Kenia is the statewide coordinator for Washington for Equitable Representation (WER), a project of the Washington Community Alliance. WER is a statewide, multi-racial coalition fighting to achieve equitable representation through proportional ranked-choice voting and other democracy reforms.
Kenia lives and grew up in Yakima, WA. She graduated from Yakima Valley College and became a community organizer with the United Farm Workers Foundation –working with farm workers in eastern Washington and in the Yakima valley at the peak of the pandemic.
She has organized undocumented students and other college students to advocate for free college and provided critical support as justice housing intake coordinator at Yakima volunteer attorney services.
In 2022, Kenia was part of a panel discussion, hosted by the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, focused largely on COVID-19’s disproportionate impact on Latino’s alongside Dr. Anthony Fauci.
