Isabel Lopez is the Executive Director Raizes Collective. Isabel Lopez is a mother, advocate, activist, Executive Director, neighbor, daughter, and first-generation woman of color born in Morelos, Mexico. Her parents migrated to Sonoma County to support the family doing field work picking grapes. So at 7 years old, Isabel and her 6 siblings, live with their parents in a one bedroom home. She did not speak English and life was very different from the conditions she experienced in Mexico. She noticed the inequities and unfairness in the Immigration system when she became a citizen in 1994; was fortunate to benefit from the Amnesty Program that gave her citizenship just 6 months after her father became a US citizen under this program.
