Victoria Quevedo

I work at La Mujer Obrera’s Tierra es Vida Community Farm in El Paso, where we practice growing culturally relevant food and medicinal herbs for the Chamizal neighborhood. I also work with La Semilla Food Center on food policy that takes the lead from families impacted by food insecurity in Doña Ana County, NM. In my spare time, I volunteer with Familias Unidas del Chamizal, to fight for dignified, safe education for children in one of the poorest, most contaminated areas of El Paso. Part of this work is recuperating ancestral practices and celebrating the vibrancy of Mexican culture.
