Latino voters have started to read about Nanette Diaz Barragán’s personal biography and her background fighting for children and families. The most important thing for all voters to watch, especially people who reside in the towns of San Pedro, Carson and Wilmington, is Nanette Diaz Barragán’s history of fighting for families compared to Isadore Hall’s history of protecting special interests.
The daughter of immigrants, Nanette Diaz Barragán has been fighting for children and families since college. She’s helped immigrant families escape violence and fought to strengthen our community.
