Dulce Juarez, M.Ed, has lived in Arizona for 30 years.

Her activist journey began at the age of 14. She was an undocumented youth advocating for the passage of the DREAM-ACT.

She brings more than two decades of experience advocating and organizing as a leader in the immigrant’s rights movement. She worked at the American Civil Liberties Union for five years, where she was responsible for documenting civil rights abuses stemming from SB 1070, the “show me your papers” law.

She also worked at Center for Community Change as a Statewide Voter Registration Youth Organizer and served as a Community Partnership Consultant for Movement Voter Project in the 2018 midterm elections.

Dulce joined Chispa Arizona in 2019 as the Organizing Director and became part of the leadership team. Currently she serves as Chispa AZ State Co-Director, and is overseeing the organizing, operations, development, and fundraising work of the organization.

Her passion is advancing environmental justice and building Latinx political power for a cleaner and healthier Arizona. Juarez is excited about growing a strong movement of environmental justice leaders and continuing the fight for BIPOC liberation.
