About the Instructor

Kevin Escobar

Kevin Escobar is a queer-POC popular education facilitator from Morris County, New Jersey. He was born in the US of immigrant parents from Honduras and El Savlador, and his family’s unique experience with respect to immigration has shaped his understanding of the world. As a Board Trustee of Wind of the Spirit (WotS), Immigrant Resource Center, he has spent the last two years organizing his immigrant community in Morris County through pandemic, leveraging people power to create legislative change in pursuit of equality and justice for immigrant communities of color, including indigenous populations. Thanks to these legislative advocacy efforts undocumented community members in New Jersey can now get driver’s licenses, work in certified professions like HVAC or welding, and even apply for state established COVID19 stimulus funds for essential workers excluded from federal pandemic relief. He believes in art as a mechanism to develop political consciousness and drive social change. Through the promotion of art and culture, communities can reframe colonial and capital-based understandings of the world around us, and dream for a more just world.
