Statewide Organizing Director
Ariel is the statewide organizing director for One Pennsylvania. Ariel supports organizers to build strategic campaigns with personal resilience, collective power and a commitment to leadership development and political education. Ariel committed to organizing and building up social movements after experiencing the effects of the 2008 housing crisis, when he became unemployed and watched his family’s home go into foreclosure. He brings over 8 years of organizing experience to One PA, fighting for housing justice first with the Women’s Community Revitalization Project and then creating Renters United Philadelphia at the Public Interest Law Center. He is inspired by social movements in the Global South and watching members and colleagues transform in the struggle for justice. When not at work, Ariel tends his vegetable garden, spends time with his family, and loves to canoe.
