¡Gracias mi gente!
Celebrating NAHREP familia, cultura, politics, and grassroots action

Qué onda mi gente?!
Just wanted to drop a quick hello to mi gente hermosa on Thanksgiving. I hope no one is burning the turkey yet and that the turkey is accompanied by tamales, pozole, arroz con gandules, pastelón or lechon. Hopefully there will be some good dancing after dinner and that you make yourselves heard over your loudest relative. (I don’t know about you, but our Thanksgiving dinner gets LOUD.)
Seriously though, there is so much to be thankful for on this Thanksgiving holiday. Personally, I almost teared up on my drive to my parents’ house this week. I spent last Thanksgiving and Christmas without my family due to COVID-19 precautions. But today, we’re all together. My baby niece and baby nephew (who are the cutest babies on the planet according to their proud Tía) are running around, my family is healthy, and most importantly, we are all together. It’s all I need in the world. Familia is so central to who we are as a community. It is why we do what we do, why we want to build generational wealth, and why we strive to be better people every single day.
All of you are my familia. It is why we at NAHREP National do what we do, why we wake up in the morning and strive to be better leaders of this organization. You give us a reason to fight. Your passion, love, and dedication are at the heart of our NAHREP familia. Thank you for your love and commitment to this organization. All of you are our greatest asset. Through thick and thin, let’s be there for one another. Because in the end, that is what familia does.
Los quiero muchísimo.
