Maria Evangelista for Judge


“I’m running for judge to ensure that our courts are in touch with the communities they serve and to provide equal treatment for all people who come before the courts.


I was born to undocumented parents who worked their lives as farmworkers and laborers and gave me an opportunity to grow up, become educated and serve my community.


I was raised and educated in San Francisco, was one of the first Chicanas to graduate from Vanderbilt Law School, and have served as a Public Defender to give those who can't afford an attorney equal access to justice. 




My commitment is to make sure our San Francisco courts are a place where everyone gets equal justice, regardless of their income, race, ethnic background or the language they speak.”
