Alicia works with Free Press members, allies and community members on the News Voices: North Carolina project. Their life’s goal is to create a world where all people can both survive and thrive. This has led them from electoral organizing in North Carolina to parent, student and youth organizing in New York to housing, health and police-accountability organizing in Oakland and finally back home to reimagine the future of their various communities. Alicia holds a bachelor’s degree in social work and a master’s degree in educational leadership, politics and advocacy from New York University. Her favorite thing to do is spend time with the earth and water by gardening, making medicine, hiking and sitting by the ocean.
