David Oster is an advocate for people with disabilities. He is a program coordinator for his local chapter of People First of California, South Bay and Harbor Area. He is the director of the non-profit People First Foundation.

David, who has autism, was a plaintiff in a class action lawsuit involving cuts to IHSS and helped pass California’s self-determination law. He believes all people should be able to choose the services they receive, rather than a service coordinator choosing for them. David has served on the DRC board since 2011, an experience he describes as “awesome!”

David is a native of Southern California and lives in Torrance.
