Montzerrat Garcia Bedolla

Montzerrat is the Program Manager at the Long Beach office. Montzerrat’s leadership stems from growing up in a low-income, predominantly immigrant Latino community. She values community organizing, policy advocacy, and strategically working to better the livelihood of communities disproportionately affected by lack of investment and access to healthy resources. Over the past three years with YLI, Montzerrat has led several youth and community coalitions addressing health inequities in their communities through alcohol, tobacco and other drug prevention work, financial and economic justice, transportation equity, and immigrant justice.
