Hi everyone! My name is Michiko Soto, my pronouns are she, her, hers. I work as the co-manager for the Youth & Racial Justice department at Fathers & Families of San Joaquin. Our department provides direct service and advocacy for transitional-aged youth and their families while also organizing through local and statewide coalitions to end the school to prison pipeline. I am passionate about creating an education system that is equitable and nurturing for all students.
Random Fact: I am the first in my family to earn a Master’s degree! I wrote my thesis on media representations of Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria.
