“My boys are growing up understanding what it means to be a Chicano. They are growing up understanding what it means to be an organizer; a social justice practitioner as opposed to an activist. It’s more like…it’s a way of being. But they are also going through some struggles. As privileged kids whose father is in the community and who is perhaps seen as someone who’s trying to make social change, they struggle because they’re not being taught to fight back per say with their fists. They’re being taught to fight back with a pen. For example: they are taught to speak up when there is an injustice and they are taught to be peace makers.”
