Daisy is a daughter of immigrants from Jalisco, Mexico and Michoacán, Mexico. She was born in Silverton, Oregon but has lived in Salem her whole life, and graduated from McKay High School in Salem, Oregon.
Daisy has been working to better her community through community outreach and civic engagement in Oregon since 2015 where she began as a Team leader at CAREcorps, and later went on to support in the 2020 Census, Yes For A Healthy Future Campaign, COVID-19 vaccine support at Salem Health, and PCUN’s COVID-19 campaign.
Her hope is to help the Latinx community as best as she can by providing crucial information regarding our political and electoral power, and support through grassroots organizing, thus creating a stronger and genuine connection with Latinx communities in the mid-Willamette Valley.
Through her work, Daisy hopes to make herself, family and community proud and to grow in her position as much as she can. Outside of PCUN, Daisy enjoys creating art, reading and spending time with friends and family.
Currently, Daisy is the Data and Field Organizer at PCUN and is passionate about working towards a just and equitable future for farmworkers, Latinx working families and underserved communities.
