InfoExecutive Director, Colorado Statewide Parent Coaltion


Lorena Garcia has been supporting vulnerable communities throughout Colorado for more than a decade, by developing and executing meaningful and effective life-changing programs. Dedicated to serving nonprofit organizations her entire career, Garcia works tirelessly to build up the dignity of marginalized communities by bringing them programs that drive confidence and success. Touching the lives of people both in Colorado and around the globe, Garcia also supported communities in Nepal and Nicaragua, helping them create self-sufficient, circular economies that allow them to thrive in their isolated areas during her tenure as the Executive Director of Namlo International. The services Garcia brings to these communities include education, economic, and health and nutritional programming.

As a candidate for U.S. Senate, Garcia believes that it is time for a new voice in the U.S. Senate. We are at a crossroads in our history where we can no longer accept the status quo but must take courageous action to fix our broken government systems. Garcia is running because she believes the path to change must begin with innovative leaders who will work as tirelessly as she has for the interests of every Coloradan, not for political aspiration or special interest funding. She is dedicated to creating a country where thriving means every individual has access to economic opportunity, no matter where one lives, family origins, gender or race.

As the Executive Director of the Colorado Statewide Parent Coalition, Garcia stands behind her belief that we can have a strong educational system that begins with early childhood education for all, to help prepare our next generations to successfully face the challenges we leave for them. It must start with leaders who value all people and invests in its education and health. These two commitments alone will ensure that economic status is no longer predicated on access to healthcare or higher education. Garcia opperates on a belief that we can pass laws that protect the planet while also maintaining the dignity and economic impact for those who work in the oil and gas industry at the same time.

As a veteran organizer, women’s rights activist and nonprofit administrator who has worked in the interest of the public good throughout her career, Garcia has led important fights for family sustaining economic policies, for adequate funding for public transportation, and civil rights protections to protect women’s reproductive independence at the State Capitol and at the ballot box.

As a 7th generation Coloradan on her father’s side and first generation on her mother’s side, Garcia’s family background mirrors many families in Colorado and across the country. Her commitment to the well-being of families can be tied back to her own as the youngest of six siblings and aunt of 16 nieces and nephews. Married to her wife for seven years, they also run a small business, Amano Things. Garcia has a Bachelor’s in film studies from CU Boulder and a MBA from the George Washington University.
