Major/Minor: Sociology and History Double Major, Labor Studies Minor
I am extremely passionate about survivor validation and empowerment through survivor-centered advocacy, which CARE stresses heavily in their mission and work. I am a big proponent of education and programs that seek to address the structural, root causes of problems, so I am excited to lead that education and programming with the Peer Educator team. I'm also looking forward to working with an amazing team in an intersectional, trauma-informed space.
What Lea like to do outside of her work at CARE: "Outside of my work at CARE, I like to spend time in nature, like at the beach or on hikes, go to concerts, and explore different food spots in the Santa Barbara area. I am also a UCSB tour guide, so you may see me walking backwards throughout campus."
