Resa Barillas

Adelanto Elementary School District Governing Board Member, Area 4, CA

Resa is an Adelanto parent, first generation Salvadoran-American, community organizer, former UFCW shop steward, and school site council president. Shortly after moving to Adelanto, she recognized that community members didn't come first - their voices and needs went unheard, unrepresented, and underserved. She became a youth organizer, then campaign worker for Bernie 2020 and Proposition 15, and now works for California Environmental Voters as a Regional Organizer.

She is running for AESD Trustee Area 4 because she believes Adelanto shouldn’t have to look outside of the public schools next door for a world class education, and that starts with public school board trustees invested in the success of our public schools. This starts with thriving wages for teachers and staff, attracting and retaining quality educators, and reducing classroom sizes so teachers and students can develop trust, rapport, and a supportive learning environment.
