Favorite quote or scripture related to justice:
So built we the wall; and all the wall was joined together unto the half thereof: for the people had a mind to work.
What does justice mean to you?
Justice is equality for everyone: where people are treated equally, and where opportunity to excel and live a happy life is equally proportioned among every culture and race.
What is the most powerful thing you have been a part of at ACT?
Being a part of the change of the system, being the voice of change and now being changed. A particularly powerful moment for me was traveling to Ferguson as a representative of ACT and PICO and marching for justice for Michael Brown.
Favorite thing about Sacramento:
My home, the diversity of Sacramento, and our push for continued development.
Who is your justice superhero?
