Emily’s favorite quote – “Pay me in equity”- Beyonce
Emily Rivas is originally from Ceres, CA. She moved to Fresno to attend Fresno State as a first generation college student and never looked back. Emily holds a bachelors and masters degree in History, focusing on Central American history as well as the inequities faced by Latinos in California. Based on her history background and her upbringing, Emily has seen and experienced the complete dearth of resources available to communities of color. The majority of her work has focused on equity building, working with central valley youth, and sustainable change within the Fresno community.
Emily looks forward to implementing change that can be sustained and positively impacts the youth of Fresno!
