It is with a lot of excitement and some sadness that I’m writing to let you all know that I will be transitioning out of my position as CURB’s Statewide Co-Coordinator at the end of May. I have had different roles as Organizer, Coordinator, and Staff Trainer in CURB for the past 4 ½ years. I am grateful to be part of this dynamic coalition of so many different opinions, experiences, and political frameworks but who all share the value/spirit of freedom emanating from our dreams and actions.
CURB is my political home. This home has been built upon the legacies of organizers like Rose Braz, Lisa Marie Alatorre, Debbie Reyes, Diana Block, Craig Gilmore, Ruthie Gilmore, Emily Harris and so many others. I feel grateful that the guidance of our most trusted movement leaders has been shared with me and led us into a state of growth for CURB. I could not have grown into the political thinker, organizer, and leader that I’ve become if it wasn’t for the years of struggle with my comrades, mentors, and opponents that pulled me into a greater understanding of myself and the world around me.
