Rose Berry is a Black, Afro-Latinx, femme organizer who committed her life to the fight for liberation at the age of 16. She was born in Panama and grew up in Boston, where she organized for 11 years around migrant and women’s rights, and racial and socio-economic equity.
As one of the founding members of a grassroots organization for young, working-class women called Reflect and Strengthen (R&S), she devoted her time as an organizational leader for 8 years before moving to Oakland and becoming a national organizer, fighting for the decriminalization of Black, Brown, and poor youth and for the liberation of all Black people.
