Tonia's long road to Philadelphia and the DNC2016!
Organized by: Tonia Uranga
As a woman of color and an active advocate of social justice issues and a champion of women's rights, I want to be there when another first is made and we nominate our next president. I am not getting any younger and this is on my bucket list. Now is the time. I have been active in community and civic and activities all my life but just recently I decided to get involved in partisan politics, especially after the election of President Barack Obama. I have been active in my Assembly District and now I am prepared to go to my first Democratic National Convention as a delegate and represent my 47th Congressional District. The Democratic Party has taken great pains at ensuring diversity in the delegates however the cost is more than a barrier to most want to be delegates. I know with your help I can make it there. Help me make it to Philadelphia for convention week!
