Priscilla González has worked with grassroots organizations since the early 2000s to build power toward long-term systemic change. For a decade in the domestic workers’ movement, she helped to build organizational infrastructure, organizing capacity and reach amongst a broad sector of allies to help pass the nation’s first Domestic Workers’ Bill of Rights, in addition to serving as part of the team that launched the National Domestic Workers Alliance. She then went on to Communities United for Police Reform, the largest unprecedented campaign/coalition for police accountability, where she helped to co-lead efforts that resulted in the New York City Council passage of the Community Safety Act; organized key civic engagement and education activities that helped to uplift policing as a key issue in the 2013 citywide elections; and managed CPR’s membership and expanded CPR’s partner network.
Since 2016, Priscilla has been consulting on a range of social justice projects locally and nationally. El Diario/La Prensa has honored her among the Top 25 Women of Achievement in New York (2009), and New York’s City & State listed her as a “Rising Star 40 Under 40” (2011).
Priscilla was a Tenenbaum Leadership Fellow at the New School and completed the Cornell/AFL-CIO Union Leadership Institute. She is a graduate of Barnard College and the London School of Economics and Political Science.
