Daisy Benitez
Bilingual Health Equity and Transportation Justice 
Organizer

Daisy is an international activist for immigrant rights and economic justice. We are fortunate to continue to collaborate with Daisy beyond borders!

I'm a low-income Afro-Latina fighting for justice in all facets of our society. I hope to continue working with local groups to further an agenda that centers working people, like the George Wiley Center has been doing for decades.

I consider myself a passionate individual when it comes to community work. There’s something about assisting others through situations I can relate to that drives me. I’m originally from Chicago and grew up in Uptown. Art has always been a natural talent, during my sophomore year of high school I completed an artist apprenticeship at gallery 37. I attended college for computer animation and graphic design, but ultimately landed a career as a tattoo artist; my specialty is realism. In 2006 I moved to Massachusetts where I worked in the management field and preformed administrative and secretarial duties. I now live in Pawtucket assisting at the George Wiley Center. I’d like to help as much as I can, motivate others to push through hard times and find their potential.

I'm passionate about community organizing, education, and visual art. Originally from southeastern Connecticut, I am so happy to be working with my community at the GWC for economic justice for all Rhode Islanders, and towards a just transition to renewable energy that centers low-income and working class people and people of color.

Alesia Ross

Ever since I was a child I knew that God had a purpose for my life but I didn't quite know what my purpose was. I knew that he put in my heart to love people, no matter race, color, creed. Especially when I was going through segregation in the 60s, me and two other black children in all white private school... being a single mom raising four children on my own, showing them and teaching them that you have to be educated and work to make it in this world. I have 13 grandchildren. And the way this world is, I want to help to make it a better place for us all.

 

By working at the George Wiley as a community organizer, I'm learning so much about grassroots organizing and social and economic change. I'm able to speak to clients and members because I can relate to a lot of injustice, such as homelessness, incarceration, and drug addiction. I'm the best example because I've been through it. So being part of the George Wiley staff is a great honor. This is something that I always wanted to do. I'm going to be 60 years old. It's never too late to follow your dream.
