Nicole Mendoza is a recent graduate of UC Berkeley, where she studied Political Science and Public Policy. Her passion for equity and social justice guided her leadership at the YWCA Berkeley/Oakland, where she managed lobbying efforts and campus organizing for progressive policies. She built on this advocacy through research positions at Berkeley Law, where she explored remedies to global sexual violence, and at Giffords, where she worked on grassroots development and analyzed gun violence prevention legislation. Nicole is always happy to discuss her Los Angeles roots, and in her free time, she enjoys biking, re-watching Parks and Rec, and reading fiction.
