Political Activities: My political story begins with studying the Occupy Movement and then grassroots organizing for Bernie Sanders in 2016.Once arriving in Arizona, I saw the state of their public schools. This was due to Republicans' attempts over the years to destroy them. These conditions are what compelled me to get involved. In 2018, I co-founded the group Arizona Educators United and we helped lead a teacher strike that returned $400 million to the school's system. Following our strike, we worked with the Arizona Education Association to organize around “Invest in Education” a ballot initiative that taxed people making over $250,000 to fund schools. Political Activity Includes: Being a lead Organizer in Arizona's 2018 teacher strike Serving a Union President from 2018-2020 15% in raises over two years More Prep and Lunch time for teachers Organized for healthier breakfast options for students Fundraisers for our district's food bank Bernie Sanders 2016 and 2020 campaigns Grassroots “Super-volunteer”
