Now she's running for Congress to stop President Trump's attacks on working families, women, and immigrants.

Despite struggling with poverty and homelessness, Candace earned a full-ride to college, becoming the first person in her family to graduate. None of this would have been possible without the support and stability she received from public schools. Candace ran for school board to protect the same opportunities that transformed her life. She served on the school board for the Carrollton-Farmers Branch Independent School District, where she fought to keep our children safe from gun violence, expanded STEM and vocational training, and stood up to harmful standardized testing In Congress, she will fight for common sense gun safety reforms like universal background checks,ensure every family has access to affordable healthcare, housing and education, defend a woman’s right to choose and stand up to efforts to break up immigrant families by pushing for comprehensive immigration reform.
