Biography

Kenneth is a 27-year-old first generation Filipino-American Community Organizer, Certified Public Accountant (CPA), and Board Member of the Wilshire Center Koreatown Neighborhood Council.

Kenneth believes that Healthcare, Housing, Education, and a Clean Green Environment are Human Rights and will fight in Congress to make that happen.

Community Organizer - Kenneth organizes with the LA Tenants Union to fight for Universal Rent Control and to help tenants facing unjust evictions and immoral rent increases. He organizes with the community service group, “We Can Make a Difference – LA”, providing meals, blankets, hygienic products, clothing, and shoes to the homeless, school supplies to low income families, funds for tenants fighting rent increases or evictions, and environmental community cleanups. He also organizes to fight for Single Payer healthcare by organizing marches, rallies, and canvassing events to educate the community.

Certified Public Accountant - Kenneth worked as an auditor auditing large multi-million & billion-dollar corporations to ensure that their financial statements were in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.

Neighborhood Council Board Member – Kenneth fights for working class families and those living in poverty constantly voting “No” on statements of support for real estate developments of market rate apartments being built due to the higher rent increase and displacement it will bring, and that the average working family in Los Angeles cannot afford these apartments. Kenneth has also taken the charge in pushing his Board to endorse the Repeal of Costa Hawkins which would allow cities across California to enact Rent Control.

— May 15, 2018 Kenneth Mejia for Congress

Los Angeles, vote on June 5 for something NEW! Vote for YOU!

US Senator Bernie Sanders giving advice to Kenneth Mejia for Congress!

"You have got to be imbued with the passion and then have the guts to stand up to powerful people... And not a lot of folks have that courage..."

WE are continuing the Political Revolution right here in Los Angeles' #CA34 where it was the ONLY District in LA County to win for Bernie!

We are fighting for Revolutionary change like single payer healthcare, tuition free public college and university, cancelling student debt, full legal status for all immigrants, universal rent control, and ranked choice voting!

Our election is June 5 and we actually have a great chance in beating our establishment Congressman backed by Health Insurance, Big Pharma, and Telecommunication companies. We need to place in the TOP 2 spots to advance to the General Election in November and there are only 3 of us running!

We have less than 3 months and we need all hands on deck! We have volunteer opportunities for those that live in Los Angeles and out of state! Also, please consider donating $27 to our campaign!
