Erika Jimenez grew up in Boyle Heights and is alumni of InnerCity Struggle’s youth program and Roosevelt High School. Her involvement with United Students inspired her to complete a bachelor's degree at California State University, East Bay, and further develop her organizing skills with Students for Quality Education. Upon graduating, Erika returned to Boyle Heights and continued her efforts to make college more affordable through the College for All California campaign.
Erika’s organizing journey has led her back to Roosevelt High School where she is currently InnerCity Struggle’s Site Organizer. She is proud to serve as a mentor for young people as they begin to build their own political consciousness and develop their leadership skills to create the change they want to see in the world.
