Hopefully you’ve heard of “Team Awesome.” If you haven’t, let me tell you about these young men and women. “Team Awesome” is a huge group of folks that will benefit from the Dream Act. These are young adults that were brought to the US when they were very young. They went to school here and studied hard. They would like to go to college or get jobs, but they do not have legal status.
These young people got organized in 2011 to help elect Danny Valenzuela to the Phoenix City Council. They knocked on doors and talked to voters and decided that they would work to make change happen. After the election, their story was told in Time Magazine and on NPR. They are widely credited with increasing Latino voter participation in Danny’s district by 500%!
We are honored to have their support and we are proud to work with Team Awesome to defeat Joe Arpaio.
Statement from Team Awesome:
“We have endorsed Paul Penzone because he is the RIGHT candidate but most importantly, the RIGHT person for Arizona. We chose sides because Paul is a man of values, character and with a heart/love for the work he does and all the people he represents. And simply because our commUNITY deserves better.”
