David is a pastor’s son who grew up moving around a lot. He went to UC Berkeley and law school before joining the LA County District Attorney’s Office. David then transitioned into his own legal practice. At his heart he is an activist with a passion for improving the world.

David has spent his professional career lending his voice to the underrepresented in our communities- most recently, fulfilling our great country’s promise to immigrants by serving as their attorney in immigration court. His professional experience granted him a perspective that has shaped his campaign: humanity-focused policies, a commitment to understanding our local communities and constituents’ needs, and a refusal to take corporate/PAC donations, all to guarantee that he represents the will of the people- to put his Community First.

Sunrise LA is excited to endorse David Kim for CA-34. We are thrilled at the possibility of having another representative in Congress that supports a Green New Deal. If David is elected we know he’ll work to pass legislation that supports the environment and the people.
I am proud to endorse David Kim because he is ready to fight to help all Americans gain equal footing in an unjust & broken system. David’s campaign is 100% people-powered which means that when he goes to Washington he will do so on behalf of you, the voters, and not corporations or special interest groups – his vote cannot be bought.

One of the top priorities for California Progressive Alliance is getting good, progressive, corporate-free candidates elected to office and that is why we endorse David Kim. We know now more than ever that our country needs policies like Medicare for All and David will fight for that. David understands that ‘business as usual’ and going back to ‘normal’ are not acceptable stances. Our country and our planet need visionaries like David to push for the bold actions that are required for us, and future generations, to have a chance at a livable future. Stand with David and his bold progressive vision for the future!
