Hi, I’m Buffy Wicks. Yes, that’s my real name.
I am a community organizer, an advocate for kids, and a new mother of an adorable baby girl named Josephine. We call her JoJo.
I’m also a candidate to be the next Assemblymember for District 15 in the East Bay.
We are in a scary moment in our country’s history, and I feel lucky to be raising my baby daughter in a progressive community like ours that rejects President Trump’s hateful rhetoric and harmful policies. But we can’t let what’s happening in Washington define us.
Here in California, we have a real opportunity not just to resist, but to put forth bold, progressive public policy that reflects our shared values and builds a more just and equitable society. California should be the leader in showing America what progressive governance can be.
I want to be the Assemblywoman that leads that fight.
I’m ready to organize for change as I have for my entire life. I’m ready to build coalitions in our community from Oakland to Hercules. I’m ready to fight for you and with you to give families like yours and mine the best future possible.
