"Growing up in an community that is under-served I understand the struggles of marginalized communities. As a youth organizer and activist, I find it my duty to fight for the rights of every under-served child, and marginalized communities. I have led many demonstrations, including #ENOUGH walkouts all across New York, and the 2018 Youth Over Guns March over the Brooklyn Bridge. Throughout my activism I have campaigned for criminal justice reform, bail reform, gun control, and for an end to the school-to-prison pipeline. At just 14 years-old, after being personally impacted by the criminal justice system and advocating for my brother, Pedro Hernandez's, freedom - I got involved in this work through Justice League NYC. As my bother because a cause celebre for bail reform, I went on to become a champion for justice reform, and gun violence prevention."
