Dream Beyond Bars Fellow
Emily is a self driven young brown woman who has worked as a youth organizer with Bay Peace. As a youth organizer she gained more knowledge about the youth criminal system and how much it impacted the black and brown people in her community. Growing up as a brown woman in Oakland she faced injustice in the criminal justice pipeline.
Emily desires to continue pursuing working with black and brown youth in the community and hopes to make a change.
Emily enjoys spending time with her three kids Sebastian, Kamilah and Jayleen. And spends her free time reading, journaling and volunteering at food banks and the SPCA.
