María Poblet

María Poblet (@mariadelpueblo) is Executive Director of Causa Justa :: Just Cause (www.cjjc.org). She is Chicana and Argentine, with extensive Latino community organizing experience. She led the strategic mergers that built Causa Justa, aggregating the power of 3 different neighborhood-based Latino & African American organizing groups to create a single, regional, multi-racial powerhouse for racial & economic justice.

She serves on the Coordinating Committee of the Grassroots Global Justice Alliance, and is a co-founder of the US chapter of the World March of Women. She is active in social movements within and beyond her role at Causa Justa and is an avid writer. María was mentored by June Jordan, serving as Artistic Director of Poetry for the People before she fell in love with organizing.
