 Our Mission

We stand in solidarity with our partners, children and fellow residents for the protection of our rights, safety, health, and families - recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our democracy.

Ridgecrest United stands together in this belief: all humans have certain rights. We unite as a peaceful, grassroots organization to promote the well-being for all humans regardless of gender identity, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, race, age, ability, or birthplace.


We reside in California's 23rd Congressional District, in the 34th California State Assembly District, and in the 15th California State Senate District. One of our goals is to have our progressive voices heard by our Representative at the State and U.S. Congress. The ultimate goal is to make our community and our beloved country a better place to live for all of us.


Visit the "Our Representatives" page on this site for contact information for our State and Congressional leaders.
