Prior to joining the Alliance, Montoya Price served as Advocacy Director for the Colorado Children’s Campaign (the Campaign). In this role, she oversaw the development, implementation, and evaluation of the Campaign’s efforts to engage advocates, providers, parents, caregivers, and others in the organization’s policy work, publications, and research. She was also a co-convener of the Raise Colorado coalition, which works to ensure that pregnant people, infants, toddlers, and their families have what they need to thrive.

Prior to her role at the Campaign, Montoya Price served as the Executive Director and co-founder of Colorado Organization for Latina Opportunity and Reproductive Rights (COLOR), a sisterhood of Latinas dedicated to building a movement of Latinas, their families, and allies through leadership development, organizing, and advocacy to create opportunity and achieve reproductive justice.

“Equitable coalitions where power is shared are vital to the effectiveness of state-level policy advocacy,” said Helene Stebbins, Executive Director of the Alliance. “With Jacy on board, our state allies will be able to tap a new level of expertise on collective power and building a unified voice.”
