Joy Silver has deep experience in running businesses with a social justice angle: she has been the CEO of an LGBTQ senior community, and the chief strategy officer of Choices Women’s Medical Center.
She sought to parlay that expertise into government, running for state senate in California’s 28th District. She lost in the general election to incumbent Jeff Stone.
Silver’s experience providing and expanding healthcare to women her expertise in LGBTQ aging means she’ll remain outspoken on social justice issues in and beyond her community.
Status: Lost general election
