CANDIDATES
Danielle Sandoval

I’m a community leader, entrepreneur, and former Neighborhood Council Budget Advocate.  With over a decade of advocacy experience, I’ve held LA City Hall accountable for delivering clean air, especially to communities impacted by the Port of LA, and ensuring essential services are provided equitably to underserved communities. I’m running for Los Angeles City Council to lift the voices of those who are too often left behind, being a voice for those who have been neglected and ignored. 
After spending 20 years working in the hospitality industry, I sought economic and social mobility by starting my own small business. As an entrepreneur and paralegal working at firms specializing in civil litigation, intellectual property, and family law, I partnered with a colleague to launch a firm offering low-cost legal assistance in communities of color. I became involved in the labor movement and previously served as ILWU Federated Auxiliary 8 President, ILWU Federated Auxiliaries Treasurer, and an ILWU Southern California District Council delegate. I’m committed to workers’ rights and marched in solidarity with Los Angeles’ teachers and hosted organizing meetings when they were on strike, and openly spoke out against Port automation. 
I’m a proud mother of three. My oldest son is an International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 11 member and a U.S. Army Sergeant. My daughter attends Charles Drew University and my youngest son attends an LAUSD public school.
