As Youth Organizer and Educator at Common Ground High School, Urban Farm and Environmental Education Center - I supported and organized a student-led walkout on 9/20/18 for Nelson Pinos, an undocumented man taking sanctuary in United Methodist Church in New Haven for over 294 days. I organized with several student leads that their classmates inform the school and their parents where they would be and who they were supporting. I coordinated with CT-Transit that 85 CG students take the city bus down the action. I ordered over 100 lunches for the CG students, Nelson Pinos' family and other high school students participating in the action.
