Adele Cannon was a long-time Communist and Peace and Freedom activist. She was state treasurer of the Peace and Freedom Party for many years, and the P&F candidate for Congress against Henry Waxman in the 2006 election. Her husband, Oneil, (who is now in his 90s) ran Fidelity Letterpress for many years and provided cheap printing for movement publications. Together, they founded the Paul Robeson Center in South-Central L.A.
Their commitment and dedication to the struggle for justice and socialism made them fixtures on the Left in the Los Angeles area, and California, for many decades.
Adele passed away on August 12th, 2009 at 8:41 p.m.

Preamble to Our By-laws
The Peace and Freedom Party is an open, multi-tendency, movement-oriented socialist party. We are united in our common commitment to socialism, democracy, feminism and unionism and our common opposition to capitalism, imperialism, racism, sexism and elitism.
These by-laws do not define socialism, nor do they identify the strategies and tactics of how to achieve socialism. We agree that socialism is necessary and that it will open up a democratic decision-making process for appropriate use of resources and distribution of labor.
In California, voter registration is very important to political parties. The very existence of a political party as "ballot-qualified" is determined by the number of votes its statewide candidates receive or by the number of voters registered with the party. As the only feminist socialist political party on the California ballot, it is imperative that the Peace and Freedom Party continues as a qualified party. Quite simply, the Peace and Freedom Party will not be able to provide Californians with candidates that will represent us unless we register and vote Peace and Freedom.
