I am a Mexican-American video and film producer living in Virgil Village within East Hollywood. As Tenant Representative, I believe that housing justice is among the most important issues that our community faces today. I hope to lead always with empathy, and find compassionate solutions to the problems our city faces. I would like to see more housing and services provided for our city’s unhoused, more equity and accessibility to transit, healthcare, and fair wages for all, and a transformation of our city’s public safety infrastructure to one that relies on non-violent and compassionate responses to crisis situations, rather than on more violent police enforcement. I’d like to address the effects of systemic oppression and inequality within our existing structures and build towards a more equitable and fair Los Angeles for all.
