Meet Kayla Frawley, Director of Policy and Advocacy
Kayla Frawley recently joined Voces Unidas as its first Director of Policy and Advocacy. Based in our Denver satellite office, Kayla will be responsible for directing the organization’s efforts to achieve policy change that advances racial, social and economic justice and equity for rural Latinas and Latinos in the central mountain region of Colorado.
The Director of Policy and Advocacy oversees our day-to-day engagement with state and federal legislators and other policymakers. Additionally, she will manage our multifaceted portfolio of advocacy and policy programs and initiatives, including the Colorado Latino Agenda, Latino Advocacy Day in both Denver and DC, and the Civic Leader Education and Advocacy Program in Mexico City.
Kayla comes to Voces Unidas with more than five years of policy experience at the Colorado state Capitol and 15 years of experience serving families in the Southwest region. Most recently, Kayla was Legislative Director for ProgressNow Colorado, where she directly lobbied 18 bills and worked on 62. She also served as Manager of Policy and Advocacy at Clayton Early Learning Center in Denver, where she developed the successful and reputable Clayton Community Ambassador Program. She started her career as a Midwife in Texas – serving predominantly Spanish-speaking families in the border town of El Paso.
"I am overjoyed to join a talented, strategic team devoted to the leadership and progress of Latinas and Latinos in the central region of our state,” Kayla said.
Originally from South Minneapolis, Kayla holds a B.A. in Medical Anthropology from New Mexico State University and has focused on social welfare policy while earning her Master’s in Public Health.
