Franccesca is a proven leader in our community. She has brought business, government, and nonprofits together to prioritize the things that make our community stronger, like access to health care, affordable housing for veterans, and ensuring at-risk youth complete high school. As a member of the legislature, she’ll put our community first by standing up to special interests.
As an immigrant from Peru and a first-generation college student, Franccesca understands that making our community stronger means bringing people from different backgrounds together in order to close the resource gap between government programs and the needs of our community. She’s a fierce advocate for access to affordable health care working with local nonprofits to ensure that cost is not a barrier to care. As an adjunct professor at Miami-Dade College, she knows that only 'teaching to the test' will not necessarily create the types of students that will lead Florida forward in the global economy. In Tallahassee, she’ll be a strong and effective champion for our communities, for our schools, and for access to affordable health care.
