Asheville, North Carolina Area
Monserrat (Monse) Ramirez Perez is a twenty one-year-old, Mexican immigrant. She was first brought to the U.S. at the age of five. In 2012, Monse was a recipient of Deffered Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). She graduated from high school in 2014 and is the first in her immediate family to pursue a college education. As a Tzedek Fellow, Monse works with the Center for Participatory Change (CPC) fighting for language justice by building bridges among different communities.
Through outreach, she uses our shared experience with language to connect communities throughout Western North Carolina. She coordinates an after school interpreter club at Ewin high-school. Monse is a social justice Spanish/English interpreter, a poet, and musician. Monse believes in the importance and magic of healing in community. She has a Pisces sun, Virgo moon, and Cancer ascending. Monse hopes to empower undocumented youth to come out of the shadows and create change for their communities.
