Diana organizes members across Ulster County. She joined staff after working to establish our membership base in Kingston as a member-leader. Diana has lived in Kingston for 22 years, ever since her family emigrated from Oaxaca, Mexico. Diana was politicized by her experiences of racism, xenophobia, and misogyny as an undocumented girl and then DACA recipient growing up in the Hudson Valley. She got her formal start in organizing as a Community Health Promoter with Planned Parenthood, where she developed the fundamental skills of outreach and education. After attending one of our training series, Diana played a central role in expanding our membership in Kingston, facilitating regular meetings, and planning our Families Belong Together march — the biggest Kingston has ever seen, according to its Mayor. Diana believes in the power of the people and is excited to grow the organization’s membership and the movement for immigration, racial, and gender justice. Diana is a proud wife and mother to three beautiful children, who she hopes will continue to build on her work for justice.
