Hi/Hola I'm Carlos!
WHERE I COME FROM
I have lived an incredible life from being in the street gangs of Chicago to representing one of the biggest artist of Mexico, Juan Gabriel and concluding my professional life as an Activist in Dallas and founder of Activista Legal, a legal services corporation providing low cost legal services to the immigrant community.
I love my children and I love the community of which I have been a champion for. I raise my voice when no one else wants to do it and create positive social change by doing so. This speaks to the life of Carlos Quintanilla. You know who I am and what I have done.
WHY I'M RUNNING
I am running for Congress because I believe the residents of the 33rd Congressional District are in great need of someone who will be a great advocate for a better tomorrow for you and your family.
You know of my work and you know who I am. In the past I have worked non stop to help our immigrant families, renters, homeowners, children in schools with free breakfast and fighting for our Children's lives against Cheese Heroin.
Now is the time for me to work at the Federal level, so that I can help in a much larger capacity. I want to be your next Congressman.
Our community still has one of the highest unemployment rates in Texas and in the nation. A great number of individuals still are without affordable health care.
We have a growing drug epidemic that is being ignored and our children are becoming victims of drugs and dangerous addictions.
Our immigrant family members and friends continue to live with fear, with incertitude and without dignity and respect or appreciation for their great contributions, hard work and entrepreneurial spirit.
The time is now to change the trajectory of our community's future.
The time is now to vote Carlos Quintanilla for Congress!
