Elizabeth Ojeda-Jiménez is a candidate for Alderman of Berwyn's 4th Ward. She is also a teacher, a proud elected member of the Board of Directors and Executive Committee for the Illinois Education Association, Vice-President of Berwyn South District 100 School Board, and Co-founder of Berwyn Community Action, a grassroots collective of community residents that fights for immigrant, racial, and social justice.
Originally from Michoacán, México, Elizabeth came to the United States at age ten and became the first in her family to graduate with a degree in higher education. She is a single parent of three children and has been a resident of Berwyn for 21 years.
As a working-class educator, immigrant, single mother, and experienced community leader, Elizabeth believes that the voices of all residents - including the most marginalized in our community - should be centered in the city’s decision-making process, and she is ready to get to work for you.
