Students for Economic Justice 2011 Fellowship
Julio Cesar Rivera is a student at San Diego State University majoring in Political Science and Economics with a minor in Latin American Studies. A life-long resident of San Diego, he is committed to bettering the community. Seeing the plight of low-income people, particularly amongst communities of color, has given him the drive to make a difference. In early 2011, Julio began working with Feeding America through their SNAP Outreach program. Through that program, he worked across San Diego County assisting disadvantaged families apply for and receive food stamps. He plans on receiving his BA in 2012 and continuing to work on social justice issues on a wider scope.
