Alma Diaz: Immigrant Rights in Cincinnati

Alma Diaz learned first-hand about injustice and inequality as a young girl working hard labor to support her younger siblings in ...
Mexico City, that is when she got involved with the punk rock community. This community gave her an outlet to speak out against the injustices and support women’s rights.

Since those days of screaming out against injustice in Mexico, she has worked on anti-wage theft campaigns as a member of the Cincinnati Interfaith Worker Center, as well as serving on the board of directors. As an immigrant she understands that is not enough to speak out, but it is necessary to organize her community. She is currently working on doing know your rights trainings in immigrant communities around Cincinnati.
