Favorite quote or scripture related to justice: 

St. John Paul II

Human persons are willed by God; they are imprinted with God's image. Their dignity does not come from the work they do, but from the persons they are.

(On the Hundredth Year [. . . Centesimus annus]. . . , no. 11)”


Blessed are the peacemakers, they will be called children of God. -Matthew 5:9  


Queremos unirnos al dolor de su familia y queremos ser la voz de los que no tienen voz para gritar contra tanto atropello contra los derechos humanos. Que se haga justicia, que no se queden tantos crímenes manchando a la patria, al ejército, que se reconozcan quiénes son los criminales y que se dé justa indemnización a las familias que queden desamparadas. - Blessed Oscar Romero, 1977

What called you to ACT?

Knowing I have a chance to make a change in my community, ACT gave me the tools to be and make that change.

Favorite Book: 

Too many to choose from.

Favorite thing about Sacramento: 

Sacramento is in the middle of everything. Only a short drive and we can have the coast, the mountains, the central valley and the Sierras. Besides, Sacramento is a big city with small town ideas.
