What is an ADEM Delegate?
An ADEM delegate is a California Democratic Party Democratic State Central Committee (DSCC) delegate elected through an Assembly Delegate Election Meeting (ADEM) held every two years. From each Assembly District, seven women and seven men are elected. In total, ADEM delegates make up about 35% of all DSCC delegates.
Why Does it Matter?
The California Democratic Party makes several decisions that help shape the State Legislature, party platform, and party leadership makeup. A key function of the DSCC is to endorse candidates for the State Senate and State Assembly. By organizing and electing SEIU representatives as ADEM delegates, we strengthen our ability to ensure the California Democratic Party is endorsing candidates who share our values and fight for working people.
