Rebecca is originally from the Midwest and has a Master’s degree in social work and community organizing. Rebecca’s experience living in Central and South America and her connection with neighbors and friends who are immigrants led her commitment to immigrant rights work. In Michigan, Rebecca served on the Steering Committee of the Michigan Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights and helped create a local interfaith sanctuary coalition in her community. She is excited to now join CARECEN SF and continue to work for justice in the Bay Area. In her free time, Rebecca enjoys hiking, traveling, and playing with her cat.
