vista DEVELOPMENT & COMMUNICATIONS COORDINATOR
Thomas is an AmeriCorps VISTA serving as the Development and Communications Coordinator at Root & Rebound.
He recently received his B.A. in Sociocultural Anthropology from the University of California, Davis, where he focused on Latin American history and politics as well as community development.
In 2016, he spent four months studying human rights in Argentina and Chile, specifically the history of and fallout from human rights abuses perpetrated by the state in both countries during their respective periods of military dictatorship in the 70s-80s.
Thomas’ work with Root & Rebound is his first foray into the world of social justice-oriented nonprofits and advocacy on behalf of reentering people and he hopes to soak in as much knowledge as he can from his co-workers and his experience here in hopes of continuing this kind of work after his VISTA year has ended.
In his spare time, he enjoys community radio broadcast, cooking, gardening, reading novels and listening to podcasts.
