¡Feliz Dia de La Revolución!

Orale Familia!

This blog is being created today for posts related to La Raza Unida and politics. Today being Dia de La Revolución seems like a perfect day to start this.

La Raza Unida exists, and I am a member of it, because people care. They care about what happens to them, to their families and their communities. Many even care about what happens to the whole planet. That's why the title "Nuestra Familia" was chosen.

Like a family you take action on your caring. We're all in this together so that action, that responsibility, is often political. It is often organizing, advocating, and building relationships.

That responsibility leads us to hold our collective - government and society - responsible as well. Responsible to protect everyone - our children, our neighbors, and those in need. That responsibility also requires us to provide the best opportunities for a fulfilling life. From education to health care, decent paying jobs to quality housing - we have a responsibility to help everyone thrive.

Have a wonderful day! Being generous usually makes people feel better about themselves so take time to share a smile, a handshake, or a hug with people today.
