Experience

Biography

Ernesto has spent the past few years organizing in his community of South Central against injustices like police brutality, lack of education, and landlord abuses. In Compton and Westmont, Ernesto helped bring different organizations and families together to demand justice for Dijon Kizzee, Andrés Guardado, and Anthony Weber who were murdered by the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department. In Inglewood, Ernesto successfully helped organize a small group of parents from Warren Lane Elementary School to stop their school from being permanently shut down. In the Slauson area and other parts of South Central, Ernesto has worked alongside tenants and tenant organizations to document health and human rights abuses perpetrated by big landlords. Unlike career politicians, Ernesto has gained the experience to lead through his permanent contact with social movements and the working class community of South Central.
