When war broke out and it became unsafe to remain, Ammar, his mother and brother returned to San Diego. Campa-Najjar worked as a deputy regional field director for Barack Obama's 2012 re-election campaign before joining the Obama administration as a White House official. He also worked for the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce as a communications and marketing director and for the U.S. Department of Labor as a public affairs officer.He is a staunch advocate for unions, for federal investment in apprenticeship jobs and for programs for small businesses owned by minorities, women, immigrants and veterans. Ammar’s experience in Gaza, where he witnessed war and poverty, emboldened him to become a strong supporter of peace and economic justice. His platform also includes Medicare for All, passing a clean Dream Act, investing in renewable energy, and overturning Citizens United.
