This woman is doing big things in our community and standing for the people of color in the city. Tyescha helps run the People of Color in Colorado Springs group that allows pocs to connect and create community in this town. She also organized and executed the People of Color in Solidarity day this year that was absolutely spectacular. There were workshops, poets, keynote speakers, childcare, and general fellowship and networking of pocs in the area. Originally from New York, we are so glad life has brought her to us and that she is here to help us grow. She is a leader, a visionary, an innovator, a mother, and a dope poet. Tyescha is on the board of ESN and has contributed to multiple organizations and events in the springs.
