Cindy Agustín Peña is the Director of Student Support Services, Center for Identity + Inclusion at The University of Chicago.

“Now is the time for communities of color to strategize, organize, and fight for our collective liberation and ensure that our youth have opportunities to grow, learn and thrive. I want to work with passionate leaders who are reimagining what is possible – a world where communities of colors can thrive, where we are experts in our lived experiences, and we can build on the work from the past. Through Surge, I will work with Fellows to reimagine and build a world where our lives and experiences are valued, where Black and Brown voices are the center of the fight for equity, and build bridges across our differences to create the world our youth deserve.”
