Community Leader: Nelson Nailat

Nelson Nailat

Nelson Matthew Nailat Jr. is both a student and a teacher in Long Beach and Los Angeles. Nelson currently attends California State University of Long Beach. As a childcare aide educator, Nelson has developed a strong connection with local youth, which sparked his interest in “empowering [them] through written and oral expressions.” Nelson actively runs events for a Long Beach arts collective called Break The Silence, which allows people of all ages to express themselves through art. To many, Nelson is an inspirational disc jockey and driven community organizer. Nelson believes that the Coalition allows him to be the latter and to fight for justice for the workers in his community.
