Angelica is committed to the amplification and up lifting of youth voices. She believes that education should give young people a sense of their own inner strength as well as the tools to make informed and healthy choices that allow them to grow in organic and authentic ways.
Angelica has worked with young people around various social justice issues using an antiracist lens and framework since she was an adolescent. As part of the People’s Youth Agenda in the late 90’s, she helped facilitate the People’s Institute for Survival and Beyond principles and workshop concepts to youth ages 9-17 in New Orleans. After receiving her Master’s degree in Acupuncture and Chinese Traditional Medicine, Angelica became interested in reproductive health with a focus on women’s health and fertility.
This path has lead Angelica to understand the inextricable correlation between racism and reproductive health and fuel her desire to work with youth around reporoductive health and social justice. She does this as a Public Health Educator and facilitator for various organizations, including UN|HUSHED.
