Alejandra Gomez is an Indigenous/Chicana woman who advocates to uplift the voices, experiences, and wisdom of young black, indigenous, and people of color who have been impacted by homelessness and the foster care system. Using her experience and expertise, she has educated California’s legislative officials and their staff, policymakers, youth service providers, community leaders and members, and youth to collectively address youth homelessness during the pandemic statewide.  Serving with the National Foster Youth Institute, Native Youth Academy and California Coalition for Youth empowered her to develop her Indigenous leadership skills as a change agent to build the better world she hopes to see in her lifetime.
