Media and Communications Coordinator
Edgar Lopez grew up in the south side neighborhood, “Back of the Yards”. He is a first-generation U.S. citizen and his parents both migrated from Mexico in search of better opportunities. The struggles his parents faced as undocumented workers have influenced his path to working in the community.
He currently is a student at Harold Washington College but hopes to transfer to a 4-year college to pursue education. He is one of the leaders of Fuerza del Sol- Justice Task Force at PNCC. In his free time, he likes to watch documentaries, bike and do photography.
