Stuff About Me:

Cynthia has been struggling all her life being an intregal part of every movement she's been involved in is the way she rolls. I grew up poor.  We went on welfare when my father became an invalid.  The revolutionary wave was first felt when the 3 kings were killed.  If you were poor enough, college was free to quel the people's urge to revolt.

I went on to organize on the railroad becoming the first female to lead a large track local, the BMWE out of Philly and through Sunnyside, NYC.  I urged 750 men to climb down out of gondolla cars to get safety equipment.  Within an hour we had it.

Later I became the Labor Coordinator for Frank Askin's campaign in what was District 10 in Newark, Frank Lautenberg's turf.  We lost because Frank was afraid to deal with pre TPP issues.

Twenty-five years later having lost everything in a trgic house fire and later a Bankruptcy after the economic crisis in 2008 and a subsequent divorce I took to the hill and tried the impossible to salvage the antiquated Grange's legislative skeleton for the locovore movement.  Being an innovative thinker and organizer didn't help.  Conservatives do not like change, they'd rather see the grange die along with the influential legislative arm.  Liberals, more often than not, would rather reinvent the wheel than fight for the right to change communities into what we envision them to be.

Now, we are finally cusping at the end of our life cycles and realizing there remains little time.  It is my greatest hope that people see the political revolution as one with no lines, no state, no color; it is a concept of changing the structure of our existence.

I was born ready.

Sincerely,

Cynthia Soma-Hernandez
