Treva Reid is a community leader, advocate, and overcomer. As a senior field representative for then Assembly member (now State Senator) Nancy Skinner, Treva advocated for housing policies, gun violence prevention, job training programs, legislation for incarcerated and formerly-incarcerated individuals, and other critical efforts in support of her neighbors in East Oakland.  A lifelong Democrat, Treva serves as an Associate for Assembly District 18 on the Alameda County Democratic Central Committee and is an Emerge California Alumna. She is also a ministry leader at Shiloh Church in Oakland and engaged in numerous community partnerships.  Treva’s passion to serve stems from growing up in a large civically engaged family where her great-grandmother’s political activism informed their values. As a young single mother in college working multiple jobs, she leveraged strengths from her upbringing to provide for her daughter and graduate from Hampton University.  At City Hall she will work tirelessly to end gun violence, ensure housing stability, build affordable housing, and increase career opportunities for all Oaklanders.
