Evelyn Soria

Evelyn Soria is FVLC’s Youth Programs Manager. Evelyn has extensive experience as an educator and organizer working with young people at the intersections of anti-violence and transformative justice movements. A graduate of the SFSU Women & Gender studies graduate program, she oversees both gender-based violence programming at OUSD high schools, as well as the Relationship Abuse Prevention Program (RAPP), which develops youth as peer educators and organizers building healthy relationships and challenging interconnected forms of violence. A proponent of transterritorial organizing, dialogue, and relationship building, she is also connected with the Universidad de la Tierra (Oaxaca and California) and the Center for Convivial Research and Autonomy (CCRA), through which she explores questions of land, autonomy, and communal resistance. Ultimately, Evelyn seeks to anchor herself in deep commitments to transformative justice, reclaiming relations with land/community and dreaming of a world free from all forms of violence.
