MEET OUR STAFF!
Jason Rodney is the Superconductor, also known as Director of Education & Campaigns. He grew up in Cleveland Heights, OH, and has lived in Minneapolis for 10 years -- definitely not a meta-youth (under 17) anymore. At USACYC, Jason organizes for our racial justice campaign, high-fives the curriculum team, supports local #coopyouth clubs, shuffles papers, and brings in the grantcash. He’s really into collective liberation, and some tools that he loves on the way are Resource Generation, meditation, InterPlay, somatics & consensual snuggles with all sorts of species. He could be described as a fresh bowl of popcorn.
Jesus H Lucero is our DoME short for Director of Membership and Engagement. A recent graduate of Luther College in Decorah, Iowa but a Colorado native and a newly dubbed Minneapolis transplantee. A Psychology major and double minor in Music and Women’s and Gender Studies, he did what any graduate does in this phase of transitioning… nothing related to what he studied, but he loves it! After spending a lot of his time in student government and working with residential life and other student organizations on campus, the next step was to level up and move into a world of direct action, education, and advocacy. Jesus is a lifelong foodie, experimenter, runner, yoga-loving, sexuality and gender advocate just trying to figure out this adulting game!
