Elizabeth "Liz" Lugo

Born and raised in East Los Angeles, Elizabeth’s dedication to improving the quality of life on the Eastside stems from her early years as a youth organizer advocating for educational justice issues in East Los Angeles High schools. She brings over 18 years of experience in the areas of nonprofit management, fund development, communications and special events planning and has effectively built the grassroots fundraising arm of multiple social justice organizations in the Eastside. There’s never a dance floor empty when Liz is around. Liz grooves to funk, old school, oldies, hip and—oh yes—rock and hip-hop.
