I’m a Mexican immigrant, naturalized U.S. citizen. I come from a family of schoolteachers. My parents taught me to respect authority, serve my community, and value integrity. California legislators continue to propose laws limiting our options as parents and as taxpaying citizens. What has been happening in my state during the last few years is dangerous and harmful to children, families, and people of faith. I refuse to sit down and do nothing.

I am taking a leap of faith because young generations deserve better than what we are leaving behind for them.

Together We Will Make A Difference!
