Tim Canova for Congress
For the first time in her lengthy political career, Debbie Wassermann Schultz has a challenger, and a formidable one at that. Law professor Tim Canova, who calls the 6-term congresswoman the "quintessential corporate machine politician", has raised more than half a million dollars in campaign contributions in just the first three months of 2016- from over 15,000 individual donations. This is a huge sum, particularly for a relative political newcomer. But this isn't just any political race - the outcome has nationally reaching implications, with the Huffington Post calling it "a test of whether progressive ideas or corporate money are more central to the Democratic Party’s future”.

Child Abuse Prevention Month
In 2013, over 1,500 children died from abuse and neglect in the U.S. Like years past, Amigos For Kids takes this time – the month of April - to honor the lives of children lost to child abuse and educate the community to help foster healthy and safe environments for our children, through their Blue Ribbon Week campaign. The organizations president, Rosa Maria Plasencia, discusses the importance of their focus of preventing child abuse over the last twenty five years.
