Sophia Zaman

Raise the Floor Alliance.
Sophia Zaman is the proud daughter of her Bangladeshi mother, who taught her to always seek justice and live purposefully. She came to be Executive Director of Raise the Floor by way of the student movement, where she organized campaigns for racial, gender and economic justice. Most recently, she served as President of the United States Student Association, where she represented over one million college students & fought for free public higher education. She is a collective member at Chicago Desi Youth Rising which empowers 15-21 year-olds–who trace their heritage to South Asia & the diaspora, to challenge the myth of the model minority and be lifelong change-makers. Sophia is a fierce believer ingrounding rituals to sustain movement work, so during her downtime you will usually find her nurturing her flora, experimenting in the kitchen, painting outside the lines, or doodling with mehndi.
