About the speaker
Vishal Reddy grew up in Cleveland and went to school in North Carolina at UNC-Chapel Hill. Through getting involved in student activism and local community organizing, he saw the potential of power-building via multiracial working class movements. After college Vishal returned to Cleveland, first working as an educator for an after school program for middle school youth, and later as an organizer for a scrappy homelessness justice coalition that mobilized hand-in-hand with folks experiencing homelessness. Vishal is currently enrolled in law school but took a leave of absence to work on the 2020 campaign cycle. Vishal worked as a paid canvasser and campus organizer in four states for Bernie 2020 and then as a field organizer for an anti-Trump organizing initiative in NC. Currently, Vishal is working as the Text Team Lead for People’s Action.
