Meet Sam, Prince William Field Organizer

Samuel.Zuniga@sierraclub.org

 956-457-5344

Born in Austin to first generation immigrants, Sam saw the various difficulties encountered by migrants and also the opportunities America provided. Sam’s Spanish-speaking household didn’t prepare him for an English-language classroom, and he was held back a grade in school while he learned English. A tenacious student, Sam went on to be the first from his family to go to college. He studied social history and government, graduating from his first master’s program in 2012 and the second in 2016. Jumping from theory to practice, Sam decided that community engagement and organizing was the best way to effect change.
