Before becoming a board member, Greg has volunteered with PUEBLO and has recently begun an internship working with the Executive Director and other volunteers to end car impoundments targeted at undocumented migrants.  His work with PUEBLO stems from a personal and political commitment to social justice and to equality for all those living and working in Santa Barbara county, especially marginalized members of our county.  As a PUEBLO Education Fund (PEF) Board Member, Greg hopes to contribute to PEF's ongoing mission to advocate for the rights and well being of low income and immigrant members of our community.
