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
- “Dr. Resa’s story is one of the most important, timely and inspiring films about human potential audiences can see. Ramon puts a face on the migrant agricultural laborers working in America’s hot, dusty fields for low pay and with little or no hope for advancement in life. His example paves a way for any and all who’ve been dismissed, overlooked, or marginalized by our society. I passionately believe audience members of all ages, ethnicities, and backgrounds will walk away from watching RAMON RISING encouraged, energized 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
