Erika is a queer immigrant, artist, and community organizer for immigrant rights in Philadelphia. After emigrating from Mexico at a young age, Erika remained undocumented until receiving her green card in 2013. As a result, Erika’s visual art pays homage to her culture and upbringing while simultaneously serving as a tool for social change. As a community organizer, she has spearheaded and facilitated local and national campaigns to demand rights for the immigrant community. Through both her public art and local activism, Erika continues to engage in current issues of human mobility with youth, policymakers, and the general populace.
