Students for Economic Justice 2019 Fellowship
Nick was born and raised in Northern California and moved to San Diego in 2006. After serving 10 years in the US Navy, he became a full-time student at San Diego City College and started working for the American Federation of Teachers Local 1931. As an AFT intern, he participated in labor strikes alongside Unite Here Local 30, worked with the San Diego & Imperial Counties Labor Council Environmental Caucus pushing for environmental responsibility in our community, as well as participated in numerous rallies and protests ranging from gun control to the rejection of a wall at our southern border. After college, he plans on being a community/union organizer right here in sunny San Diego as he places a high emphasis on workers’ rights and dignity for ALL working people and the disassembly of any institution that perpetuates economic injustice and racial or sexual orientation discrimination.
