SYDNEY KAMLAGER DOVE – THE RIGHT WOMAN, THE RIGHT TIME, AND THE RIGHT CANDIDATE FOR THE CALIFORNIA STATE SENATE
February 18, 2021
Former State Senator and now Los Angeles County Supervisor Holly Mitchell has left Sacramento.  While her ascension to the Board of Supervisors has pleased so many of her supporters, it has left a crucial vacancy in the halls of the State Capitol.  Not only for a Senator to represent the 30th Senate District with one of the most racially and economically diverse districts in the state, Mitchell’s vacancy also leaves the entire State of California with no African American woman in the California Senate and currently, State Senator Steve Bradford is the only African American Senator representing the entire state. ... read more »

Black Representation Matters: How a Rigged System Eliminated the Only Black Seat on the Los Angeles Community College Board
June 18, 2018
This was clearly a predetermined game wherein the will of the community (who refused to elect Vela twice in his previous election bids and came out strongly for me), the endorsements of Black elected officials (like Assemblymember Kamlager-Dove and Senator Mitchell who endorsed Ms. Shaw and Councilmember Harris-Dawson who endorsed me), the support of students, faculty, and staff (who all participated in an interview process and unanimously supported Valerie and me), and the qualifications of candidates did not matter. Instead, the seven-member Board, which already had three Latino males, appointed a fourth...who has no background in public higher education or any experience related to the post. He was nominated by a right-wing Trump supporter (Ernie Moreno) and the rest of the Board voted unanimously in his favor. ... read more »

A New Leader for the LACCD Board of Trustees? There’s Only One Choice
July 10, 2017
When the Los Angeles Community College Board of Trustees elects its new President next week, they have a chance to make a statement--they can elect a leader who both looks like and understands the students the district serves. Why is it important? The new President will become the face of the district, and with nearly four out of five students coming from minority backgrounds, that face should reflect the composition of the colleges. That's why we are urging the LACCD Board of Trustees to elevate Sydney Kamlager-Dove to its presidency. ... read more »
