Growing up in a home of domestic violence and alcoholism meant that there were many nights where I had to hide under the bed.

My mother was someone who tried to shield us from what was a very painful early childhood. And I think that in some ways that’s always been a motivation for me — to stand up, to speak out.

This was a tough story to tell because as a child, I couldn’t always fight to defend my mother. But learning from those experiences, with your support, I can fight for every Californian.
