My name is Nelly Irwin. I am a sophomore and am originally from Los Angeles, California. I am currently studying social and environmental justice issues, sustainability and education. I am interested in pursuing the Masters in Teaching program at Evergreen in the future. I am currently involved in the Black Student Union and the TESC Farm Worker Solidarity Collective. The BSU is a great outlet for me to discuss social justice issues and educate our community about what it means for us to be black. I joined the Farm Worker Solidarity Collective because I knew about the campus’ history with working with farm worker justice movements and I wanted to be part of the current action on campus.
Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions!
