Bio: Hi y’all! I’m Yajaira, currently a second year double majoring in Sustainable Agriculture Food Systems & Chicanx Studies. Raised in Turlock, CA, I plan on focusing my career in the Central Valley in pursuit of working with agricultural laborers and other at-risk communities from an environmental justice perspective. I currently am working as the Policy and Advocacy Coordinator at the AB540 & Undocumented Student Center where I focus on the laws and policies affecting the undocumented community and advocating for their educational rights. As a senator I will work to improve this community’s experiences navigating UC Davis and higher education as well as bring awareness to the diversity of our underrepresented communities on campus.  Outside of school and ASUCD, I am part of Scholars Promoting Education and Awareness of Knowledge (SPEAK) and Environmental Justice for Underrepresented Communities (EJUC). Please don’t to hesitate to chat with me! <3
