Program Manager, Youth Justice
As a fifth-generation Asian American, my family’s history includes exploitive Chinese railroad labor, the Chinese Exclusion Act and WW2 state-sponsored Japanese American discrimination. Today, Black, Brown, and Indigenous folx are persistently oppressed by similar systems of violence that my ancestors fought against. I continue this work because Social Justice is an 'all hands on deck' fight - if we aren't doing it together, we're doing it wrong.

Stacey earned her BS in Public Health Sciences with minors in biology and anthropology from Santa Clara University and wrote her capstone on Mass Incarceration as a Public Health Crisis. She is pursuing her Executive Master’s Degree in Health Administration with George Washington University to improve the reach and longevity of services provided by instrumental community providers in historically under-resourced areas.
