I’ve seen the value of stepping up my whole life. Both of my parents were FBI agents for over 20 years. When you have people like that as your role models, loyalty, bravery, and integrity become your way of life.

Until now, my way of serving has been through working to understand our planet and how we can live with it, including the dangerous parts like volcanoes and earthquakes. I give back by helping educate the next generation of scientists: young women and men from all backgrounds who will be the innovators, educators, and conservationists of the future.

I was moved to step out of my work boots and into the race for Congress because people like Donald Trump and Steve Knight are threatening that future by destroying some of the most basic things we all agree are important. Education, scientific research, disaster preparedness, critical infrastructure, national parks, and wildlife are all under assault.

Our economy thrives when we invest in our people and our planet. Trump and Knight both deny the science of climate change, which impacts our economy, health and way of life. Their attacks on immigrant families, women’s rights and health care coverage are offensive and damaging to the most vulnerable people in our society.

Trump and Knight are failing to deal with important issues like cybersecurity, senior care, and disability justice that will only become more important in the years ahead. I’m working to win the job of representing the people I care about and the places I love, because everyone should have a bright today and a brilliant tomorrow.

March for our Lives

Hello Team Jess supporters,

Today is a powerful day. March for Our Lives is taking place across the country where the people are making their voices heard. Today we march. Change is here.

Everyone who knows Jess knows that every story, every stitch of information, everything she shares with others is consistent. She has described her experience as a high school student near Columbine and the impact it had on her. She has spoken in favor of gun reform long before the campaign. Her friends, her family, and her coworkers always mention how the words she uses on the campaign trail are the same words she has spoken to them in private. This is Jess. Jess is not afraid to speak truth to power.

Make a donation today and help us keep the campaign message going. We need to spread the message that it is time for change and that we have the power to demand the end to gun violence.

Watch as Jess speaks at a rally earlier today in the Antelope Valley as part of today's March for Our Lives: https://twitter.com/jessphoeni...

We've also updated the CrowdPac page with a video of Jess speaking about gun reform. We want to continue to speak out against gun violence and make our policy on gun reform a reality. Support the campaign and empower our message by donating today.


Thank you,

Carlos (Jess' husband)
