Originally from a working class immigrant family in Phoenix Arizona, Salma Rojas has always been drawn to issues at the intersection of immigration, race, class, and labor. In 2017, she moved to Los Angeles to study Urban and Environmental Policy at Occidental College, where she organized on-campus workers to combat exploitative work practices. Once she graduated in 2021, she started working as a tenant organizer at the Coalition for Economic Survival and transitioned into the Youth Organizer position at GWC in December 2022. She is honored and excited to work with youth and garment workers to continue instilling radical social change.
