Rochelle Martin has 7 years of experience in development, communications and operations management. She acquired these skills while community organizing at the PICO National Network. Her time spent working for a social justice non-profit in Los Angeles greatly shaped her understanding of inequity and eventually led her to stumble upon the reproductive justice movement. Her personal experience and process of realization towards feminism led her to CLRJ. She has Bachelors of Arts degrees in Chican@ and Latin@ Studies and Comparative World Literature from California State University, Long Beach. Her passion for the RJ movement is inspired by her daughter Venus, who she hopes to create a more just world for. Her other passion is her art, Mapache Jewelry, a cultural expression of her experience as a Xicana that features crystals and focuses on self-healing.
