  • Toss up race - in 2022, the pro-environment candidate lost by just under 5% of the vote 
  • Flipping this seat will help win a pro-environmental majority in the House, making it easier to pass climate legislation at the federal level


Derek Tran is running to represent California’s 45th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. After his time in the military, Derek went to law school and later opened up his small business in Orange County and fight for immigrants, workers, survivors of sexual harassment, and consumers. He currently sits on the board of Consumers of Attorneys of California.

With Southern California facing some of the largest infrastructure and environmental challenges in the country, with poor air quality and road conditions, Derek was asked to serve on the Orange Traffic Commission to help address long range transportation and highway planning. In Congress, Derek will fight to bring infrastructure dollars back to Southern California in order to create clean energy jobs. That funding, investment in public transit, and job creation will directly fight climate change and help families spend less time stuck in traffic. Tran is endorsed by LCV Action Fund.
