About Adrienne Edwards for Congress
Adrienne Edwards proudly represents California’s 34th Congressional District. The District includes Chinatown, Downtown LA, Highland Park, Garvanza, Westlake, Koreatown, Little Tokyo, Boyle Heights, Eagle Rock, Mount Washington, Cypress Park, Lincoln Heights, City Terrace, El Sereno and Monterey Hills. Adrienne decided to run for the United States House of Representatives because she believes that Congress still operates on many 18th century rules that slow down the voting process at the rate in which bills are passed. Adrienne is confident we can honor the tradition of Congress and still upgrade the institution by use of innovative technologies to convey positive energy, new ideas and a problem-solving spirit of working together with Congress.
Dedication has tremendously defined Adrienne Edward's life, from her first career opportunity working on a local campaign, to her humanitarian efforts as a community organizer, to various endeavors in the political field. After a stint in college and holding various positions on political campaigns, Adrienne compassionately turned toward public service and the needs of her community.
Adrienne was inspired by her mother's service as a Housing Counselor where she helped individuals and families in the community save their homes from foreclosure after the market crashed. Adrienne joined her mother's cause to protect victims and served the cause of justice in any way she could. That experience alone inspired Adrienne and gave her a drive to fight for people who lack the resources and support to fight for themselves. Adrienne has helped hundreds of people save their homes and hundreds more find a new beginning with the first time home buyers program.
In addition to her public service tenure, Adrienne continues to demonstrate excellent leadership in her community and volunteers with various non-profits religiously. She worked on the largest Presidential campaigns to date, holding the position of Deputy Operations Director. Adrienne also sits as Vice Chairman on the HDT Community Development Foundation board and continues to strengthen her community by mentoring at local high schools, assisting the homeless and informing her community of helpful resources available to them. Adrienne strives to create a positive atmosphere in her District. As a Congressional candidate Adrienne's goal is to utilize a common-sense, bipartisan approach to pursue creative policies that foster new jobs, balance the city’s yearly budget, entice viticulture, and enhance the region’s economic viability.
Adrienne has 2 siblings, an older brother and younger sister and is supported by a host of family and friends.
