As a lifelong activist and organizer, I hope to bring radical change to the Democratic Party. I currently serve as the National Co-Chair for Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) Immigrants’ Rights Committee and the Co-Chair of the DSA Los Angeles Immigration Justice Committee. I am currently a lead organizer in the campaign to Abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency and an organizer with the ICE Out of LA Coalition. As a student in Philadelphia, I was heavily involved in the Pennsylvania Democratic Party where I worked closely with undocumented students organizing for the DREAM Act and became active in the Occupy Wall Street movement.

The California Democratic Party has the potential to be a truly progressive political force to move our state and country forward. If elected as an Assembly District Delegate for the 43rd District, I will seek to build progressive coalitions within the party that fight for more transparent, egalitarian, and democratic rules for decision-making. I will fight to advance a working-class oriented agenda that prioritizes Universal Rent Control, Medicare for All, and A Green New Deal. As an Immigrants’ Rights activist, I will be an outspoken advocate to Abolish ICE. America needs a bold progressive agenda, and California can deliver. There’s no time to wait.[9]
