Rocío is a trusted community organizer and Latine leader in New Orleans. She is a mother of three who also loves to bake and cook. 

I emigrated from Honduras about a decade ago in search of new opportunities for my family and I. Being from the working class, I experienced labor rights issues. As a community organizer I have learned a lot about community and the importance of speaking out and making ourselves heard. I believe in the power that each person can exercise to create important changes, as each person is a leader from the position and role they perform. I believe in people’s ability to offer love, grow trust, and build community. ”
