I am a spoken word artist, socially conscious, social justice driven Latino male that seeks to create community through love, activism, and critical leadership. I grew up in Fontana, CA and have lived first hand the need for a more just and equitable society where everyone has the liberation from oppressive systems. I have worked with youth and youth leadership, communication, and identity development and seen the power that youth and the institutionally oppressed communities they come from, can do. I see the work that Bioneers does as a intersectional approach to addressing and creating solutions to a multiplicity of interwoven issues that affect communities of color like mine and beyond.
