Senior Organizer of Infrastructure Development

Felicia Martinez


Felicia comes to Right to the City with a commitment to building strategic, powerful, and accessible vehicles to sustain and strengthen movements for justice and liberation. Born into a Southern California family of farmworker/labor organizers and Chicano student activists, Felicia deepened her political practice in the multi-racial student movements for Affirmative Action, Ethnic Studies, and divestment from the prison industrial complex in the late 1990’s. Around this time, Felicia began work as an educator with first generation college students and later with Spanish-speaking immigrant adult learners, experiences that solidified her commitment to creating avenues for growth and development for all people. Since then, Felicia has immersed herself in infrastructure and resource development, working with organizations such as ReFrame, National Domestic Workers Alliance, Funders’ Collaborative On Youth Organizing, and Causa Justa :: Just Cause. Felicia holds an M.F.A. in Creative Writing from Mills College and a B.A from the University of California, Berkeley. She is a member of the indigenous dance community Cetiliztli Nauhcampa, and a lover of beaches and bodies of water. A mother of two incredible humans, Felicia lives and parents in Brooklyn, NY.
