Teresa Mosqueda

Councilmember
City of Seattle, Washington

Teresa Mosqueda most recently served as the Political and Strategic Campaign Director of the Washington State Labor Council, AFL-CIO. Mosqueda worked to advance immigrant and refugee rights, enact worker protections, and protect workplace safety. Mosqueda is proud to have drafted and later lead the campaign to pass, Initiative 1433, guaranteeing paid sick and safe leave for all workers in our state, and raising the minimum wage for all low-wage working families. Mosqueda previously served with the Children’s Alliance, where she led the implementation of Apple Health for Kids, which helps ensure no child is turned away from the healthcare they need. Mosqueda’s first job was helping low income Latino seniors receive access to healthcare, housing, and transportation at Sea Mar. Mosqueda is a third-generation Mexican-American, whose calling for public service began as a child, where she learned first-hand what it means to stand up for the most vulnerable, and to fight for transformational change from her parents by making signs for rallies and protests for her parents and community organizers.
