Elect a Democratic Socialist to replace Nancy Pelosi

San Francisco deserves real representation in Congress. Join our movement to fight for our future and create the change we need!

San Francisco deserves a Representative who will championclimate justice, human rights, and racial justice for all.

Shahid embodies San Francisco’s values. He has actively represented both San Francisco and Washington as a legal advocate, national non-profit leader, grassroots organizer, and movement musician. Through his work building movements for peace, immigrant rights, black lives, and the Occupy movement, Shahid dedicated his career to public service long before running for public office.

An early advocate for marriage equality for same-sex couples and a prolific organizer in the movement to end warrantless surveillance, Shahid most recently built a national grassroots network for the Electronic Frontier Foundation as the organization’s Director of Grassroots Advocacy. He has been building social movements and speaking truth to power for two decades, and graduated from Stanford Law School in 2003.

In addition to LGBTQ rights, privacy, and the right to encryption, Shahid’s work has advanced immigrant rights, campaign finance reform, government transparency, international human rights, and police accountability. His writing has explored issues from the right-wing attack on reproductive freedom to the erosion of voting rights, and from effective counter-terrorism strategies to counter-cultural activism leveraging art & culture.

Meet Shahid

We're committed to helping our neighbors and fighting for change during COVID, and we need your help

Coronavirus has devastated families and communities throughout the Bay Area and the country. Our current system isn't keeping up. That's why we're not giving up.

Shahid is fighting for guaranteed sick leave, stable housing as a human right, healthcare for all, student loan relief, and direct relief for working people. In this age of corporate bailouts, overloaded hospitals, and impending mass surveillance by unaccountable tech companies, we're campaigning to prevent dystopia.

The fight has changed, but we still need your help to bring this change to Congress. Instead of campaigning in the streets, we're mobilizing our communities and friends online, on the phones, and on social media. Let's keep up the momentum.
