Biography

 

Socorro Cisneros was born in Los Angeles, growing up in the South Central and East Los Angeles neighborhoods. This gave her an early consciousness of the disparity of opportunities in her environment.

 

After high school Socorro attended East Los Angeles College as a single mother. She realized only by way of an education would she be able to offer her child more opportunities in life.  It was here that she became involved with student activism that eventually led her to join Cesar Chavez and the United Farm Workers Grape Boycott in the early 90’s

 

Between caring for her child, going to college, and working only part time she found that a full time job would be necessary. For the next 24 years she worked for the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation Authority a union job that she enjoyed. While working and with her value of education she continued her education in her time off. She was able to earn a Bachelor degree in Organizational Management.

 

She never forgot the United Farm Workers and the struggle for fair working conditions. She became heavily involved in Labor Union activities helping fellow workers. She earned a degree in Labor Studies and began her involvement with other Unions preparing for hearings, negotiating contracts, interpreting contract language, congressional lobbying for safety standards, organizing union election campaigns and as an official observer of election processes.

 

In addition, she served her community as an advocate for parents with special needs children. 
She help prepare IEPs and negotiated on behalf of parents with school officials.

 

After relocating to the High Desert area of California she again found herself being a voice and coming to the defense of who cannot defend themselves. She became involved in her community and led a group of home owners against the establishment of an industrial sized development in a residential neighborhood.

 

Socorro lives in the High Desert with her husband, where she serves as the Chair of the Tri-community Democratic Club and Vice-Chair of the High Desert SCLC. She is a member and organizer; High Desert Latina Summit, Phelan Chamber of Commerce, Chicano Latino Democratic Caucus, LULAC and NAACP to name a few.
