With Harley Augustino stepping down as executive director of PUEBLO (People United for Economic Justice Building Leadership Through Organizing), Ana Rizo will take the organization’s reigns beginning August 7. The daughter of immigrants, Rizo was raised in Maywood, California, and graduated from UCSB in 2002. During college, she participated in efforts to mobilize voters, encourage youth to attend college, promote student solidarity with union campaigns, and secure tenant rights. She currently works for the National Farm Worker Ministry, where she helped win the first union contract covering agricultural guest workers from the North Carolina Growers Association. Augustino will remain on staff as PUEBLO’s fundraiser.
