Graduate Research Fellow
Jesse Foley-Tapia obtained his degree in English at UC Berkeley in 2020 and is now earning his Masters in Journalism. He is set to graduate this year. Jesse is a GSR for the Othering & Belonging Institute and an active member for the Underground Scholars Initiative. At USI Jesse advocates and is a voice for formerly incarcerated students here on campus. Jesse is a firm believer in abolition and community care. He also believes that organic food, clean drinking water, shelter, healthcare, and some form of higher education should be available for all, for free. Ultimately, he would love to help historically and intentionally marginalized communities overcome obstacles and barriers set upon them. This past summer Jesse was a writer and editor for Jenni Monet at Indigenously.
