Hi, I’m Ben. I grew up here in the Sacramento area where I was deeply involved in my community through organizations like the Boy Scouts of America and student government. I’ve always been an idealist and I believe that every human being deserves dignity and respect. I’m running for the United States House of Representatives not to protect special interests and implement gradual change, but to drastically change the way our government handles issues like human rights, climate change, and participation in our democracy. I’m here to change the world, and I need your help.
