Activist, Community Organizer and Assistant Director

Tarin is an Activist and Community Organizer. Her parents fled oppression in Chile under the Pinochet regime and came to the Bronx where Tarin grew up in the 80s and 90s, exposing her to the conditions and experiences that have informed her unique perspective on grassroots organizing. In high school, she struggled until she met a teacher who mentored her regarding her own culture and taught her to understand society through a systemic lens. Tarin became radicalized. A few years ago, Tarin moved to Westchester County and worked as the Community and Family Services Coordinator, as well as the Community Organizer and Facilitator of a Food Justice Committee. She currently serves as Assistant Director of the Connie Hogarth Center for Social Action at Manhattanville College, Purchase N.Y. Tarin holds a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and a master’s degree in Organizational Leadership.
