Community Organizing

During my doctoral studies, I co-founded a peer mentorship program with my colleague Juan Miguel Arias in order to help graduate students in education navigate the hidden curriculum of academia.


I also collaborated with my colleague Kia Darling-Hammond to fund and organize ProjectQED, an initiative supporting community-building and solidarity for queer educators and allies. In this capacity, I planned a yearlong event series centering the perspectives of LGBTQ+/SGL people of color in education. Some of these events included:



Both of these efforts were initially funded through generous grants from the Dean's Collaborative Learning Fund at the Stanford Graduate School of Education. The peer mentorship program now receives institutionalized funding and continues to serve incoming students at Stanford.
