César Chavez was a migrant farm worker from the age of 10 and co-founded the National Farm Workers Association in the 1960s. He spent his life fighting racial and economic discrimination against Chicano residents.
I am committed to honoring Chavez’s legacy by fighting the prejudice and hate that contributes to inequality in America. I will
- Champion legislation that empowers marginalized groups, such as LGBTQIA+, Native Americans, and people of color.
- Advance policies that allow students to attend school without fear
- Increase funding for small business creation, youth centers and programs, and other development in disadvantaged communities
- Strengthen voting rights and create fair voting districts.
I will also fight for worker’s rights, fair wages, pension benefits, and medical coverage. We must end racial and economic discrimination in America.
