Having grown up poor, Ruben knows the power that education has to change lives and has worked in Congress to make sure all kids have the same transformative educational opportunities he did.

In Congress, Ruben has taken the lead in working to address the teacher shortage crisis in Arizona and across the country by introducing legislation to support both teachers and students. He’s also prioritized federal funding to support Arizona’s public schools and led the fight for universal full-day Kindergarten and access to affordable higher education for all students, including Dreamers.
