Berlinda Mojica
Senior Linkage Manager, ProUnitas Berlinda Mojica currently serves as Senior Linkage Manager with ProUnitas, INC, an education nonprofit. In her role, Berlinda coordinates community partnerships with over 20 local organizations and health agencies, which render services to over 500 students enrolled at Roderick Paige Elementary, a Title 1 school in the Kashmere Trinity Gardens neighborhood of Houston. Most recently, she secured special partnerships with the Young Audiences of Houston, the Houston Ballet, and Brighter Bites to increase access to the arts and nutrition education. Berlinda's career in education began in 2012 as a Teach For America corps member in Houston's East End. Her 4th grade students earned laudable academic achievements and were featured at a national conference for their analysis and representations of current and past Latino leaders. Apparent issues beyond the classroom walls motivated Berlinda to co-found ONE Houston (Organizing Network for Education, Houston), a community organizing network of teachers, students, parents, and community members dedicated to ensuring educational equity for Houston students. For the past two years, Berlinda has volunteered as Communications Director for ONE Houston, expanding the social media presence, developing a website, and cultivating relationships with local and national news affiliates to cover pressing issues and actions brought forth by ONE Houston members. In 2016, ONE Houston successfully organized to end exclusionary discipline policies in schools and close Houston Independent School District's alternative school, originally built and run by the Corrections Corporation of America (CCA), a United States private prison contractor. Berlinda's contributions this past year, ensured continued coverage of the misuse public dollars and secured news and editorial placements with Slate Magazine, the Houston Chronicle, the Houston Press, Houston Public Media, Univision, and KPFT News. Now as a self-proclaimed, community organizer, Berlinda's growing understanding of the inequities faced by families in Houston and across the nation continues to motivate her to dedicate time and energy to ensuring that the bad policies go and that the community informs the ones to come. Berlinda holds a BA in Spanish Literature from the University of Massachusetts, Boston and plans to pursue a Masters in Education Policy in the very near future.
