CAUCUS LEADERSHIP

Ray Bradford, Chair

    Ray comes from central and southern Illinois. He discovered activism in 1982 when he joined the Gay and Lesbian People’s Union at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. Leadership in the GLPU taught many lessons, one of which was to stand up and take your equality. After moving to Phoenix in 1990, Ray found a large urban community as well as other causes to support. Serving as a volunteer at 1-N-10 on and off from the mid-90’s through the mid-2000’s, and later, finding a place volunteering to serve our young homeless neighbors at Tumbleweed, Ray had discovered an abiding passion for protecting our youth and young adults. As a survivor of severe bullying in elementary school, Ray knows well how important it is to have positive role models and access to quality support. In late 2011, an organizer with Obama For America recruited Ray to volunteer with the campaign to re-elect President Obama, and he was immediately infected with the passion-for-politics bug.


     Since then, Ray has served in many positions within the Democratic Party; as a Precinct Committee Person for the Westward Ho Precinct, as a member of the State Committee of the Arizona Democratic Party, as Chair of Fundraising with the District 24 Democrats (LD24), and as an event organizer and fundraiser for the Maricopa County Democratic Party (MCDP), LD24, as well as various candidates, including working for the successful Campaign to Elect Adrian Fontes Maricopa County Recorder. Ray was elected to Chair the LGBT Caucus of the Arizona Democratic Party in January of 2017, and has recently accepted the position of Chair of the Committee of Access and Inclusion for MCDP to address issues of importance to Persons With Disabilities. Ray lives in downtown Phoenix with his two black cats and manages an optical shop for a popular national retailer.
