About Indira Arce
Originally from Durango, Mexico, Indira Arce grew up in the High Desert of southern California (Palmdale) from the early age of nine. She attended UCLA as an undergrad where she majored in History and Latin American Studies. After working at a small museum for a couple years, she decided to move to Tucson in 2011 and fell in love with the city. Since then, she has worked doing Spanish interpretation and doing educational work around border and migration issues. Most recently she transitioned out of her position as Program Coordinator for the department and graduated with her Masters in Public Administration from the University of Arizona (go Wildcats!). She is passionate about social justice, reproductive justice and community building.
Indira enjoys working on creative projects in her spare time: embroidery, painting, cooking (learning to) and home-improvement. Most importantly, she loves spending time with her puppy.
