Luis Rodriguez, longtime antigang activist in the Chicano community has joined the Rocky Anderson ticket as the candidate for Vice-President.
“The search for a highly competent, dignified, principled running mate has been arduous,” Rocky stated. “Luis exceeds any expectations I had. He will inform, uplift, and motivate in this campaign, just as he does every day in his inspirational work.”
Luis Rodriguez is “co-founder of the Network for Revolutionary Change, trying to fill the gap of strategic and unified leadership among the poor, the pushed-out, the dismissed, and forgotten. He’s also co-founder of the nonprofit Tia Chucha’s Centro Cultural & Bookstore and its publishing wing, Tia Chucha Press, in the San Fernando Valley section of Los Angeles.”
Best known for his “bestselling 1993 memoir Always Running, La Vida Loca, Gang Days in L.A.” Rodriguez has written 15 books and had articles published in The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, The LA Weekly, The Nation, The Progressive and other periodicals.
Rocky Anderson notes that “Unlike most candidates for high public office, Luis brings with him a wealth of knowledge and real-life experience, inspirational personal growth, and proven commitment to social, economic, and environmental justice. Such justice is an essential element of a nation committed to equal opportunity, peace, and genuine freedom for all.”
