Creencias poliza

Filosofía política

One of the tenets of my political philosophy is to empower our communities engaging in public policy, to run for office, and to improve socioeconomic quality of life through active participation in education.

 I’m an immigrant, as Naturalized US Citizen immigration reform is very important to preserve our nation of many legacy. Our country is strong, because its diversity and access to the “American Dream”.

Similarly, education and sustainable employment on information technology, renewable energy, and bio-research and development implemented in local colleges and universities offering certificates and academic degrees in these fields to create a strong economy.

A healthy community is a prosperous and safe community; affordable health care and health care for all should be a major tenet in our country. Stop pharma lobbying. Expanding and improving mental health care through a rigorous campaign to de-stigmatized and accessibility must be at the forefront at local and national discussion.

Lastly, I’d like to champion these issues working diligently for social justice, women reproductive rights, and home-first model to end homelessness.
