Tamara Favors

Tamara is a mom and community organizer, who hails from South Central Los Angeles (never South LA). As a child in California, she had experienced different forms of poverty and discrimination which propelled her to seek justice and equality. In her whole college experience she joined organizing, clubs, conferences, and participated in cross collaboration. In post college, she joined a Americorp program named Public Allies and has an alumni network in the social justice space. In 2020, when the world was shaken, she decided to make a bold move and take her organizing to another state. She worked at Make It Work Nevada, where organized around Black reproductive issues until she transitioned into her role here at PLAN, where she is one of the housing justice organizers.
