Inspiring 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

Debunking Negative Myths & Stereotypes

“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

Celebrating The Indomitable Human Spirit

“Ramon Resa, MD is an abandoned boy who became a doctor. Our film about his life puts a face on migrant farmworkers out laboring today in the hot, dusty fields for low pay with little or no hope for advancement in life, but it doesn’t stop there. His story also speaks to everyone who’ve been dismissed, overlooked, or marginalized by our society. Dr. Resa is an example to the millions with a foster care background, to those who come from troubled/broken families where poverty, neglect, abuse and failure is the norm, and to inner city families with little or no opportunity to escape the “hood” in order to make their lives better. 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 GiftRAMON RISING PRODUCER, WRITER/DIRECTOR |  Breaking News Primetime Emmy Recipient & multiple Emmy nominee
