Luis Garcia

Class 10

Luis Garcia (he/him) works in a lumber mill fulltime. He is passionate about the outdoors and loves walking and running in the mountains. Although he has lived in Tacoma for more than half of his life, he has not lost his identity as a Triqui and Zapotec Indigenous, he is proud of his Mexican origin. Together with his friend Star, Luis created the grassroots organization called Tacoma Migrants Justice, where he participated in creating the Commission of Refugees and Migrants of the City of Tacoma with other members of the community. He also joined his friend Christian López to create Voice Tacoma Radio with a weekly radio show called La Hora del Mezcal, the first Spanish-language radio show focused exclusively on dealing with and discussing social justice issues in the Puget Sound area.
