California ReLeaf is delighted to introduce Victoria Vasquez, our new Grants & Public Policy Manager.
Living in the City of Trees, Victoria is passionate about creating equitable public health outcomes by increasing and maintaining green infrastructure and a healthy tree canopy. As a community organizer with Sacramento Tree Foundation, she worked to connect community leaders in high pollution census tracts with resources and civic leaders. Victoria’s focus on collaboration amongst a wide variety of partners and grantees helped to implement greenhouse gas reduction grants and prioritize tree plantings at schools, places of worship, residences, parking lots, and parks.
Victoria currently serves as the Vice Chair of the City of Sacramento Parks and Community Enrichment Commission, as a Girl Scout Troop Leader, and on the Board of Directors for Project Lifelong, a nonprofit that supports youth development in non-traditional outdoor sports — for example skateboarding, hiking, skim boarding, and surfing.
Victoria can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (916) 497-0035.
