Ramon Resa, MD – His Story Inspires Students to Dare Dream of a Better Life
“At a time when social mobility is very much in doubt, Dr. Resa’s story reminds us that we all benefit when people can rise to their potential.” John J. Pitney Jr., RAMON RISING POLITICAL SCIENCE CONSULTANT | Roy P. Crocker Professor of American Politics at Claremont McKenna College
“Ramon’s story is really a human rights story. It’s about the right to have a quality education, the right to equality, the right to have access to the American Dream.” John K. Roth, RAMON RISING HUMAN RIGHTS CONSULTANT | Edward J. Sexton Professor Emeritus of Philosophy, Claremont McKenna College, Founding Director CMC’s Mgrublian Center for Human Rights
“Ramon Resa, MD is an abandoned Mexican American boy who became a pediatrician. Our film about Dr. Resa puts a face on migrant farmworkers laboring out in the hot, dusty fields for low pay, with little or no hope for advancement in life, but it doesn’t stop there. His example speaks to all who’ve been dismissed, overlooked, or marginalized by our society. Dr. Resa is a role model for the millions with a foster care background or who come from troubled/broken families where poverty, neglect, abuse and failure is the norm. I passionately believe audience members of all ages, ethnicities, and backgrounds will leave theaters after watching RAMON RISING encouraged, empowered and certain they too can change their lives, their communities and the world for the better.” – Jesse Gift, RAMON RISING PRODUCER, WRITER/DIRECTOR | Breaking News Primetime Emmy Recipient & multiple Emmy nominee
