Anahi Tapia Torres

Anahi is the Director of Field Organizing at Unemployed Workers United (UWU). Anahi was born in Mexico and raised in the Southside of Chicago. As an undocumented immigrant, Anahi understands the value of accessibility, language justice, and immigrant and worker rights. These have fueled her passion for running and designing culturally relevant organizing programs since a young age, locally and nationally. She recently served as the Florida Spanish Distributed Organizing Manager for the 2020 Florida Democratic Bidenn-Harris Coordinated Campaign. 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 the 2016 and 2020's Presidential campaigns. 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 workplaces, uplifted their stories, and held Walmart accountable in more than 22 states nationwide.
Anahi pursued her Bachelor 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, everyone should have access to clean air, 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 so and can visit her family in Mexico.
