Adrienne Nicole Edwards is a Social services provider running for the 34th Congressional District seat to replace incumbent, Xavier Becerra, who has been chosen by Jerry Brown as the new California Attorney General. [1]


Adrienne is a activist and community organizer.

She ran for public office twice against Xavier Becerra for the House of Representative seat in the 34th Congressional District. In 2016, she had 23% of the vote. [undefined] [undefined]



The elections for the 34th Congressional District of California are considered to be a prevailing Democratic election - as out of the 23 candidates, only one is running as a republican. The election is meant to replace Xavier Becerra (D), who was appointed by Jerry Brown as the California Attorney General. [undefined]


  • Strengthening Families: Many California families struggle to make ends meet.Women are still paid less than men for the same work.The United States remains one of the only industrialized nations in the world that provides no paid leave of any kind.And Republicans in Congress continue to attack women’s health at every turn, including repeated attempts to defund Planned Parenthood.
  • Addressing the Growing Homeless Crisis: Homelessness increased in the last year in the city and county of Los Angeles, leaving nearly 56,000 people in the streets and shelters despite an intensive federal push that slashed the numbers of homeless veterans by nearly a third, according to figures released by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority.Homelessness has increased steadily since 2013, as local officials struggle to identify funding for billion-dollar plans like HHH.
  • Creating World Class Schools: Quality public schools are the key to helping families thrive in Los Angeles and ensure that everyone can fully participate in our growing economy.For too long, California schools have been underfunded, our teachers have been forced to increasingly teach to the test, and our students have been forced into a one-size-fits-all approach to learning that leaves too many of them behind.
  • Preserving Our Natural Resources & Addressing Climate Change: We have seen first hand the damage that pollution does to our community, while witnessing the devastating effects that climate change is having all over the world.If we don’t take action now, we will leave future generations with economic and health issues that will only grow more costly and difficult.You can’t fight something if you don’t have the courage to admit that it exists.
  • Making College More Affordable and Loan Forgiveness*: Adrienne feels a college education should be free for all and debt forgiveness for existing loans be implemented. The cost of a college education has spiraled out of reach for many middle class families. Students are being forced to take on crushing debt in order to pay for college, and each year there are fewer jobs available for recent college graduates. We are saddled with $1.2 trillion of student loan debt.[undefined]
