Nathalie Hrizi — Peace and Freedom Party candidate for Insurance Commissioner

Nathalie Hrizi is a public school teacher in San Francisco, a union and social justice activist, and editor of the quarterly magazine Breaking the Chains: A Socialist Perspective on Women’s Liberation.Her campaign is calling for Healthcare for all! Abolish the insurance companies!


Ballot Access is Not Cheap!

California’s election regulations make it very difficult for independant and third party candidates to run for state office. For a candidate to even get access to the ballot they need to either gather 7,000 signatures within a short time frame, pay over $3,000 in fees, or a combination of the two.

This election cycle, the regulations changed. The allotted period of time for gathering petition signatures was moved up to mid-December from early January. Due to the difficulty of obtaining signatures during the holiday period when many people are busy and travelling, this change effectively shaved off two weeks of time for gathering the required signatures. In addition to that, about half of the signatures gathered typically get rejected due to other rules. This means that in order to get 7,000 valid signatures, the candidate and their team need about 14,000 people to sign a petition. While the Republican and Democratic candidates have no trouble filing the $3,126 fee for Insurance Commissioner in California, that is a lot of money for a working mother of two!

Volunteers are hitting the streets and gathering signatures for Nathalie Hrizi’s grassroots campaign, but with your help we can raise funds towards the filing fee and running an independent campaign calling for Healthcare for All!

Wow! In a week and a half we are just $73 dollars short of our goal. I want to thank everyone who contributed and everyone who shared. It is really great to see this kind of strong support not only for ballot access, but for a candidate who is running in the interest of her community and all of the people of California.

We will keep the page open until just before the filing fee needs to be submitted and we can keep accepting donations after the goal has been met.

Again, thank you all for your support.

It is great to see so much support for this campaign! Since this was launched less than two days ago, we have already met over half of the goal! Thank you so much for the donations and for sharing the link. The contributions provided here will go a really long way in supporting Nathalie for insurance commissioner and will save a lot of time for the volunteers working on the campaign. In that way your contributions are actually invaluable!
