Erica Reyes is a human rights advocate and self professed politics and policy nerd. She grew up on the Central Coast in Nipomo, California and can not keep away. After circumnavigating the globe, lobbying in Washington DC, and obtaining her BA in Sociology from UC Santa Cruz, she has found herself back in San Luis Obispo County. The proud Banana Slug began her career as an AmeriCorps volunteer which quickly turned into grassroots political organizing. Now a District Representative for Congressman Salud Carbajal, she enjoys advocating for constituents and keeping her pulse on the local political scene. Her extracurriculars include advocating for women’s reproductive rights with the Planned Parenthood Central Coast Action Fund Board and she is a Vice-Chair with the San Luis Obispo Democratic Party. In her spare time, she enjoys hanging out in downward facing dog and walking the beach with her partner in crime.
