Dulce’s story is not unlike many other immigrant stories across Los Angeles. She was born in Mexico and at a young age, her parents brought her to the U.S. for a chance at a better life. She spent her childhood cleaning mansions with her mother, a housekeeper, while her father worked in construction. She split the rest of her childhood between her studies and looking after her little brother—a responsibility many immigrant siblings share.
The struggles of her family, both the ones that migrated to the U.S., and her extended family that remains in Mexico, have shaped her worldview and fueled her passion to help others.
Dulce is running to fight for her community. She knows that we need liveable neighborhoods. We need to reimagine what public safety means. We need to bridge the gaps in education. But first, we need to have transparency in how decisions are made and root out special interests and corruption in City Hall.
