Emmanuel Solis


Emmanuel was born in Huntington Park, CA to working-class Mexican immigrant parents and raised in Flint, MI. After doing community work around the Flint Water Crisis through local organizations such as the Latinx Technology & Community Center and the Genesee County Hispanic/Latino Collaborative, Emmanuel set off for the University of Michigan. There he found himself again centering his commitment to bolstering the Latinx community by mentoring youth via PALMA (Proyecto Avance: Latino Mentoring Association), organizing an educational summer camp in Ecuador with The Quito Project, and editing a literary arts student publication through Latinidad Magazine. After a short stint at a marketing agency, Emmanuel came back to movement work at RTTC and is glad to be in this space. Emmanuel is currently based in Brooklyn, NY where he enjoys being gay.
