Activist and Youth Community Organizer

Zeltzyn Sanchez Gomez is a 19 year-old Mexico-born DACA-mented activist who has resided in Port Chester, NY for the past 12 years. Fueled by curly fries and iced coffee, she is a highly motivated community organizer/activist working for Sustainable Port Chester Alliance and, more recently, for Wespac as the Youth Organizer/Coordinator. Zeltzyn has worked on a variety of issues ranging from affordable housing advocacy, the adverse effects of the war on drugs, voter and immigrant rights. Whether as a speaker, panelist, volunteer, translator, or advocate, she wouldn’t be able to do this without the support of her friends, family, and community.
