Richard Meza

Richard Meza was born and raised in San Diego and is currently a student at San Diego Mesa College. He looks forward to transferring to SDSU or UCSD soon. His major is psychology, and he wants to eventually pursue his master’s degree. He hopes to work as a counselor for our troubled youth. As a troubled youth himself, he came to know the reasons why kids join gangs and hopes to prevent them from taking a path that only leads to incarceration. Having been incarcerated himself, he witnessed the unjust treatment of prisoners and the unjust policies of private prisons in action, and how the government and these corporations profit from them. He’s an active member of San Diego City College’s “Urban Scholars Union,” a club that supports formerly incarcerated students, and is trying to start another branch at Mesa College. Richard looks forward to working with Students for Economic Justice, where he hopes to gain experience and knowledge that he will bring to the communities he was raised in to help those in need.
