources needed to respond to a changing climate.
I am a California Coastal Commissioner and environmental attorney who has spent two decades successfully defending the Clean Water Act, holding big polluters accountable, and taking on Donald Trump to defend California’s protections.
As your Assemblymember, I’ll bring my national track record of developing legislation on climate change, water supply reliability, and coastal protection to Sacramento — ensuring reduced wildfire risk, clean air, and clean water for future generations like my 4-year-old, Henry.
California Environmental Voters and Clean Water Action endorse my plan to tackle drought and conserve water supply — developed with water leaders, environmental advocates, and farmers across our District.
I will fight for solutions to issues affecting our families:
✓ Expanding affordable housing for teachers, firefighters, and essential workers without increasing traffic.
✓ Reducing the risk of wildfires.
✓ Creating solutions to reduce homelessness — and ensuring every family access to quality jobs, affordable healthcare, and mental health support.
✓ Protecting our farmlands, natural areas, and rural way of life.
I’m endorsed by Congressman Jared Huffman, Lieutenant Governor Eleni Kounalakis, and scores of current state legislators, enabling me to hit the ground running in service to you. Join us!
