Representative Candelaria spoke candidly about how his latino roots influenced his interest in community activism and subsequent rise to political office in 2002. He also spoke about his work on legislation that allowed undocumented immigrants to apply for Connecticut Drivers License, and Connecticut's in-state tuition legislation in 2011 to allow students without legal documentation to pursue their educational dreams.
