For 3 decades, LINDA PIERA-AVILA has been a passionate environmental, social justice, electoral reform and peace activist.

Maybe you know about LINDA PIERA-AVILA's many dedicated actions to save the environment. She participated in the movement to protect California’s old growth redwood forests, collecting signatures and lobbying in Sacramento, joining with activists such as Julia Butterfly Hill; worked to save the Ballona Wetlands, and going back to the late '80s supported protecting sacred sites and resisting the relocation of native people at Big Mountain.

Maybe you know about LINDA PIERA-AVILA's many actions to support workers’ rights to a living wage and fair working conditions. She joined the picket line in front of Vons on Lincoln Blvd. in solidarity with the striking grocery store workers. She has repeatedly participated in actions to support hotel workers near LAX. This is a personal issue for Linda as her grandfather was a cook at the Miramar in Santa Monica many years ago.

Maybe you know about LINDA PIERA-AVILA's hard work in trying to save the South Central Farm, a community garden that the City of Los Angeles set aside for such purpose on an undeveloped parcel of land in the poorest part of urban Los Angeles. The Farm, sold out from under the Farmers by the city to a Brentwood developer, was eventually razed, but has still not been developed. Efforts continue to reclaim the Farm. That experience taught Linda about the power of community building, which she will bring to her service on the Santa Monica City Council.

Maybe you know that LINDA PIERA-AVILA has spoken many times before the Santa Monica City Council about issues that matter to her, like “clean money,” also known as public financing of campaigns; ranked choice voting, where voters rank their choice of candidate, thus facilitating more representative elections, and resisting the adjacent mega development known as Playa Vista and speaking out for indigenous peoples’ rights.

Now she is putting herself on the line and running for

Santa Monica City Council to put the public back into public service!

LINDA PIERA-AVILA is endorsed by Treesavers, Santa Monica Greens,

Los Angeles Greens, South Central Farm Action Fund, Concerned Residents Against Airport Pollution (C.R.A.A.P.)

Michael Feinstein, former mayor of Santa Monica and Councilmember (1996-2004),

Kelly Hayes-Raitt, former commissioner, SM Commission on the Status of Women,

Tezozomoc, Representative, South Central Farmers,

Dr. Genevieve Marcus, cofounder Green Party of California,

Denise Munro Robb, comic and former L.A. City Council candidate,

Leslie Radford, journalist, Susan Moloney, Campaign for Old Growth,

Maria Loya, Pico Neighborhood Assn. board member,

Oscar de la Torre, President, Santa Monica Malibu Unified School District Board of Education

John Quigley, educator and activist, and many other progressive individuals.
