Alicia Olivarez - Women's Foundation California

Alicia Olivarez

Policy Director

Community Health

Alicia is a daughter, sister, xicana and organizer in Fresno, CA. Her early experiences growing up poor in a small farm working town have served as the main motivation to create leadership pathways and opportunities for young people to step into their power across the Central Valley. Alicia spent the last five years working to support youth organizing and development organizations in the Central Valley and co-founding one, 99Rootz, in her hometown. In her role with Power California, she has been working to prioritize policy change in communities like the Central Valley, that struggle with rampant pesticide use, poor air quality, dirty water, and poor housing.
