Alma was born in Mexico City and migrated to the United States in 1999 when she was 11 years old. Ever since then, Alma has called the Inland Empire her home. From a very young age, Alma developed a passion for social justice but it was not until she was an undergraduate student at California State University, Los Angeles that she learned the power of organizing when she joined the AB540 student group on campus. This experience led her to do critical political and workforce development work with labor and community organizations all over Southern California. Throughout her work, she has always prioritized and continues to prioritize the wellbeing and empowerment of our immigrant communities in the Inland Empire.
Alma holds a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree in Sociology from California State University, Los Angeles. Outside of work, Alma enjoys spending time with her loved ones and caring for her mischievous cats.
