Elaine Villanueva Bernal
Elaine Villanueva Bernal serves as Faculty Advisor to Delta Lambda Phi, a fraternity for gay, bisexual, transgender and progressive men, the CSULB Pilipino American Coaltion, and I am a member of the CSULB LGBTQIA+ Coalition. As a parent of school age children in the Long Beach Unified School District (LBUSD), I serve on the Sato Academy of Math and Sciences School Site Council and fully understand the challenges of educating our children during this global pandemic.
As a Pilipinx activist I have worked with several grassroots organizations to advocate for laborers in the Pilipinx community especially Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) and nurses, and lobby for the Philippine Human Rights Act which would stop hundreds of millions of US tax dollars from funding state violence against the people of the Philippines. My family and I have been strongly rooted in this community for over 40 years. My father is a Vietnam Vet who worked at the Long Beach Naval Base and VA hospital and my mother worked for the local electronic manufacturing and food service industries. My spouse grew up in North Long Beach, I grew up in Carson, and we have been Long Beach residents for eight years. I am a proud member of the California Faculty Association, Democratic Socialists of America - Long Beach, and the Long Beach Alliance for Clean Energy.
