About Jessica Craven

Hi, there! I'm Jessica Craven--a full time activist, community organizer, and elected member of the Los Angeles County Democratic party’s Central Committee.

I'm also the author of "Chop Wood, Carry Water," a daily actions e-mail that’s been published five days a week since November of 2016, and the creator of a corresponding podcast by the same name.

More about me: I'm a member of CADEM's Progressive and Environmental Caucuses, a legislative co-lead for my chapter of Moms Demand Action, and a bird-dog of elected officials everywhere. I've knocked doors, phone-banked, fundraised, texted, and postcarded for hundreds of progressive candidates. I'm also a creator on TikTok with almost 100K followers, and the leader of an “Activism 101” workshop, which I offered for free to groups all over the country in the run-up to both the November 2020 and January 2021 elections.

My mission? Simple: to get regular folks more involved with politics on both a federal and local level. I work at this pretty much 7 days a week. Your sponsorship helps me plan ahead; knowing I have a secure income allows me to give as much time as needed to whatever fire is raging at the moment while simultaneously working on projects that sometimes take months or years to complete.

Most recently, for example, during the CA recall, I distributed 13,000 postcards from my porch, canvassed repeatedly, ran two weekly phonebanks, and made 5 TikToks that reached a combined 410K people explaining why the recall mattered and how they could help beat it. This, while simultaneously publishing my newsletter every day, the podcast once a week, and at least 6 TikToks a week encouraging and educating my followers about everything from climate policy to President Biden's infrastructure plan to the debt ceiling to the USPS. That's a typical month for me. It never stops. 😅

Your donations are literally critical to me. The more people who support me--even at $5 a month--the more serious I can be about my work and the farther my reach becomes.

So if you've read this far thank you. I would truly appreciate your help saving our democracy, one simple action at a time.

Thanks.

Jess
