Anahi is the Co-Director of Organizing at Unemployed Workers United (UWU). Anahi was born in Mexico raised in the Southside of Chicago. As an undocumented immigrant, Anahi understands the value of accessibility, language justice, immigrant, and worker rights. These have fueled her passion for running and designing culturally relevant organizing programs since a young age, both locally and nationally. She recently served as the Florida Spanish Distributed Organizing Manager for the Biden-Harris campaign, where she and her team ran the biggest Latino Distributed Program in campaign history.

Previously, Anahi was the National Latino Constituency Organizer for U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders in 2016 and 2020's Presidential Campaign. Anahi used her skills and passion for organizing around worker and immigrant rights issues and later joined the United Food & Commercial Workers Union (UFCW) as one of the lead National Union Organizers of the Making Change at Walmart Campaign. She organized workers at their workplace, uplifted their stories, and held Walmart accountable in more than 22 states across the country.

Anahi pursued her Bachelors of Science in Psychology and is most passionate about the intersection of immigration, labor, and environmental justice. She firmly believes that regardless of where you come from, all people should have access to clean air and clean water, and dignified work that provides a healthy quality of life. Anahi hopes that Congress one day provides permanent protection for all undocumented people and can visit her family in Mexico.
