Blog: Representation Matters

I believe it is long overdue that our elected officials reflect the experiences and paths of those they represent across the spectrum, not just the homogenous power structure; therefore, I'm overwhelmingly ecstatic to see an increase in representation in positions of leadership and elected office, such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Julián Castro, Ilhan Omar and others. #RepresentationMatters

I had the great opportunity to meet with presidential candidate, Julián Castro, the other day in Reno. I really like him, his story, and his proposed policies. Castro's People First policy agenda is spot-on with what we need to move the country forward in making impactful change for everyone, and making comprehensive reform to the Systems in dire need of them.

Congresswoman AOC and the other, newly elected POC leaders in Washington, and at the local level throughout our nation, are b@d@ss: they are fighting for and making real change for the People happen. 🙌🏽
