California -- 44th District
Nanette Barragán was born and raised in California’s 44th district, the youngest of 11 children born to Mexican immigrants. She worked her way through college and law school, and dedicated her legal career to helping communities like her own, including service with the Los Angeles Legal Aid Foundation, the NAACP, and as a child advocate for low-income families seeking adoption.
As the first-ever Latina elected to the Hermosa Beach City Council, Barragán has prioritized bold progressives values, including leading the fight against oil drilling in Santa Monica Bay. She’s running for Congress to ensure that every student has access to a debt-free education, to expand Social Security and Medicare, and create a public option for every American to have access to quality health insurance.
