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.
