Join our Historic People-Powered Movement
Bryant Odega is running for LA City Council District 15 Watts, Harbor Gateway, Harbor City, Wilmington, and San Pedro to build a city that works for all of us.
If elected, Bryant would be the first Person of Color to represent us in District 15’s nearly 100 year history.
My name is Bryant Odega. I am a Public School Teacher, an Environmental Justice Activist, Community Organizer, and Working-Class Angeleno.
I have lived in District 15 my whole life and know what it feels like to struggle in a system that works for the powerful and privileged few, but leaves the rest of us behind.
Becoming the first in my family to graduate from college, I earned a BA in Political Science and Labor Studies from UCLA. As a leader in the Sunrise Movement, I have fought to end neighborhood oil drilling and create high-paying green union jobs. As a Board Member on the Harbor Gateway South Neighborhood Council, we provided tangible relief with COVID-19 funds for our community. As a Teacher in LAUSD, where I work to help struggling students succeed. But the problems we face as a community go beyond what any teacher can fix in the classroom.
We have seen the pollution get worse, rents skyrocket, homelessness multiply, and job opportunities decrease. District 15 has the potential for much more; it includes a rich history, culture, and our city’s economic engine, the Port of LA. We can be a model for the rest of the city. Let’s join together to build a sustainable and livable Los Angeles for us all.
