Brenda comes from a family of organizers who have worked on various political and issue campaigns. As a mother of three girls, she understands the daily struggles many mothers face. Layered into her life is the reality that one of her children faces challenges with an IEP and vision impairment. These struggles have given Brenda a greater sense of purpose and determination to build a bridge between families and the school district so children can reach their full potential. Brenda has been active with her children's School Organizing Team (SOT) for the past four years. She understands the desperate need for accessibility and transparency between the school board and families, and she wants to raise awareness of the importance for parents to be actively involved in their children’s school.
