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.

—Nehemiah 4:6

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?
