Lynette attributes her voracious passion for culture and equity to her ancestors and to her padres. As a Mexicana born to “undocumented” parents in Los Angeles, California she witnessed how her parents struggled to raise her in the United States due to human rights disparities. Lynette is committed to addressing economic, cultural, and educational disparities by mobilizing families to fight for a higher quality of life and quality schools. To better help her community, Lynette earned a bachelors in Ethnics Studies with an emphasis in sociology.
For more than two years, Lynette has fearlessly and unapologetically challenged the status quo and organized across the Metro Denver area around housing, food justice and educations issues. Lynette joined Stand to continue working at a state and local level with parents and community leaders to give every child a fair chance in life.
