Marisol Quevedo Rerucha
Marisol Quevedo Rerucha is a proven leader who doesn't just talk about healing, equity, social justice, and disrupting generational trauma; she has both lived experience and a proven record of doing this work while leading change in education and non-profit systems. She uses her voice to challenge systems of oppression and more importantly amplifies the voices of others. Marisol’s passion for supporting our nation’s alternative schools, illustrates how she uses her gifts and talents to support students that are most marginalized. She has engaged in the real work of addressing and ending the school to prison pipeline by building and leading career readiness and career technical education in juvenile court and community schools.
The impact of her passion, experience, work, and voice is felt beyond her own community as she serves in the following ways as: Chief of Partnerships and Strategy for the National Parents Union; Director of Culture and Community for DBC Inc; Co-Chair of UnidosUS National Institute for Latino School Leaders alumni council; Board Member of Youth Empowerments Finest; and as a partner with organizations (nonprofit and for profit business) to provide comprehensive strategic action planning. Marisol, with her thought partner Dr. Carolyn Gery, is currently designing a new professional learning pathway for The Core Collaborative Learning Network that leverages the power of restorative practices by embracing a more connected way of being while leveraging a human centered approach to life and work. Her book on restorative practices is set to release January of 2021.
