Outreach Specialist, RePower LA
Andrea is the Outreach Specialist for the RePower LA campaign. She received her bachelors degree in Political Science from Cal State Long Beach, which is where she also potentialized her desire for intersectional social justice. She was introduced to LAANE in 2016 when she worked as a community organizing intern for two years with the hospitality campaign, working to protect the livelihoods of vulnerable hotel housekeepers. She also served as a youth facilitator for the California Conference for Justice and Equality for two years where she taught racial and gender justice to high school students. Her experience in the service industry and as an educator taught her the invaluable significance of people power and grassroots connections, which has inspired her in her current work as outreach specialist in our LA communities. In her time off she loves to move her body through yoga and rock climbing, to read, and to pass time with her chosen family.
