Adriana became an activist as a result of the 2016 election cycle, vowing to participate in politics to help protect the next generation of Americans. Prior to becoming disabled, she worked as an Account Manager for ten years. She uses her prior career skills to serve other Democratic voters, activists and those in her community.
Adriana is detailed orientated, making her a natural fit for her role as the Secretary of the CDC, which she was elected to in November of 2019. She is also involved in the Tech Standing Committee because she understands the value of time and cost savings the Sponsored Website Project brings to our Club and Central Committee affiliates. After all, she is a member of the Mother Lode Democrats of Amador and the Amador County Democratic Central Committee, and she maintains their joint website.
Adriana is a State Delegate for years 2019-20. She looks forward to developing strong relationships with fellow Club Activists and Central Committee Members throughout the state and will do all she can to assist with their website needs.
Kristal is the acting Secretary for the California Democratic Council.
Born in Visalia, raised in Tulare in our Central Valley. I have always felt that I was destined to do great for our community. I proudly set on the Tulare County Democratic Central Committee (TCDCC) as the parliamentarian. In the past, I have dedicated much of my time helping to raise funds on the fundraising committee. My democratic values and dedications have grown tremendously over the years, as we witness a political dark cloud over our country today. We must come together and support one another in this fight for our democracy.
I am a proud brother of Nu Alpha Kappa Fraternity at Fresno State University, where I am a full-time student majoring in sociology. I look forward to continuing my educational journey into my master’s in social work. Once I have obtained these degrees, I feel I will be in the capacity to help our community even more. Community to me is very important as I feel without community, we lose ourselves. Throughout my years I have been not just actively involved in party activities but also in other activities involving helping out the community, such as raising money to end polio, donating and delivering turkeys to those in need, getting involved with helping our local homeless population, and many others. I am thankful for being elected as controller of the California Democratic Council and look forward to helping keep our party accountable to the people they represent.

The CDC has an important and long standing historical position as THE support resources for grassroots activists’ and Dem Club building. As a standalone entity, the CDC has the ability to fundraise, train and contribute to Organizations, Clubs, Candidates and Causes, well beyond the limits of the CDP.
It is important to support AND train others to seek out best practices and sourcing to encourage grassroots activists/organizations to learn how to organize, engage, listen, educate, motivate and leverage skills to build organizations, ground games, building their bench of future candidates, and learning to leverage their spheres of influence.
