Campaign Update #1
We’ve been getting our campaign team together, participating in candidate forums, standing up for our immigrant community, and supporting our neighbors in Southeast. All the work we’ve done up to this point has been grassroots, powered by the passion of our people. We are now accepting donations!
Paving Great Futures.
It is an inspiration to see the work being done in Southeast San Diego by folks like Armand King of Paving Great Futures. Had a ton of fun at the 6th Annual Four Corners of Life Celebration last Saturday.
Putting in the hours.
Our team putting in the hours on the weekend! These Kearny grads and Mesa students are game changers. Diego helps with research and our online presence, Jescel Leeh is our Volunteer Coordinator, and Reyna is our Outreach Coordinator. Reyna’s daughter Bella watches Netflix and reads about Pokemon, but she also reminds us why we’re doing this - for our youth.
I was invited to speak at a rally to end the detention of immigrant youth in concentration camps. It’s sad that we are a border town and although many activists, organizers and volunteers put in the work to support our immigrant community, other cities are taking direct action to confront the disgusting reality of these concentration camps, while we are largely silent. Appreciate Joaquin Vazquez for putting together this event on short notice and inviting me to share my family’s story.
Thank you for everyone who is a part of this journey with us! It’s an uphill battle running a grassroots campaign while working full-time and raising my daughter. I don’t have the privilege to take time off work, I don’t have friends or family with deep pockets or political connections, but none of that matters because what we’re doing is rooted in restoring POWER to PEOPLE. If you want to get involved, please send us an e-mail, reach out on social media, donate, or tell your friends about the only campaign in D7 that’s by us, for us.
