Justin Sha

I am a proud millennial fighting to make a difference for all stakeholders in AD20 and the East Bay. Having passed the California Bar, I currently work at the Oakland City Attorney’s Office, and I teach business law as an adjunct professor at Ohlone College. This past November, I ran for local office in Fremont’s most competitive City Council race; I received the highest vote count of any Democrat eligible for the ACDP endorsement.

My top issues are single-payer healthcare and universal basic income. I believe in harnessing technological progress to benefit the People, not corporate profits. To me, an equitable financial system enables all families to save and build assets. I support initiatives that crack down on new forms of predatory lending as well as those that increase access to those most marginalized by our mainstream banking system. I also support net neutrality, and I am strongly opposed to the erosion of our privacy rights. In our local communities, I support only responsible development and growth.

I self-identify as a cisgender queer Asian American, and it is important to me that all voices are represented and heard.
