She is the co-founder and president of The Center for Cultural Power, a national organization dedicated to "igniting change at the intersection of art, culture, and social justice."

Through visual art, writing, and other forms of expression, Rodriguez's work "serves as a record of her human experiences as a woman of color embracing joy, sexual pleasure, and personal transformation," the artist's website lists. Rodriguez is the recipient of the Robert Rauschenberg Artist as Activist Fellowship, the Atlantic Fellowship for Racial Equity, and the SOROS Equality Fellowship.
