Staff & Board

STAFF:

Jesus Holguin: Youth Leadership Director.

Jesus has been involved with the EJ League and since he was a sophomore in high school over 7 years ago, and also serves as board member of YPI: Youth Pride Inc. Jesus formerly worked as an Administrative Assistant at Juanita Sanchez Educational Complex After-school Program. Though he was originally born in Manhattan, he now resides in Providence, RI. He identifies as an Afro-Latino Queer Youth. Through community connections, he was introduced to Direct Action for Rights and Equality (DARE) shortly after his mother was incarcerated and deported on February 11th, 2010. As a result, he quickly became passionate about organizing and changing the community. Formerly, he was a youth organizer for the EJ League, where he created a youth program called ECO Youth, now in its fourth year of running. Because of his passion for justice, he was selected to attend the National Youth Organizer Training Institute with SOUL in California, and is also a member of a coalition called Right to the City. Recently, he was selected to be part of a national group called Beyond the November Movement, also known as Black Youth Project 100 (BYP100). His main areas of activism are around issues of environmental and food justice, LGBT rights, and immigration.
