Let's share a little
I was born in Puebla which is at the center of Mexico and I now live in Rosarito, B.C.
I am a Migrant, indigenous Nahuatl.
My parents died when I was a child and due to that and violence I was experiencing within the family and in my workplace, I decided to come to the border in 2000.
I have been a day laborer (field worker), domestic worker, maquila (factory worker), and have worked in services. In one of the maquiladoras I worked for, I was on strike for 7 years on strike.
I have been an artisan since I was a child and 21 years ago I also decided to dedicate myself to the defense of labor rights with a gender perspective and founded the following two organizations:
The collective Ollin Calli, A.C.(Mexican non-profit) is a collective located in Tijuana, we provide tools that better develop our organizing efforts. Defend our rights to work and live with dignity, gender equity and to work in a clean, healthy and safe environment.
México Artesano B.C.,Civil Association composed mostly of single mothers living in Tijuana
Born in Chiapas
Arrived in Tijuana I met and worked in the Maquiladora industry.
She began a workers' strike which lasted 7 years
Left the maquila to dedicate myself to the defense of labor human rights with a gender perspective.
founded the Asociación Civil México Artesano
Founded the Civil Association Ollin Calli Tijuana
