Vice President (Interim)
In 2009 my best friend passed away due to a preventable workplace accident that was worsened by the lack of health care. My experiences as a young, disenfranchised person of color had frustrated me to the point of action. I got involved in anything that could better people in my community, and through action I was able to learn that effective organizing and campaigning can create change. Through organizing, I experienced electoral victories in 2012 for Yes on Prop 30/No on 32 and successful statewide student-worker strikes in 2013. Understanding the possibilities within organizing, I promised myself to pursue a life of challenging social injustices as an Organizer. I have continued that promise first as an Union Organizer with SEIU 721 for 7 years and now as an Organizer/Trainer with SoCalCOSH supporting efforts to protect and empower workers in Southern California and throughout the state.
I carry my values around organizing working class people into my politics and believe our party must make drastic changes to meet the needs of the people. In the meantime I attempt to develop our membership and e-board in any means available so we can continue to grow and contribute to the movement before us.
