Melissa Fazli has been an activist for the past three decades.  She circulated her first petition in 1986 against apartheid.  She canvassed in the early 90’s for Virginia Citizen Action on environmental and health care issues.  She has volunteered for many non-profits like the Red Cross and Second Harvest Food Bank.  She has volunteered and worked on many Presidential Campaigns like John Kerry where she flew to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida to insure voter protection.  For Barack Obama, she phone banked and ran his social media in North Orange County.  For Hillary Clinton, she fundraised and her son was part of a social media video called Trump Effect where he spoke about being bullied for being Muslim.

During the Great Recession of 2008, Melissa decided to further her education.  She attended Coastline Community College where she received an Associate’s Degree in Social and Behavioral Sciences and then transferred to California State University of Fullerton, where she continued her studies in politics and the media.  She graduated in 2012 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications with an emphasis on Radio, Television, and Film. 

In 2012, Melissa won Best Commentary award from CNN on a different view of the Border’s Bookstore closing in Brea.  She then started her own company called Dolphin 5 Productions, where she continues to advocate on political issues, educational needs, and human rights.

In just the past year, she finished a post graduate study program at the Religious Freedom Center at the Newseum Institute in Washington D.C. giving her the expertise in Human Rights, Religious Freedom, and the First Amendment.  For her Capstone Project, Melissa produced a documentary called God Amongst Presidents.  In it she narrates all 45 Presidents of the United States religious beliefs and how they managed in a nation of religious freedom.

Melissa practiced real estate in Orange County for over 12 years.  She negotiated multi-million dollar deals and was the number one Preferred Properties Realtor for Tarbell, Realtors in 2014. Additionally, she worked with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices before she decided to change her career to full time documentarian and Human Rights activist.

She is the current Executive Board representative for the California Democratic Party for Assembly District 55.  She lives in Yorba Linda with her husband Naveed of 20 years where they raise their three sons.

Melissa has been an activist, an organizer, a volunteer, and a scholar.  Now she looks forward to being a candidate to be the next Assemblywoman for State Assembly in District 55.
