Debunking Negative Myths & Stereotypes In Classrooms Across America

“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 boy who became a doctor. Our film about his life puts a human face on not only migrant farmworkers, but any who have been overlooked, marginalized or dismissed by today’s society. His example speaks to people of all ages and ethnicities. This includes the millions with a foster care background, or troubled/broken families where poverty, neglect, abuse and failure is the norm, to the kids who are the first in their family to aspire to enter college; the millions of inner city kids with little or no opportunity to escape the “hood” in order to make their lives better, and yes, the thousands of children out laboring today in the hot, dusty fields for low pay and little or no hope for advancement in life.” – Jesse GiftRAMON RISING PRODUCER, WRITER/DIRECTOR |  Breaking News Primetime Emmy Recipient & multiple Emmy nominee
