Oscar De Los Santos
Arizona State House, District 11
Oscar De Los Santos was born to working-class immigrant parents. He’s dedicated his life and career to public service and progressive values. As a teacher at a low-income school in South Phoenix, he’s been on the frontlines of the fight for better-funded schools and better teacher pay. As head of public policy at the Association of Arizona Food Banks, he represented Arizona’s 1,200 food banks and food pantries in the Arizona Legislature and in Congress. He fought for state laws that promote economic justice—and won. He successfully led the fight to pass a bill that doubled the state’s cash assistance program for low-income families.
Most recently, he worked at the Arizona Democracy Resource Center, combatting Republican attacks on our democracy and our freedom to vote. Now, Oscar is running to represent LD 11 in the Arizona House of Representatives. He doesn’t take a dime of money from corporations or lobbyists, and he’s the only candidate in the race endorsed by Planned Parenthood, teachers, nurses, and unions.
