Angel Morales was born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela. He moved to the United States in 2006. He recently graduated from Manhattanville College. He grew up in a household where activism and politics were always being discussed. He started his own activism at the Connie Hogarth Center for Social Action at Manhattanville College, and it was here where he was introduced to the Student/Farmworker Alliance. He attended the 2014 Encuentro and was captivated by the level of organizing and leadership in the organization. In November 2014 he hosted two members of the CIW at a very successful event at his school. In addition to his Fair Food activism, Angel has also organized events on and off his campus dealing with police brutality, mass incarceration and climate change. Angel loves spending time exploring NYC, hiking, traveling and eating as many types of food as he can get. He is thrilled to be part of the 2015 SC!
