The Center for WorkLife Law is pleased to welcome Rebeca Garcia as our Communications and Grants Manager. Rebeca will work closely with senior leadership to develop and execute WorkLife Law’s communication strategy and grant fundraising goals.
“I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the WorkLife Law team. When I worked on the Dar a Luz project as a graphic designer, I was so impressed with the work this organization does to provide legal resources for pregnant farmworkers. Now knowing the full scope of WorkLife Law’s advocacy and research, I look forward to amplifying the accomplishments of this amazing team.”
Prior to joining WorkLife Law, they worked as a communications specialist and workers’ rights policy advocate with the Central Coast Alliance United for a Sustainable Economy (CAUSE), a community organization advancing economic and social justice for working class and immigrant community members. During their time with CAUSE, Rebeca sharpened their writing skills for a variety of audiences, from indigenous farmworkers to grasstops advocates to county boards of supervisors. Rebeca also created graphics, produced accessible language, and managed the social media for Dar a Luz: Legal Rights for Farmworkers in Pregnancy and Postpartum, a collaborative initiative between WorkLife Law and CAUSE.
Rebeca graduated with a degree in Communication Studies from Westmont College, where they actively organized with their peers around matters of racial justice. Rebeca is a neurodivergent, non-binary Oaxacalifornian (which refers to their transnational identity), and these intersecting identities drive them to fight for a just community for all people.
