Alton knows that public education, particularly our community colleges, opens doors. Pasadena City College played a key role in his family’s immigrant story, providing opportunities for both his parents when they came to America. Alton was educated in Arcadia’s local public schools, and is running for the Pasadena City College Board of Trustees to ensure that these doors can continue to be opened for future students and families as they were opened for him and his family. As an organizer, he drove record voter turnout among Asian American communities in California and across the nation to increase our political representation. As a policy advisor, he worked to ensure that all immigrants have the opportunity to succeed in America. Today, he advocates for expanding voting rights and fairer representation to guarantee that all Americans can access their right to vote. And as a Trustee, Alton will pioneer a new vision for PCC that builds the college into one that is ready for our stronger future.
