Lead Organizer of the january 2019 March & Rally. Initiative: Voter Justice
Scarlette Bustos is a local activist, grassroots community organizer, and business manager, working side by side with the ever growing WMS Community Advisory Council to organize the 2019 march and rally on the CA State Capitol. She recently completed an Organizing Leaders Fellowship with The Hub Project along with other non-partisan campaign organizers nationwide who fight for a fair tax code and healthcare for all. Scarlette is best known in the community as the lead organizer for Tax March Sacramento.
Additionally, Scarlette is an active board member of Organize Win Legislate Sacramento (OWLS): a political organization serving progressive activists in Sacramento. She's also a proud member of the Sacramento Chapter of Move to Amend which seeks to create a constitutional amendment to firmly establish that money is not speech, and that human beings, not corporations, are persons entitled to constitutional rights. Scarlette believes that money in politics, campaign financing, and greed weave together most problems faced by the ongoing Civil Rights Movement.
Scarlette uses her Bachelors Degree in Theatre Arts Directing from CSUS to organize and execute local rallies and marches for national campaigns in the Sacramento and surrounding areas. She is excited about the ongoing changes to Women's March Sacramento, especially as an ally chapter of Women's March Global in solidarity with those seeking to end violence against women across our world.
