"I'm running to ensure our Alameda County Democratic Central Committee prioritizes the real issues our community faces, from housing to sustainability, shaping a future that reflects our shared values."- Zac Bowling
Who am I?
For over a decade, I've been at the forefront of advocating for more equitable and sustainable housing solutions in the East Bay. As a leader in various housing organizations, including being a founder of East Bay YIMBY, I've fought tirelessly to make our communities more inclusive and affordable. My own experience with homelessness drives my advocacy.
I grew in a union household and my early involvement in the Alphabet Workers Union reflects my dedication to fairness and worker rights, emphasizing the need for transparency and equitable treatment in the workplace.
My commitment to social justice and housing reform was particularly evident in my work on the Measure Z campaign in Alameda, aimed at ending exclusionary zoning practices that restrict the availability of affordable housing. Through grassroots lobbying efforts in Sacramento, I've pushed for legislation that addresses the housing crisis directly, drawing from my own experiences with housing insecurity to inform and fuel my advocacy.
As a content creator on TikTok and YouTube, I've leveraged these platforms to educate and mobilize young people around these critical issues, ensuring that the next generation is engaged and informed about the challenges and opportunities we face. My candidacy for the ACDCC is driven by a desire to bring this experience, passion, and dedication to a broader platform, where I can continue to work towards a future that reflects our shared Democratic values and priorities.
