Jean Miller Resource Room announces new staff member

The Jean Miller Resource Room announced a new program coordinator on Friday, March 16.

Shaila Ramos graduated from De Anza in 2013, and transferred to University of California Santa Cruz, where she studied community studies and Latin American Latinx studies, according to an email from Dean of Equity and Engagement, Aliciz Cortez.

“As a queer, undocumented woman of color, she has worked in the intersectionalities of immigration and LGBTQQ while utilizing activism as healing and self-care,” said the email.

La Voz archives show Ramos was heavily involved in civic engagement work while at De Anza.

Ramos was the co-founder of HEFAS, a member of the Integral Movement for AB540 Student Success Club and an executive vice president in the DASB Senate.
