Ecaterina Burton

Ecaterina Burton currently works at the Alameda County Community Food Bank in Oakland, California, as the Advocacy and Education Associate. Her work is part policy work and part community organizing. Having grown up in the military and lived across the world, Ecaterina has witnessed firsthand the gross socioeconomic inequalities that cause millions of people to live in poverty and go hungry. After graduating from Harvard University with a BA in Psychology, Ecaterina has spent several years working directly with everyday people who are fighting to create a more just world for their children and others. Due to her work, she is passionate about issues of poverty, hunger, food justice, environmental racism, social justice, gender/race politics and feminism. When she has free time, she finds herself gravitating between rock climbing and cooking grub.
