The Office of ASUC Senator Juniperangelica/Gia Cordova is rooted in the idea of community-lead organizing. As a brown, transgender women who experienced homelessness throughout high school and community college, her office has centered the basic needs of marginalized students. Some key projects her office has spearheaded range from reforming the inactive UC Berkeley Police Review Board to founding the Together We Thrive Fund, which is a year-long fundraiser aimed at supporting financial needs of students throughout the summer. Gia has personally crafted and launched the TGirl Leadership Initiative that will uplift the leadership of transgender students through an intensive leadership cohort. Her office is also hosting the 2018 Queer & Trans People of Color Conference. Her office secured over $80,000 in campus funding for marginalized student communities.
