Tina has been involved in many charitable organizations and causes including school PTAs, toy drives and events for refugees, and voter registration. She volunteers as a Democratic Precinct Chair in her area and is a Voluntary Deputy Voter Registrar.
Tina became interested in Daya after attending previous events. The survivor stories showed the major impact Daya had on all aspects of their lives, from housing to education to career counseling and therapy.
Tina believes that Daya is filling a major void in the community by helping survivors break down the cultural barriers that are keeping them from moving forward. As an Honorary Chair, Tina hopes to see Daya grow and empower many more survivors and families.
