Henry Perez is our new Executive Director

After an extensive succession planning process and intentional engagement of ICS members, staff, and allies, the InnerCity Struggle (ICS) Board of Directors has unanimously appointed Henry Perez as ICS’s next Executive Director.  

For the past 18 years, Henry has built multiracial coalitions regionally and statewide, overseen the growth of ICS’s powerful housing justice and electoral branches of work, and cultivated new initiatives that have developed hundreds of youth and adult leaders. Henry has strong roots in ICS and a deep understanding of the Eastside, and has vast experience with resident leadership development and civic mobilization. No leader is better prepared to step into this role than Henry.

Maria and Henry’s partnership has led to countless wins for the Eastside communities, including new schools, a historic A-G life Prep policy, and the Equity is Justice resolution, bringing millions of dollars to historically underfunded schools.
