As someone raised by migrant farm workers, I was up against all odds to become a United States Congressman.
My family lived in a small trailer in rural California. My brother and I shared a bed that in the daytime converted into a kitchen table.
But with the help of my family and my community I went to UCLA and eventually to Harvard Medical School.
I never would have succeeded without my community behind me and that is the reason I have dedicated my life to service. First as a doctor and now as a Congressman.
But just like I needed help then, I need your help now. So please, chip in to help me raise the $2,092 I need to save my Democratic Campaign by tonight >>
It isn’t easy to ask for help.
But without small dollar donations from people like you I will lose my seat to a Republican that will slash education and rip health care away from millions of Americans.
As someone who has lived the American dream that Republicans are dead set on destroying, I can’t let that happen. Please, make a contribution now >>
Republicans put tax cuts for the 1% above education and health care.
A kid without a strong public school to attend or adequate health care is being set up to fail. We have an obligation to fight for every single child in this country.
I’m asking you to please chip in just a single dollar to fight for the America that made my story possible. Chip in now >>
Sincerely hoping I can count on you.
