Juana Rosa Cavero (Executive Director)
With a strong commitment to reproductive justice, Juana Rosa Cavero has dedicated her professional career and community advocacy to projects that make real improvements to people’s lives. This vision has been crafted by roles within reproductive justice, public health, Latino/a policy research and civil rights advocacy. She gained her experience within the US and globally with organizations such as the Colorado Organization for Latina Opportunity and Reproductive Rights (COLOR), Pacific Institute for Women’s Health, Advancement Project, and Women’s Policy Institute of California. Currently, she is Director of the California Coalition for Reproductive Freedom (CCRF), the largest statewide alliance dedicated to reproductive freedom in California. CCRF centers on building a movement that increases the capacity and visibility of the over 40-member organizations to fully participate in determining and achieving reproductive freedom. Since 2014, Juana Rosa has also served as President of the Mid-City Neighborhood Council, an elected position representing a constituency of 50,000 in Los Angeles. In 2019, Juana Rosa was appointed as a Delegate to the CA Democratic Party. She also maintains a side-hustle: taking care of three kids and a partner who call her “mimi” and demand that she read The Avengers themed comic books over and over and over every, single, day.
