Youth Organizing Fellow

Mac is a queer non-binary person from Long Beach, California. Their pronouns are they/them. Mac started their organizing work in 2017 with GSA Network’s Southern California Youth Council. Alongside Long Beach youth, they led the ‘Long Beach Invest in Youth’ campaign and won $200,000 for the first Long Beach Youth Strategic Plan and the creation of an Office of Youth Development. Mac is a direct product of youth investment- they fight for their communities and make sure youth get the adequate and necessary care they deserve. Mac’s passion is working with Queer youth- reminding them of their voice and power that they hold inside themselves, and how they can use it to help shape powerful decisions. A few of Mac’s favorite things to do in their downtime are to perform poetry and rollerskate!
