Magdalena is an 8th grader in Oakland who co-founded the Earth Guardians Bay Area Crew with her brother when she was 10 years old.

She is also an active member of Youth vs Apocalypse and bravely has used her art and dancing to disrupt board meetings to call for the teachers' pension fund to divest billions from fossil fuel companies. She was one of the youngest in the video that went viral when students asked Senator Feinstein to support the Green New Deal in 2019. Magdalena is most happy when she is hanging out with her friends and family, reading and getting to be at the ocean.

Coming Together by Going to The Root: Youth Bridging for Climate Justice
Youth Vs. Apocalypse is a frontline youth-driven climate justice organization. Their collective action aims to lift the voices of youth, in particular youth of color and working class youth, in the fight for a livable climate and an equitable, sustainable, and just world. YVA brings together young people and adult allies by being clear that Climate change comes from the same system that has exploited people based on race, class, gender and more for generations. Join us to discuss building community, meeting people where they are, and how we decide where to put our attention.
