Originally from San Diego, California, Sebastian graduated from Stanford University with a degree in public policy. His passion for social justice has led him to examine policy issues through the lens of equity. He has developed an equitable transportation policy recommendation for a Sacramento government agency and analyzed the distributional effects of a carbon tax. Sebastian has worked with his city councilmember in San Diego to address issues of poverty and social justice in his community by organizing improved relations with law enforcement, connecting small-business owners to sources of capital, and developing a research project on immigrant legal defense funds.
