Meet PAZ Fellows

Bonnie Loughran

Community Organizer

Originally from Western New York, I moved to Phoenix by way of the Bronx in August 2018 after studying Sociology and Latin American & Latinx Studies at Fordham University (’18). Shaped by my Ignatian education both in and outside the classroom, I decided to serve for one year with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps. This means I live in an intentional community of other volunteers and work full-time with Promise Arizona. Being the 2018-19 Jesuit Volunteer is a privilege that’s deepening both my understanding of community-based justice work and my commitment to doing my part as an ally of immigrants, refugees, and other marginalized individuals and communities.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Angela Reyes

Communications/Digital Organizing

I was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. I am a rising sophomore at Swarthmore College in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where I am studying Computer Science. I am currently interning at Promise Arizona through The Lang Center’s Summer Social impact Scholarship. I had volunteered with Promise Arizona since my junior year of high school doing voter registration and canvassing. I am now back at Promise Arizona in a different role but still contributing to the same mission: building immigrant and Latino political power. My experience at PAZ has taught me to use my voice to shed light on issues and the importance of building lasting connections with individuals who share the same mission.
