LISA ROYER

CRIMINAL JUSTICE ORGANIZER

Lisa feels the most rewarding part of her work is amplifying the voices of those most impacted, listening to the stories of pain, trauma, and fear from her neighbors and offering them the opportunity to come together to seek change and to make their voices heard on issues that have affected them and their families. also by building real city, statewide, and national power to demand fundamental, systematic change. She believes that the strongest resistance to racialized capitalism comes when groups from all class and race backgrounds show up together in solidarity under the leadership of those most oppressed.
