Vote February 22nd – March 3rd 2020
Having served the Watts community as a teacher-leader in a public high school, I have been privileged to be in the midst of the power of this unique, resilient and talented community. I have also been exposed to the many challenges my students and their families face. As I began expanding my community work outside of the school community, I have been heartbroken to learn that the needs of this brave community and district (one of the poorest in California) are not met by our current State representative. To ensure that the families of this district may fulfill their highest potential, I realized that I need to step up my fight and leave the classroom to become their fiercest advocate in Sacramento.
Join me in the fight for fairness
What will it take to end systemic racism in our district?
Let’s call it like it is: District 64 is experiencing environmental racism. Clean air, clean water and clean food are basic human rights, and I won’t back down from this fight until we have achieved each of these priorities.
We are at a moral crisis. The rate of homelessness in Los Angeles has reached a ludicrous level, causing 198 people to die last year alone. Gentrification is happening in communities all around us. Enough is enough.
Public education should be the great equalizer. However, the primary school education system has not supported our low income Latinx and black students. I will advocate for increased public education funding and free & universal pre-K.
No one should go into debt to get an education. This is why I will fight for making all public colleges tuition free. I understand the positive impacts that comes from investing in public education instead of prisons and incarceration.
Help me fight!
We are running a grassroots campaign. We are not taking any corporate PAC money. As a candidate, I only want to be beholden to one group- the people of my district.
This is why I need your help. There are many forces that don’t want to see systemic racism end and they will spend every dime they have to keep me from winning this race. Any amount of donation will help us fund a campaign that will win and fight FOR YOU!
