Jessica sits down with Tomas Evangelista - a Dreamer and founder of California Dreamers, an incredible advocacy group for DACA recipients and the 800,000 Dreamers across the country. Tomas was brought to the United States when he was 2 years old to escape poverty and violence in Mexico. It wasn't until he was a teenager that Tomas discovered he was undocumented.
Tomas is a proud resident of our community in California's 4th district. He now works in Placer County with a non-profit organization that assists the homeless and those struggling with mental health issues. In this episode, Tomas and Jessica talk about his story and what we must do to protect our Dreamers.
