    Born in Pomona, California to immigrant parents, Alex recognized the fear and dangers of anti-immigration laws at a young age. It was legislation like Prop 187 that led to her career in community organizing in 2007. Alex served as a campaign manager for the Adios Arpaio campaign against former Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his racially charged practices, which led to his defeat. Since joining Living United for Change in 2015, Alex has helped lead the effort to raise Arizona’s minimum wage and turn Arizona blue in 2020. As an organizer of 15 years, Alex continues to strive to be on the offense, and build power within Arizona.
