My name is Diana Barrera. I first got involved fighting for worker’s rights under the leadership of my undergrad professor James Walsh in Denver, Colorado. With his knowledge of history he ignited a flame of passion for worker’s rights in my soul and helped me find my raison d'etre.
My name is Gabriela López Compeán and I am a student at the University of Houston Law Center. I am from San Luis Potosí, México, and as an immigrant I am passionate about teaching our community about their rights and empowering them to have a lasting impact on our country.
Hey everybody! My name is Kirby Peterson and I just started my internship at Fe y Justicia in June. I'm really excited to have the opportunity to advocate for and work on behalf of such a crucial population in this country. Along with partnering with FJWC in an effort to achieve worker justice for all, I am also pursuing my Masters of Social Work from the University of Houston. For as long as I can remember, I have had a passion for developing relationships and serving individuals who feel ignored, forgotten, or outright rejected from others.
Fe y Justicia Worker Center is a safe space for low-wage workers to learn about their workplace rights and to organize to improve working conditions on the job. We build the collective power of low-wage workers in Houston in order to ensure a community in which all work is respected and all workers have a right to a healthy and sustainable job.
