Who is Christopher?
This is Christopher Soriano and he is born and raised in the east part of Oakland, CA and Ohlone Land. He is 14 years old and is a rising 9th grader. Christopher got into the climate justice movement when he became a 6th grader and joined his school social justice group, Warriors for Justice. His cousins Angelika and Angeline deeply motivated and inspired him to become an activist. Through the connections between W4J and YVA, he became a fellow organizer with YVA’s CalSTRS, Green New Deal, and No Coal in Oakland campaigns. To him, climate justice means fighting for a better future; for a sustainable and equitable future. It means sacrificing your time to fight for a livable planet for many generations to come. For more than two years now, Christopher has used his passion to fight for future generations and fellow youth to motivate him to continue organizing. Currently, he is the campaign coordinator for the CalSTRS campaign, in addition to being a member of the NCIO and GND campaign. What Christopher enjoys about YVA is that it enables youth to increase their leadership skills, and to have a say for what they want to see in the future.
