Gracia Molina de Pick born to a political family in Mexico, has lived in San Diego County for over 40 years. Her earliest efforts to secure equality for women was to help organize and found Partido Popular - a Mexican political party that fought to secure voting rights for women. Since Gracia arrived in the United States in the 1950s, she worked tirelessly to advance the participation of women and people of color in the democratic process. Gracia's work to promote women's rights and human rights is international in scope - she has participated in all UN World Conferences on Women - but she is also dedicated to improving the status of women in her own community. Gracia has served as a mentor, advocate, grassroots political activist, and teacher to countless numbers of women and men in her roles as a professor at Mesa College and lecturer at UCSD.
