Community Organizer, Lindsay
As the Community Organizer, Luisa oversees the Lindsay and Woodlake chapters. Her greatest passion is to share the knowledge she acquires to help those in need. Through her involvements in El Quinto Sol de America, PIQUE, Parenting classes, Peace, La Segunda Taza de Café, Parenting Network, Abriendo Puerta, School Site Council, DELAC, and CAPS, it is apparent that she has been able to share her passion with the community. Some of the efforts she has participated in are gathering signatures, encouraging the district to stop spraying Chlorpyrifos around schools, and helping organize the Women’s Conference of El Quinto Sol de America.
Luisa, a former Vecina Unida, witnessed first hand the educational inequalities children with special needs face. She felt the urgency to organize around the issue and help educate community members to advocate for those who are underrepresented. She also strives to promote education and health equity among schools in search of social justice.
As a mother, she encourages and supports her children’s dreams to pursue their goals. She also teaches them about the importance of the richness of the Mexican culture, heritage, and traditions.
