Victor Pacheco was born in Fairfield, California to his proud Salvadoran mother and Black father. Victor gained his political consciousness at a very young age under the guidance of his grandmother, a fierce advocate for social justice. He attended Solano Community College and later transferred to UC Riverside where he graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science. This is where Victor found his calling as an organizer, combating issues that disproportionately affected low-income black and brown students such as food security, homelessness, and public safety. In 2017, he joined Community Coalition as a Youth Organizer.
Fun Fact: To Victor, music is everything. He is an avid player of the ukulele, the piano, and loves to sing the blues.
