As California’s first Latino Senator, I’m ready to keep on fighting for the people of California.
I am honored to serve as California’s next United States Senator. There’s a lot of work to be done and it’s going to take a lot of resources to make progress on the issues that are important. So before I ask for your support, let me explain a little bit about myself.
I’m the proud son of Mexican immigrants. I learned everything I know about work and opportunity from my parents. My father worked his way up from a dishwasher to head cook at a local diner with only an elementary school education, and my mother worked tirelessly as a housekeeper for affluent families.
I grew up in the San Fernando Valley and worked hard as a kid. I found refuge in books and baseball and eventually earned admission to MIT. And with all of this opportunity, I’ve fought every day to make life better for California families.
I got my start as a young activist, organizing my neighbors against crime and environmental racism. I was elected the youngest LA City Council President where I delivered after school programs to communities that had none. As a State Senator, I passed bills to fight climate change, expand educational opportunity and demand gun safety. And as California’s Secretary of State I stood up to Donald Trump’s attacks on immigrants and voting rights.
Now, as California’s first Latino Senator, I’m ready to keep on fighting for the people of California. Every Californian deserves to share the dream my parents believed in, and the best way we can do that now is by passing a bold, progressive agenda. That includes:
- Creating an effective vaccine distribution plan
- Getting our economy and jobs back on track
- Passing Medicare for All
- Enacting A Green New Deal
- Reforming our immigration system
This is just the start of what I hope we can achieve together and I’m ready to get to work. But in order to be successful, I need your help. We have just a few days left until our first fundraising deadline of the new year. And with time running out, I have to ask:
If you’ve stored your info with ActBlue, we’ll process your contribution instantly:
There’s so much to do, but I know we can do it together, with our families and our communities by our side. That’s how I’ve made progress since I was a kid, and I know that’s how we’ll continue to make progress as a state and as a nation.
Thank you for your support and stay tuned for more about what’s next, we are going to need you with us.
