Writer and Activist / Escritora y Activista
“I write because I’m scared of writing, but I’m more scared of not writing.” — Gloria Anzaldúa
“Escribo porque tengo miedo de escribir. Pero tengo más miedo de no escribir.” — Gloria Anzaldúa
I was born to write. I have been published in the Huffington Post, the San Francisco Chronicle, La Opinión, Wired News, and Daily Kos. I am passionate about writing, building community, and empowering the citizenry.
My writing is accessible to different constituencies, and I can speak, read and write Spanish in addition to English with native fluency. I currently work as a campaign director at a digital women’s rights organization. The opinions expressed on my personal website and blog are strictly my own, and not that of my employer.
As a Latinx mother and daughter of working-class parents, I bring an equity lens to all of my work. I understand that public policies, discourse, and business practices impact certain communities differently, or leave them out altogether.
My writing is accessible to different constituencies, and I can speak, read and write Spanish in addition to English with native fluency. The following is my portfolio:
Including advocacy, messaging, list growth, business development, and government.
Including Comms plans, press releases, Op-ED, opinion writing, blog posts, email outreach, petitions and social media content.
Speeches and presentations
I have been a presenter and given speeches since April 2002 and still do to the present day.
Professional translation services between English and Spanish. In both ways.
Elisa’s writing has appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle, Wired News, Daily Kos, & more. Opinions are my own!
