Courage California Endorses George Gascón For Los Angeles County District Attorney

California’s Largest Advocacy Organization Announces Early Endorsement Ahead of the 2024 General Election 

Los Angeles —  Courage California has announced the endorsement of Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón for re-election, five months ahead of the November 5, 2024, General Election in California. 

“Courage California is excited to endorse George Gascón for re-election as the progressive champion Los Angeles County needs and deserves,” said Irene Kao, Executive Director of Courage California. “Since day one, he has worked tirelessly to fulfill his promises of reform and accountability that earned the support of a majority of LA County voters. Courage California is confident George Gascón will continue to work directly with impacted and diverse communities and bring the power of the prosecutor to work for everyday people.” 

Courage California works with local and statewide partners to identify priority races and screens candidates based on their top issues, approach to passing progressive policies, and record of governance and leadership. 


Since 2020, District Attorney George Gascón has co-governed with the people of Los Angeles County, implementing policies that refocus public safety from punishment to accountability, from the powerful to the impacted. He has faced and defeated intense and well-funded opposition that opposes his community-driven approach which includes addressing worker exploitation, patient safety and privacy, and crime victim support. D.A. Gascón’s leadership aligns with the vision of equity and justice voters have demanded for years, and another term would help cement sustainable positive change in LA County.  

Courage California is dedicated to supporting and electing candidates who will actively champion our issues and communities, especially in the face of corporations and special interests and the inertia of a political system that doesn’t always serve our people well.
