Rene, Cristy, and Marx Rivera
Rene and Cristy’s story began in the street of Manila. Growing up as a teen during the Marcos martial law years, Rene became a student activist, participating in protest marches and rallies, while Cristy showed her support by secretly bringing him milk during hunger strikes. After migrating to the US, Rene and Cristy continued to be active in community organizing while raising their kids in the national democratic movement. Marx is one of three siblings and is currently serving the people through Migrante Seattle.
