Collective Justice

Isaura Jiménez Guerra| Facilitator

Isaura Jiménez Guerra (they/them/elle) is a queer Mexican-American non-binary femme born on occupied Tongva land; and has now lived and worked on the ancestral lands of the Duwamish for most of their life. They have experience working as a youth organizer and labor organizer. Most of their work has centered first generation and immigrant young people of color to increase access to material resources; whether through organizing, leadership development, or education. Their investment in this work is rooted in the belief that our relationships to ourselves, to each other, and to the land are all places where we are constantly and creatively practicing the skills we need in order to create a more just world. Isaura graduated from the University of Washington with a BA in American Ethnic Studies and Comparative History of Ideas, as well as a Masters in Education. They are always down to talk about nature, lifting, and where to find the best ice cream and fries.
