Paula Orrego, Speak Up, Stand Up: Becoming a Changemaker

“I am Paula Orrego, and I have been a social justice activist since 2011. I will be holding an event for my Bay Area community called “Speak Up, Stand Up: Becoming a Changemaker” at Foothill College in Los Altos Hills, California. I will have five speakers from different activist organizations, including an anti-bullying organization and a mental health awareness advocacy group, educate us about relevant issues in our area and nationwide and provide us with concrete actions we can take to make a difference. I started this project because I want to motivate members of my community to become involved in these important issues and maybe become activists themselves.”
