Meet Vicki Rubio
I’ve lived in Indianapolis for about 14 years and really appreciate the community I’ve built here. I work for Citizen University as a Program Manager. I get joy out of reading, exploring, and gardening, particularly with native plants.
What is it about PLC’s work that appeals to you?
One of the things that drew me to PLC was the internal work the organization has and continues to undertake to implement anti-racist practices and policies. That internal work is so important for an organization that is working with schools and other community members and groups to advance equity and justice.
What kind of work do you do with PLC?
I’m currently serving as secretary of the board and also serve on the finance committee. In these roles, I support planning for our monthly board meetings and help provide financial oversight.
Can you tell us a memorable experience or something you have learned during your time at PLC?
I have learned about the impact that restorative justice and social-emotional learning practices can have in schools. Teachers are building critical skills for engaging with students through PLC workshops. Students are learning about how to manage conflict effectively and how to build a better classroom community with their peers. This work is so vital to building a stronger, more peaceful Indianapolis.
