Putting People First
Joaquín Vázquez is running for the U.S. House of Representatives to represent the people of California's 53rd Congressional District in 2020.
Joaquín was born and raised in San Diego, the son of undocumented working-class immigrant parents. As an experienced policy advisor and community organizer, Joaquín is ready to fight for bold policy change. He understands the needs and issues that affect District residents and is the best person to fight for everyone in our District so that we can ALL make it. Please see the About page for more about Joaquín.
Joaquín is putting people over profits and standing up against powerful corporate interests.
By taking zero corporate or corporate PAC campaign donations, Joaquín will work for the people, not for himself or special interest groups. Your support and donations are essential to growing our grassroots movement. Volunteer with us and together, let’s take this seat back for the people!
Joaquín is fighting for a fair economy with livable wages, equitable K-12 education, immigration reform, climate action, and Medicare for All.
Joaquín's top priorities also include tuition-free college, student loan forgiveness, criminal justice reform, affordable housing, gun reform, voter protections, and equal rights for women, the LGBTQIA+ community, and people of color. Please see the Issues pages for more on these.
Let's fight for the progressive representation we deserve and desperately need in CA-53. Vote Joaquín Vázquez for congress!
