2023 is a year of growth for re:power and we’re thrilled to deepen our impact with the addition of three new team members. Learn more about our new incredible team members below!
Krystal Garcia Centeno
Development & Communications Coordinator
Krystal brings a wealth of experience from advocacy organizations like Warehouse Workers for Justice and the Sierra Club where she was an organizer and operations professional building power with working people across intersectional social justice fights. Krystal was a 2020 At-Large Delegate for Bernie Sanders’s presidential campaign and a community college school board candidate during the 2023 consolidated election cycle, where in both cases she championed progressive policies and advocated for more inclusive democracies.
Krystal is particularly excited to join the Development and Communications team because she is passionate about redistributing wealth and is eager to reimagine philanthropy through a community centric framework. Outside of work she’s a dog mom of two girls (Olivia and Blue), a graduate student, and is usually watching films with Pedro Pascal in them.
Adriyanna R. Andreus

Adriyanna joins the re:power team after working on the Made to Save team at Civic Nation mobilizing efforts to get shots in arms in communities of color and building stronger and more resilient ties between communities of color and their public health ecosystem—all in service of building long-term community power.
Previously, Adriyanna worked on the Voter Registration Quality Control Project and on Vice President Kamala Harris’s 2020 presidential campaign in accounting and compliance. Adriyanna was a 2020 Maryland At-Large Delegate for President Joe Biden while serving as the Coordinator for the Haitian Ladies Network.
In her free time, Adriyanna loves to cook her favorite Haitian recipes, cuddle with her dog Tokyo and cat Furiosa, travel the world with her partner Tiff, and keep her community civically engaged through her social media platform Decipher TV.
