I am a board member and the treasurer of the Coalition for Spiritual and Public Leadership.  I have been a co-leader of the Immigration Committee of CSPL since its founding in 2017. In addition, I have volunteered at Penn Elementary School in North Lawndale neighborhood of Chicago. I helped in the classroom of third and fourth graders several times a week, and I also serve as a member of the Parent Advisory Council (PAC) and serve as the PAC secretary. Since I began spending time at Penn, I've been involved in a number of initiatives at the school.  The two biggest achievements are the securing of funding for the rebuilding of a dilapidated and unsanitary restroom in the basement and funding for a new play area.  We in the PAC, with student leaders, convince CPS to give $1.55 M of funding to make these repairs. Now, CSPL, Penn Elementary, The Society of St. Vincent DePaul, and other Chicago organizations are joining together to help rebuild the North Lawndale neighborhood by creating cooperative businesses that will give livelihoods to families in the neighborhood.
