Mia Carbajal Advocacy & Program Associate
Mia completed her B.A. in American Studies with an emphasis in city and regional planning and public policy at the University of California at Berkeley. Her senior honors thesis explored the relationship between bicycle infrastructure in San Francisco’s Mission District and the gentrification, accompanied by wide-scale evictions, occurring in the area. Mia has worked for the Mission Economic Development Agency surveying working-class residents aspiring to open a business or become homeowners in order to assess better ways in helping them achieve their goals through the agency’s programs. She spent this past fall working at the Urban Institute in Washington D.C. researching the current state of Hispanic/ Latino professionals in the real estate industry, and also housing search trends for renters living in the DC-metro area. In addition to working with EBHO, Mia also writes about various topics around the economic, political, and social status of Latinas in the U.S. for an online multigenerational Latina magazine.
