Why did you join the campaign?
Passionate about civic engagement and empowering Americans, I joined Emanuel Pleitez's campaign for LA Mayor because he is the only candidate in the race to put the underprivileged community members first. I gravitate to his story because it's similar to my story. His experiences are my experiences. His struggles are my struggles. His success will hopefully be my success story as well. His candidacy opened my eyes to perspectives I never considered, breaking barriers as possibly being the first Salvadoran mayor in LA history. I am proud to be part of this campaign and inspired by the hard work it's done.
