Ericson "E" Amaya Bonilla was born in Pulgarcito de America (El Salvador), but was raised in Deep East Oakland. He joined 67 Sueños as a high school intern back in 2013. During his time at 67, he discovered poetry as the tool that allowed him to express himself and take control of his life. While getting himself through college, "E" has continued to mentor and organize over 100 Oakland youth each year. He is currently on his path to graduate from SFSU.
Any given time, you can find "E" speaking out against state and police violence, spitting that fire spoken word, and chilling with a smile in the Deep East Jungle.
