Welcome Elena Gonzalez, our new Workers’ Rights Coordinator!

We want to extend a warm welcome to Elena Gonzalez, who joined our team this October as our new Workers’ Rights Coordinator. Elena is originally from Chiapas, a town on the border of Mexico and Guatemala. She grew up in Mexico, but also lived for many years in Guatemala. She moved to Siler City in 1999. As soon as she arrived, she found The Hispanic Liaison and an opportunity to get involved in the community. Elena has been a part of El Vínculo ever since, first as a client, then a volunteer, and she served as a member of the Board of Directors for 10 years.

Previously, Elena worked as an Assistant Nutritionist at Siler City Elementary and was the Breast Cancer Prevention Coordinator for El Pueblo in Raleigh for 3 years. She graduated from CCCC’s Natural Chef Program, and has been a trained chef since she lived in Mexico. Elena is honored for the opportunity to support our community and fight for the rights of workers. Welcome to our team Elena!
