Lorena Garcia, WyoFile executive director

WyoFile is pleased to welcome Lorena Garcia as its new executive director. Garcia joined Wyoming’s premier nonprofit online news organization this month to bolster a sustainable revenue model so that WyoFile can dedicate more resources to providing in-depth coverage of Wyoming’s people, places and policy.

“Lorena is an excellent fit for WyoFile. Her experience and passion for helping people become informed and engaged citizens is the perfect complement to our organization’s desire to expand the depth and volume of our work,” said editor-in-chief Dustin Bleizeffer.

Garcia added, “I am thrilled to join such a dedicated and passionate team and am confident that, together, WyoFile will continue to be the most trusted and grow to be the most read news source in Wyoming.”

Garcia’s experience includes organizing for social justice in education, LGBTIQ rights, and workers’ rights, curriculum development and youth leadership development, and a cumulative 8 years of senior and executive leadership of statewide advocacy organizations. She served on the National Advisory Council for the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health and the Center for American Progress’ Women’s Health Advisory council.

Garcia has presented a TEDx talk on Latina Leadership and has been quoted by news outlets including the New York Times, NBC, FOX, and many local and nonprofit news outlets. Lorena is a graduate from the University of Colorado at Boulder, a 2008 Progressive Leadership and Advocacy Network Fellow with the National Women’s Law Center. She is also a recipient of the 2011 Female Cesar Chavez Award in Colorado and most recently received recognition as a sex ed champion by the Healthy Colorado Youth Alliance. Lorena has a passion for film and believes that it is the best medium to reach the masses for social justice. She is very active outdoors and often takes on athletic challenges that will push her mentally and physically.
