Licia is an established advocate for women, young children, and men who love and support women; the LGBTQ community, the earth, restorative justice, native american, and other indigenous people to name a few. Her efforts to make the world a safe place for ALL people began with her work to heal her own life from violence encountered throughout her child and young adulthood. From a place of healed leadership, Licia has been able to affect change and serve the world through her writing, teaching, speaking, consulting and organizing expertise.
Licia’s advocacy work includes leading women’s circles and retreats, working with organizations that support women and girls through mentoring and education, and teaching for Peace Jam, an organization that puts young people into close contact with Nobel Peace Prize winners.
Licia organized the Tallahassee One Billion Rising event in 2013, a four day love-fest to raise awareness and demand an end to violence against women.
