Zabrina graduated May 2014 Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Kent State University. Born in Cleveland, Ohio she is a huge Cleveland Browns and Cavaliers fan. Zabrina spent her last semester at college in Washington, D.C. interning for the Sierra Club’s Beyond Oil campaign working to stop the Keystone XL pipeline. She then accepted a job with Energy Action Coalition working to bring students from around New England to New York City for the People’s Climate March which was the largest climate march in history, totaling 400,000 people. Zabrina’s experience has taught her about the impacts that hydraulic fracturing has on our local community and she’s excited to work for CPC to ban it in the Denver area, and eventually statewide. When she’s not organizing she is hiking, camping, snowboarding, or learning how to rock climb.

As a CPC member, Alex has worked to raise awareness of law enforcement misconduct and methods to help hold officers accountable. He has conducted trainings and workshops, contributed to policy critique and accountability, and collaborated with local and national groups to battle human rights injustices. Alex has focused on police accountability but has also developed a consciousness of other struggles. CPC is excited to have Alex to fight for Economic and Racial Justice in Colorado.
