Angelica Dueñas was born and raised in Sun Valley by her parents Mr. and Mrs. Dueñas, who immigrated from Mexico.
Angelica has lived a life familiar to that of many other locals, and is a product of public school through LAUSD, including Roscoe Elementary School, Byrd Middle School, and Polytechnic High School.
A defining event in Angelica's childhood was when her mother lost her job in 1997. Mrs. Dueñas had worked 21 years at the Price Pfister factory in Pacoima.
As NAFTA gave way for countless companies, to export jobs to a place with lower worker and environmental protections, this family crisis sparked young Angelica's lifetime commitment to fight for social justice.
Why She's Running
Angelica Dueñas is running for Congress for California District 29, and with the help of the people, she has made into the runoff for the November 3rd 2020 general election. Our 100% people-powered movement achieved this while taking ZERO corporate money. By doing so, come Election Day, the people of the Valley will have finally elected an unapologetic progressive to represent California's 29th Congressional District who is beholden only to the people of her district and not big money special interests for the very first time.
Growing up in the valley, Angelica knows first-hand that the priorities of the District, as well as those of America’s working families everywhere, will not be met by our government until voters elect members of America’s working class to the House or Representatives and Senate. To finally get a government representative of the people, we need people that not only look and talk like us, but people who come from our very own communities and who will not turn their backs on the people for profit and big corporate checks.
As a member of Congress, Angelica will put #PeopleFirst and fight for policies that work for our communities to deliver results that bring tangible improvements to the lives of her San Fernando Valley constituents.
Medicare for All - Healthcare is a Human Right
End Homelessness - Housing as a Right.
Humane Paths to Citizenship - No human being is illegal. Immigration Reform policies that treat hard-working people and their families with both the compassion they deserve and the principles of fairness that every American values.
Jobs for All - A Green New Deal: Incentivize job creation, affordable and low-income housing construction, while simultaneously ensuring that vital social service programs receive full federal funding.
End Citizens United - Get corporate money out of politics
Election Integrity - From primaries through general elections. She will fight to guarantee that no election is rigged, that all votes are counted and that all voters have unimpeded access to the ballot box.
End All Wars - Angelica will advocate for a humane foreign policy that is based on the fundamentals of human dignity and peace.
We need and deserve a strong human rights activist in Congress. Someone who will fight for our families and always put people first. Angelica Dueñas is that person.
