Equality for all people is my

passion

 

 

I was born overseas and came to Los Angeles as an immigrant fleeing war. We had nothing at first, but because of the incredibly hard work of my parents, my sister and I spent our youth in progressively better conditions. It was their dedication to service that sparked mine. Like many immigrants we experienced our share of discrimination and racism, but also great compassion and generosity.

I have not had a long life, but I hope to. And in the short time I have been on this Earth I have endeavored to help people. I find there to be no greater mission in life than service. Service to my fellow woman and man and to the communities that support us all.

I love people.

I teach students about their rights and their freedoms - those that their ancestors fought for. The right to speak truth to power. The right to practice your faith without persecution. The right to live in safety, privacy and dignity.

I work with others to advise the government on civil rights issues - to ensure that our leaders don't abridge our freedoms in their legitimate quest for safety. I am not always successful.

I’ve started a legal clinic to bring legal care to those who needed it most. A non-profit student organization to mentor young adults. And soon a way for people all over the country to reclaim their rights as citizens through education and information.

I can’t do this alone. Join me. Together we can accomplish anything.
