JesÃºs envisions a society rooted in âIn Lakâech,â a Mayan ethos affirming: âYou were my other me. If I harm you, I harm myself. If I love and respect you, I love and respect myself.â He believes people who reach for this oneness are less likely to harm other people interpersonally and systematically, which reduces dominations such as sexism, racism, and heterosexism. Inspirited by In Lakâech, JesÅs strives to help people who are isolated, persecuted and silenced by such dominations gain healing, power, and agency; he frames them as notâpeople who struggleâ but as âpeople who overcome.â As an undocumented American, Zapotec and scholar-activist at UC Berkeley, he seeks to use his fellowship to expand developmental opportunities available to marginalized peoples of the Bay Area in California. JesÅs uses meditation, writing, running, hiking, dancing and soccer to help him spiritually navigate the storms involved for social justice.
