Luz Schreiber

Luz Schreiber Lopez is a queer Latina mother, food designer, translator, dancer and writer. She co-founded Atl Tlachinolli, an Aztec community dance circle based in Queens, and Ollin Imagination, a Latino parent art collective. Luz was the national civic engagement coordinator at Right to the City and the youth and immigrant rights organizer for Sistas and Brothas United. Luz, a member of SLAM!, spearheaded the Defend Hunter Childcare campaign at Hunter College.


Luz Schreiber worked on Student Liberation Action Movement’s open admissions campaign and other projects between 1998 and 2000. Co-founder of Ollin Imagination (a cultural circle of resistance of parents, artists, students, and educators of color), Luz is a creative writing major and Hunter Student Union organizer.

Luz: The village in Oaxaca where I’m from has a great spirit of resistance, dating back to the Mexican revolution in 1910. I came to New York in 1998, four years into the Zapatista rebellion against neoliberalism’s economic policies. People in Chiapas and elsewhere are displaced by these policies. The struggle in CUNY to keep admissions open was also about stopping students being displaced from the university. I was surprised that people in SLAM knew about the Zapatistas. From that, I knew that this was a group of people that cared about what was going on in the world and were eager to learn how indigenous people resisted. [1]
