Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Educación: Creo firmemente que la educación es el elemento igualador número uno de nuestra sociedad. Necesitamos trabajar juntos para encontrar formas de hacer que el cuidado infantil sea accesible, las universidades más asequibles e invertir en prog
  • Economía: El Distrito 44 de California tiene un ingreso medio de alrededor de $44 mil. Muchas familias tienen dificultades para poner alimentos en la mesa. Trabajaré para crear empleos respetables y de buena paga a mi distrito.
  • Medio ambiente: El Distrito 44 es uno de los más densamente contaminados de California, los niños caminan con inhaladores colgados del cuello debido a que la calidad del aire es muy deficiente. Lo veo como una crisis de salud pública e injusticia med

Biografía

As the youngest of eleven kids raised by parents who immigrated to this country from Mexico, she knows that you have to fight for those things.

Nanette grew up in Carson and the surrounding areas where she attended Stephen M. White Middle School, learned to swim at Carson Pool, and studied at the Carson Library. In a district where the median income is $44,000, only 60% of students graduate from high school, and only 10% graduate from college, she beat the odds and put herself through UCLA and USC Law School.

Nanette worked in Washington at the White House for President Clinton and at the NAACP, where she focused on social justice issues and researched racial health disparities. Most recently she was a leader in the successful fight against Measure O, a ballot measure that would have allowed oil companies to drill in the Santa Monica Bay. She served as the first Latina ever elected to the Hermosa Beach City Council. Nanette lives in San Pedro and currently works with one of Los Angeles’s largest and most prominent children’s advocacy organizations to provide free legal services to children in foster care who have special education needs.

In Congress, Nanette will fight for working people. That means protecting American jobs, bringing more good-paying jobs with benefits to our community, raising the minimum wage, and guaranteeing equal pay for equal work.

Filosofía política

I'm running because I beat the odds here in the district -- the district where I grew up, where my family resides, and where people need a voice the most -- I want to make sure children here today can achieve the same American Dream that I achieved.

I believe that regardless of age, income, zip code, ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation, we all want the same things: the opportunity to find a good-paying job, access to great schools, and safe, healthy communities where you can raise a family.

The 44th district deserves a fighter who is committed to serving the interests of the people who live here. Frankly, we already have enough people in Congress who put big business, big oil and big polluters ahead of the people they’re supposed to represent. We don’t need more of them.

In Congress, I will fight for working people. That means protecting American jobs, bringing more good-paying jobs with benefits to our community, raising the minimum wage, guaranteeing equal pay for equal work, protecting social security, making college more affordable and addressing the inequalities in school discipline that impact communities of color the most that creates the school-to-prison pipeline. And, unlike my opponent, I will put people ahead of profits and I won’t accept campaign contributions from special interests like big oil, payday lenders, or tobacco.
