Isabella “Isa” Borgeson (she/they) is a queer, mixed race, Filipina and white community organizer and poet from Oakland. Isa joined the Stop San Quentin Outbreak coalition in 2020 calling for large-scale releases in response to COVID-19 outbreaks across California state prisons. In 2021, she was selected as Ella Baker Center for Human Rights’ inaugural Outside Fellow from their Inside/Outside Policy Fellowship program, which supports systems-impacted organizers through hands-on legislative training. Isa now manages this fellowship at EBC, while working on people-powered legislative campaigns and advocating for decarceration. They are a member of Critical Resistance Oakland chapter, and passionate about using poetry and storytelling as a tool for documenting resistance in their communities.
