Driven by a deep sense of compassion and justice, Alicia Orozco has dedicated her life to serving the disenfranchised. As a single mother of two, she worked hard to provide for her family while continuing to be active in community organizing.
After a year of volunteering at the Chicana Latina Foundation, Alicia was hooked. She joined the staff as Project Coordinator of our Broadband Awareness and Adoption Project in 2010 to ensure that low-income communities had access to computers and internet connection. She led the “Internet for All” team that provided digital literacy to the community and connected over 1,500 families to the internet.
Today, as Manager of Administration and Special Projects, Alicia uses her decades of experience in office/project management and community organizing to manage the administrative and accounting functions of Chicana Latina Foundation. She also provides executive assistance to the Executive Director, coordinates the growing pool of volunteers and plays a key role in the fundraising components of the organization, including the annual dinner, our main fundraising event.
Prior to joining Chicana Latina Foundation, Alicia held positions in both the public and private sectors, including the California State Legislature and Business Design Associates, a management consulting firm where she worked with dignitaries from Latin America and Europe.
Alicia is a sister, aunt, mother and grandmother. She resides in South San Francisco, California and loves to read, garden, knit, dance (after all she is Cuban). More than anything, she enjoys spending time with her granddaughters and family. She is proud to be part of Chicana Latina Foundation and contribute to its mission to empower Latinas.
