Rather than shill for any candidate (which is not my role), I make the case for YOUR voter participation which is why all the Presidential hopefuls who are announcing have to answer 4 questions. Please read, share, and heck, leave a comment here or on the blog. ¡Mil gracias!

The real triumph in the #DonaldTrump story will be if #Latino #voters show the same unity & discipline by registering and actually showing up on Election Day to cast ballots, therefore forcing political parties and candidates stances on issues that matter: #immigration #education #economy #jobs .

¡So, THIS happened-> in +The New York Times Magazine! NYT reporter Jodi Kantor interviewed me for a piece on Sonia Sotomayor but my quote never made it in. This is extra special because the topic is ‪#‎BlackLivesMatter‬. I've explored grassroots civic engagement and its effect on politics & the quest for equality + justice since my senior essay. #Latinos can and should weigh in on more than #immigration !
