Diana Greer

Program Facilitator

(213) 980 -1491

Diana is a Program Coordinator for Underground Scholars. She was born and raised in South Central Los Angeles. She is a proud first-generation student who is breaking generational curses in her family and community that have been affected by the school to prison pipeline and mass incarceration. She attended Cal State Fullerton where she received her B.A in English with a minor in Chicano Studies. Thereafter, attended USC where she received her master’s in educational counseling. Her goal is to obtain a doctoral degree so she can continue her research on the children of incarcerated parents, while teaching inside prisons and juvenile halls. When Diana was a few weeks old, both her parents became incarcerated, and their recidivism lasted throughout her life span. Through the power of education, she was able to liberate both her parents and end their recidivism. Both her parents are now college graduates ready to transfer to a university, and she hopes to continue helping formerly incarcerated students accomplish their college and career goals. She enjoys creating and performing poetry with her daughter Ariel, as a part of restorative justice practice.
