Estefany Garcia
Site Organizer 

Preferred Gender Pronouns: she, her, hers

 

Estefany joined InnerCity Struggle in 2016 as a Site Organizer and supports the leadership of young people at Mendez High School. She began organizing as a youth leader in her neighborhood of El Sereno when she was 13 years old, where some of her mentors were former InnerCity Struggle staff. Once at UCLA, she became a Project Coordinator and oversaw the political and community engagement of five high schools. She is humbled and honored to be able to give back to her Eastside community. In her spare time, Estefany plays son jarocho music with her friends and local neighbors where they create political verses on community conditions to inform and uplift each other.
