Andreya she/hers

Hello again everyone!

I’m Andreya,my pronouns are she/hers. I’m a long time civil rights activist, and organizer involved in law and policy at San Bernardino Free Them All, From Gangs To Glory, and Root & Rebound. I am part of the Reimagine LA/JusticeLA/Care First CA/Stop The Musick Coalition. I am on the immigration and housing committees at the National Lawyers Guild. Some of my recent work is around state and local pretrial reform, budget advocacy, removing sentencing enhancements, recalling sentences under PC 1170(d)
#DefundThePolice #FreeThemAll movements. My organizations provide free services such as Cannabis conviction relief, expungements, peer to peer counseling, gang prevention/intervention, transitional housing, mutual aid, employment referrals, and more. I work with injustice involved and formerly incarcerated individuals, families, the currently incarcerated, immigration, and houseless communities.

We are committed to seeing out the closure of Mens Central Jail, and simultaneously pushing back on the expansion of the Musick jail in Orange County. If you are interested in getting involved, or can support on social media, let’s connect.

A random fact about me? My team (and friend) ran for Congress 2020 here in Los Angeles. I led an organic, grass roots campaign with my peers… the candidate, myself, and another staff member being formerly incarcerated. We went heads up against the establishment, a career politician. We didn’t win, though it was an awesome experience!
