Public Affairs, Consultant, and Nonprofit CEO in Sacramento, CA

Now a culture of Latino/a civic engagement in the community, Chicas Latinas is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to make a positive impact in both the Latin and Sacramento community by utilizing our people and our culture to educate, inspire, and lead, to improve, connect and embrace our culture and the community in which we call our home.

Angela (Rosas) Chavez has a B.A. in journalism from CSUS. She worked as a multi-media reporter for the Visalia Times-Delta, prior to returning to Sacramento in 2009. Angela took her devotion to community and change, and her knack for story-telling, from the newsroom and directly to the people of Sacramento -- becoming a true “voice for the voiceless.”
