From the 512 and the 956.
My name is Claudia Zapata. I’m the daughter of a teacher and a product of my familia. I was raised in the neighborhoods of South Austin and East Austin; the “rural country” of Kyle and the barrios of Mission, Texas.
The communities that raised me are commonly labeled as “vulnerable”, “poor”, and “minority” communities. Disrespectful terms for my communities. We are not vulnerable, we are not poor, and we are not the minority. We’re rich, cultural communities full of hard work and ingenuity.
The problem is that we’re not properly represented.
I’m here to change that. Join me on this gente-first campaign.
