    Marcos Ruiz Rojas


    Communications Fellow

    Marcos Ruiz Rojas is currently an uprising Senior majoring in Public Affairs and double-minoring in African American Studies, and Chicanx and Central American Studies at UCLA. He was raised in the city of San Francisco since the age of four after immigrating from Lagos de Moreno, Jalisco, Mexico. The heartache his family and community have endured in dealing with US criminal and immigration institutions has motivated him to pursue educational and career interests based on resistance literature, advocacy, community organizing, and understanding social relationships to law.

    At UCLA he will also be the Co-President of Afro-Latinx Connection de UCLA that advocates for bridging the gap between the African diaspora and Latinx communities while educating folks on the Afro-Latinx existence. Since working with the flagship program of the Voting Rights Project as a Communications Intern, he will also be the Communications Fellow under LPPI for the following summer and Policy Fellow for the 2021-2022 academic school year. He hopes to continue being of service to his community and find ways to liberate the institutional barriers and oppression of our people.
