Biography

Joy Brown-Price is an active member of her community.  For many years, she has been involved in civic projects and committees to better serve the district.  She has been a member and Vice President of the Inglewood Police Oversight Commission; she has been an official Role Model for African-American Male Achievers Network, International Science and Discovery Learning Center; and she currently serves on the Board of the Urban Healthcare Project in Inglewood.

Ms. Brown-Price has been a long-time labor activist/leader.  As a member of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), she was an integral part of the team that, in 1983, brought the union to the Community Redevelopment Agency of Los Angeles (CRA/LA) where she worked for more than 30 years.  During that time, she served her local (AFSCME Local 585) in every Executive Board position from Trustee to President.  She also rose through the ranks to become Vice President and Political Chair of AFSCME District Council 36, which placed her on the AFSCME California Legislative Steering Committee.

After retiring from CRA/LA, Sister Brown-Price immediately went to work for AFSCME International representing California state employees.  She is now a member of AFSCME’s Retiree Chapter and continues to be a committed and active labor and community leader.

Ms. Brown-Price is a dedicated Democratic Party activist.  She is an involved member of several local Democratic clubs. For the last 10 years, she has been an Elected Member of the Central Committee of the Los Angeles County Democratic Party (LACDP) and a Delegate to the California Democratic Party’s State Central Committee.  As a Member of the County Central Committee, she served as Secretary, then Chair of her Assembly District Delegation and currently serves on the LACDP’s Labor and the Legislative Committees.  In 2012, she was honored by the LACDP her District’s Woman Democrat of the Year!

Ms. Brown-Price is a wife and mother who believes strongly in family participation.  Her husband, William Price, retired after 25 years with the CRA/LA as a Project Manager.  He is currently an economic development consultant and is active in politics.  They have two adult children who have each been involved in community efforts and politics from a very young age

Joy Brown-Price was honored to receive the Leadership Award presented by the Los Angeles County Deputy Probation Officers Union – Local 685.  She was also given the distinction of being named a “Shero” by then Assemblymember Curren D. Price at his first “Sheroes Tribute”.   Mr. Price, who is now the Los Angeles City Councilman for the “New 9th” District, says, in part, that a “Shero is a woman who inspires others through her own actions.  She has made a difference by giving a significant amount of her time through community service, community pride and/or community leadership for noteworthy improvements.”

 

Ms. Brown-Price has worked hard to promote the positive, progressive platform of the Democratic Party, to elect those who can and will deliver Democratic values, and to inspire others to share in this work.  “I would be deeply honored to continue these efforts as your representative on the County Central Committee,” she said, “and I respectfully ask for your vote.”
