Alma Loredo, parent organizer for the Salinas Valley Health Professions Pathway, was featured in the November 2018 e-newsletter for the Women’s Foundation of California. Loredo, a member of the foundation’s Women’s Policy Institute-Local class of 2018-19, is a fellow on the institute’s Economic Justice team.

In the interview-style article, Loredo discussed the challenges and importance of policy advocacy as a Spanish speaker from Monterey County.

“I believe that the education system should supply each student with their necessities so that they have the greatest chance of going to college prepared academically and socially and economically,” she said. “This health problem in my community results from poor investment in children, especially English language learners, in their academics and socio-emotional development and from lack of high-quality pre-schooling.”
