Beca, believes that communities have the answers needed to dismantle system racism and oppression. She works daily to provide a platform for voices of community to be heard in order to shift the narrative for people of color. “ If we are able to shift power and influence to communities of color and create a pathway to leadership, then true transformation can begin.”   

“Once social change begins, it cannot be reversed. You cannot un-educate the person who has learned to read. You cannot humiliate the person who feels pride. You cannot oppress the people who are not afraid anymore.”

 –Cesar Chavez
