Amy Aguilera became involved in social justice work after learning about HR4437, a discriminatory legislative bill aimed at California’s immigrant communities. Born and raised in Oxnard, CA to immigrant parents she saw the injustice this would bring to many families like her own. This led Amy to volunteer and later work with social justice groups that worked to better the lives of Latin@ immigrant families.
Today, Amy works as a Civic Engagement Organizer with PODER. Her focus is on community education around immigrant rights and advocacy on language justice for monolingual Spanish speakers.
