It's Sepi's birthday just fourteen days before the March 5th election. Your support is more important than ever to make sure Sepi has the resources and momentum she needs to win on election day!

Whether you're a long time friend or a new supporter excited to help elect an incredible woman to West Hollywood City Council, this is a great opportunity to contribute to the campaign and have a good time while you're at it!

Come out for a fun night and support Sepi! She will be the first woman of color and second lesbian ever on the West Hollywood City Council and the first out LGBTQ+ Iranian-American elected to public office in the entire nation! Sepi has been endorsed by dozens of local leaders and organizations like the Stonewall Democratic Club, Equality California, and Congresswoman Katie Hill!

Ride share encouraged. Valet parking available for a fee.
