Alex Mohajer

State Senate, District 37, CA

2024 Endorsement

Alex is a candidate for California State Senate in the 37th Senate District. Born and raised in Orange County, CA, Alex is the son of Iranian working-class immigrants and has deep roots in his hometown. He received his education from Irvine K-12 public schools, UC Berkeley, and Chapman University School of Law, where he earned his law degree.

Over the past decade, Alex has dedicated his career to civil service advocacy, with a focus on investigating and trying cases related to workplace protections under Title VII. In addition to his legal work, he is an accomplished independent political writer and organizer, and has been recognized with awards for his contributions in these areas. He has also served as President of the Stonewall Democrats, further demonstrating his commitment to advancing progressive causes.

In his campaign for State Senate, Alex is running a grassroots movement that prioritizes the economic dignity of working-class families. Key issues he is focusing on include affordable housing, access to single-payer healthcare, expanding mental health resources, drug and alcohol rehabilitation, and combatting climate change. Notably, he is the only candidate in his race who has accepted the no-fossil fuels and no corporate PAC money pledge.

If elected, Alex will make history in multiple ways. He would become Orange County's first openly LGBTQ+ legislator, the only Iranian serving in the California legislature, and globally, the first openly gay Iranian man elected to public office. These groundbreaking achievements will further enhance his ability to advocate for diverse communities and bring positive change to the State Senate.
