San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro electrified the Charlotte audience during his keynote speech at the 2012 Democratic National Convention, reminding the audience that “The American dream is not a sprint, or even a marathon, but a relay!” Castro’s rise began in San Antonio, encouraged and inspired by his Mexican-American single mother, a political activist. Mayor Castro has prioritized creating economic and educational opportunities for his constituents, because he knows it can change the course of your life. Indeed, both Mayor Castro and his twin brother, Texas Congressman Joaquin Castro, went to Stanford University and Harvard Law School. Come hear from the man many say is a rising star of the Democratic Party.
