This is another talk from the Redford Center’s Art of Activism event at the Sundance Kabuki Cinema in San Francisco on November 11th.
- Vimeo Description:
“Two exceptional young Bay Area leaders, Ellen Choy and Esperanza Tervalon-Daumont, joined Executive Director Lee Bycel and Mayor Cory Booker on November 11 to discuss the inspiration and drive behind the remarkable social and environmental work they do locally.”
“Esperanza Tervalon-Daumont is executive director of Oakland Rising, an up-and-coming, non-partisan electoral force that recently contacted more than 17,000 Oakland residents to encourage them to participate in the U.S. Census. Through her work on a national level—as a Hurricane Katrina housing community organizer and a campaign field director, among other roles—and on a local level, she demonstrates her commitment to sustainable solutions to social issues such as affordable housing, quality education, and living wage job opportunities for youth and adults.”
