Blair Overstreet is a committed advocate for racial equity and the San Diego chapter lead of Showing Up for Racial Justice, an organization that focuses on educating and mobilizing white people to fight inequality. Blair has worked locally in multiracial coalitions on issues like police accountability, humane immigration practices, and affordable housing. She’s a City Heights resident and believes strongly in grassroots, community-based organizing and neighborhoods where people look out for each other and build community power. In Blair’s decade-long teaching career, she helped her students understand the systems of inequality in our world and empowered them to go out and change it. Now she’s getting into that work full time as a community organizer and political advocate and a life-long educator.
