Ingrid Romero is an educator, media-maker, and organizer, excited to join the Bro/Sis community as a Sister Sol Chapter Leader. She grew up in New York City, with deep roots in the Andes of Colombia, and has been active in grassroots organizing, movement building and youth-led social change since she was 14 years old. She rose as a feminist youth worker at Sadie Nash Leadership Project, a young woman’s leadership organization based in NYC and Newark, NJ. Aside from youth development, her work spans from food and labor justice organizing, museum education, and community-public art initiatives.
Ingrid is a proud alum of City-As School, and has been actively working towards a bachelor’s degree at CUNY. Aside from formal education, Ingrid has completed trainings from the School of Unity & Liberation (SOUL), the Highlander Center and Theatre of the Oppressed NYC. She was also a board member of the former ROC-NY (Restaurant Opportunities Center of NY). Ingrid is inspired to continue the legacy of fierce and intentional youth work because of the local youth programs she grew up in that nurtured her leadership.
