Cindy Sheehan, aged 56, is an internationally renowned peace and social justice activist.
Sheehan’s oldest son Casey was killed in Iraq on April 04, 2004 and many came to know about her and her work when she set up a peace camp near the faux-ranch of then president George W. Bush in Crawford, TX in the summer of 2005.
Since then, Cindy Sheehan, has traveled the world working with fellow activists demanding peace and working with others to help create a world that is peaceful and more economically secure and equal.
Cindy Sheehan is a native Californian who was raised in a California where education was excellent and other social safety nets were not as small and filled with holes so big, millions of Californians fall through while the rich and corporations keep exploiting more of this state's wealth and resources.
Sheehan majored in California History at UCLA and envisions a state that leads the world in peace, economic stability and equality, environmental sustainability and delivering high-quality public education from pre-K through university. She knows it can be done because it has been done before.
Cindy Sheehan has published seven books, been arrested for peace about 21 times, is currently a resident of Vacaville, CA and the mother of three surviving children and four grandchildren who are her love and her inspiration.

The California Democratic Party has turned a blind eye to the needs of the people of California in the name of profit for the 1%. Cindy and the Peace and Freedom Party will bring about the true change our state needs: A Candidate and a Party of the People.
Join Cindy and her Team at the California Democratic Convention. California is a blue state, so why are we still struggling for basic human rights and needs? Maybe Blue isn't so true?
California Governor Jerry Brown and the Democratic political establishment with a stranglehold on state politics keep touting an imaginary recovery and accomplishments.
This is how Cindy Sheehan for Cal Gov, 2014 sees it:
"Fiscal Responsibility" of proto-Republican Jerry Brown helps the banks and wealthy and harms the already vulnerable of our State.
25% of our citizens live in poverty.
California has one of the highest unemployment rates in the nation.
Over one-million are homeless.
State University and college fees rise dramatically with the massive increase in prison spending and solitary confinement that benefits the Prison Industrial Complex.
Our K-12 schools consistently rate near the bottom of the country in all measurable standards.
In the middle of a drought, Brown approves more hydro-fracturing which wastes millions of gallons of water while polluting communities and ground water.
The Democratic establishment attacks peaceful protest while not holding violent cops accountable.
Brown refuses to raise taxes on corporations and the wealthy to fairly distribute our income and resources.
Brown gives more tax breaks to his friends in the oil business while California's public transportation systems and infrastructure are woefully inadequate and dangerous.
We are ready for A New Day and a New Way for California.

Vote Socialist Campaign Kick-off
Saturday March 8 San Francisco
Join Peace and Freedom Party candidates Frank Lara for Congress-12th District (Pelosi, Nathalie Hrizi for CA Insurance Commissioner, Cindy Sheehan for Governor for a campaign reception that will include political discussion, music and poetry. Frank Lara and Nathalie Hrizi are also members of the Party for Socialism and LIberation--which is hosting the kickoff.
As the working class is being pushed out of San Francisco, as police brutality is on the rise across California, as endless war continues, as working people are losing access to public transportation and education, to health care and basic human rights, socialist candidates are in the streets and in the elections to fight for people's needs. Join us for an evening to kick-off campaigns that will speak for the majority of people who are routinely ignored by the capitalist system and for candidates who are organizers dedicated to building a movement.
