A short documentary about Esperanza Tervalon-Daumont. Esperanza was one of two Bay Area activists honored at the Redford Center's Nov 2010 Art of Activism event. Esperanza is executive director of Oakland Rising, an up-and-coming, non-partisan electoral force that recently contacted more than 17,000 Oakland residents to encourage them to participate in the U.S. Census. Through her work on a national level—as a Hurricane Katrina housing community organizer and a campaign field director, among other roles—and on a local level, she demonstrates her commitment to sustainable solutions to social issues such as affordable housing, quality education, and living wage job opportunities for youth and adults.
