The title, “Not Bad for a South Texas Boy”, comes from a note penned by Federico Peña’s college English professor. While first read as encouraging, it took years to understand the nuanced message of low expectations for one of the University of Texas’ few students of color. From modest beginnings in South Texas, through perseverance Peña would earn a law degree; fight for social justice as a civil rights attorney; serve as a Colorado Legislator and Denver’s Mayor; and become our nation’s Secretary of Transportation and Secretary of Energy.

Peña aims to inspire Americans who have lost faith in our country through his life’s challenges and his regained optimism for America. He provides guidance for our nation’s leaders with long-term strategies for the 21st Century.
Ultimately, he believes that if a boy from South Texas can make a difference…so can you.
