Radicalization

"I grew up in Chula Vista, two miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border. Vigilante, murderous white people were shooting at families crossing the border. My parents told me we have a responsibility to take care of our community; so I registered voters and campaigned against anti-immigrant ballot initiatives."

After enrolling at UC Berkeley in 1996, Gonzáles met Harmony Goldberg and Rona Fernandez, was radicalized[1] and decided that fundamentally changing the system required her to do more than vote.

SOUL

Around 2002 Genevieve Gonzáles, took over as SOUL's Bay Area director, freeing Harmony Goldberg to expand the organization at the national level.

"We are a school to build a movement -- like the Highlander Center in Tennessee,"

Alicia Garza, Adam Gold, Stacy Kono, Danielle Mahones, Genevieve Negron-Gonzales and Maria Poblet.
