Lucero González Alvarado (Q'anjob'al Maya), is our Program Coordinator in the Maya Human Rights Program at Comunidad Maya Pixan Ixim (CMPI). Lucero holds a Masters Degree in Human Rights Practice and was trained as a social worker. Her six years of experience in social work and cultural knowledge is critical to our family reunification project work with Maya and Indigenous families separated at the U.S. - Mexico border region. Prior to joining the CMPI Team as a full-time Program Coordinator, Lucero spent two years working on Human Rights Research with the United Nations, working with Skylight (https://skylight.is), and as a CMPI Human Rights Program partner. As a Maya Q’anjob’al woman, she is honored to be part of a lineage of strong, kind, empathetic, and resilient women who came before her. We are so grateful she chose to bring her talents to CMPI!
