Amin David moved to California from Chihuahua, Mexico and became a U.S. Citizen. He is best known for founding Los Amigos
of Orange County as a result of struggles between the community and police in Anaheim. Los Amigos tackled issues on education,
civil rights, public safety, government transparency, and arts and culture. He served as president of Los Amigos until 2012
