My work is informed through experiences with student organizing in Albuquerque, primarily with organizations like the SouthWest Organizing Project and the Center for Social Sustainable Systems. In Los Angeles, I sought to deepen my experience with political education and community organizing through my involvement with the Los Angeles Food Policy Council. From 2017-2020 I worked closely with LAFPC, first as a Food Policy Intern, then as a Curriculum Consultant and Program Evaluator for the Food Leaders Lab.
From 2020-2022, I worked as project coordinator of the Nutritional Values campaign at an Albuquerque-based food justice organization called Three Sisters Kitchen. In 2021, we launched the Nutritional Values campaign with local restaurants and our partner organizations and were able to share our originally-created materials and stories to shift narratives about poverty in New Mexico.
