Diana Perez-Ramirez is a community health worker, apprentice midwife, language justice worker and public health practitioner working in different fronts to build our collective capacity to organize and care for each other. Her own lived experience as a migrant kid growing up undocumented in anti-immigrant so called Arizona was her entry point into the migrant justice movement, community health work, anti police repression and prisoner solidarity work.

She is a founding member of Puente Human Rights Movement, a founding member of Phoenix Allies for Community Health and served as member chair of the membership committee at Families for Freedom in NYC.  She has been involved in the movement to abolish prison slavery, including supporting the prison strikes of 2016 and 2018 and the liberation of US political prisoners.
