After being recruited by anti-war activists, Ron Dellums served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1971 to 1988 on behalf of California's 9th District.

Although he ran as a Democrat, Dellums was for all intents and purposes the first socialist Member of Congress after the Second World War

During his congressional tenure, Dellum opposed every major military intervention, except for the humanitarian mission in Somalia in 1992. Just don't tell Rep. Ilhan Omar!
