Veronica Escobar is an activist, a community leader, and an El Paso county judge since 2010. She is inspired by the Latinx community in El Paso, and, as the first Latina member of Congress from Texas, would be a voice to promote jobs and the economies of border communities. Escobar has focused her campaign on universal health care and education, shattering the glass ceiling, and standing up to the Trump Administration’s treatment of Latinx communities. She is running to succeed Congressman Beto O’Rourke.
“As an activist and a community leader, I have long been on the front lines of combating hate, standing up against injustice and fighting for a just and equitable society. If elected to Congress, I will continue to fight for the civil and human rights of all people living within our borders.”
