Francisca Porchas Coronado

Francisca Porchas Coronado is a Mexican immigrant, Chicana, Latinx, feminist, and anti-racist organizer with over 15 years of organizing experience. Francisca has worked on issues of civil rights, environmental and climate justice, criminalization, and immigration at the intersection of race and class at a local and national level.  As former Organizing Director of Puente Human Rights Movement in Phoenix she has been one of the leading voices against deportations of migrants in the country. Her work is rooted in the belief that low income people of color, especially Black and Latinx communities have the power to transform themselves, each other and their communities.    

As the recipient of the 2017 Nathan Cummings Foundation Fellowship, Francisca founded Healing in Resistance, a wellness project that centers the healing of Latinx migrant peoples on the frontlines of the fight for migrant rights.  Francisca is the founder and national coordinator of Latinx Therapists in Action, a growing network linking Latinx therapists of color to frontline migrant rights organizations working in Latinx communities in need of mental health services. She has been initiated into the ancient, indigenous Yoruba tradition of IFA for over a decade and is currently a priestess in training.
