I am a first-generation Chicana living in occupied Coast Salish Territory, with ancestral roots in Michoacán, Mexico. I am passionate about the intersections of spatial justice, environmental justice, and ethnic studies education. In 2019 I launched Raíces Verdes, a podcast to archive, validate and share the experiences of Black, Indigenous, People of Color, in the environment.
