Meet Jirair

'je-RAR ra-teh-VO-see-yan'

Democrat for California's 30th District

Dr. Jirair Ratevosian is a proud Armenian American from Los Angeles. He was born in Hollywood and grew up in Sunland, the son of Armenian and Lebanese immigrants. An experienced federal policy leader, public health doctor and progressive voice for change, Jirair has dedicated his life to helping others and spent his career bringing diverse communities together to solve big challenges.

Jirair was appointed by President Biden as the most senior Armenian American official at the State Department; served as legislative director to Congresswoman Barbara Lee; was a grassroots community organizer and activist; and worked in the private sector. A product of the school system in Los Angeles, he graduated from UCLA and has a doctoral degree in public health from Johns Hopkins.

Jirair is running for Congress because there is so much at stake to ensure everyone in our community has equal opportunities and a fair shot to chase their own dream. With unmatched federal and foreign policy experience, Jirair already knows how Washington works and what needs to change to help make Los Angeles better, more prosperous, and more equal. As the son of Armenian immigrants, and an openly gay public servant, Jirair brings needed representation and generational change to strengthen all communities across Los Angeles to ensure Congress is more reflective of our incredible diversity and responsive to the people of California-30.
