Creative. Effective. Courageous. Leadership
For CA-30.

Laura Friedman is running to succeed Congressmember Adam Schiff in California’s 30th Congressional District. Laura has an extraordinary record of progressive leadership as a State Assemblymember; Glendale City Councilmember and Mayor, community activist; and in the private sector.


From banning gun shows from being held on Glendale city property and across the street from schools, authoring meaningful legislation to add more affordable housing, ending the fur trade in California, co-authoring single-payer healthcare legislation and authoring first-in-the-nation legislation to combat climate change, Laura has achieved results on every progressive issue in California politics. Now she wants to use her experience to bring about effective change in Congress.
