Ricky Ruiz is a democratic candidate for Oregon House District 50. He talked with Don Merrill about why the plight of Dreamers is one of his highest priorities, how the city of Gresham, despite a strong streak of racism among some of its citizens, is moving forward to deal with issues of inequity, and why the school to prison pipeline that has been shown to exist in Portland Public Schools is something he will work to dismantle if elected.
