Roland is a Texas State Senator that fights for working families from San Antonio to Uvalde, and the Texas Border.

As a Texas State Senator, Roland has been a leading voice in the state’s capitol in preventing gun violence.

The son of Mexican immigrants, Roland has spent his whole life fighting to create real change for communities across Texas - from fixing infrastructure to fighting for stronger education.
