AnaYelsi Velasco-Sanchez is an IndoLatinx mujerista working to create and agitate her way through the latin diaspora.
She has been working as a faith-based community organizer for a decade and her experience both in interfaith and multi-issue organizing has provided her a unique understanding of the complex work involved in bridge-building and unifying diverse people around a shared purpose. The former Organizing and Programs Director for The Reformation Project (TRP), AnaYelsi is now a faith organizer, consultant, public speaker, writer, and visual artist.
AnaYelsi is working towards a vision of a liberating Church that faithfully pursues the biblical call to do justice in a way that honors Creator and creation. Committed to this vision, she is acting on faith and moving outside of traditional models of missional/prophetic work that hinges one’s ability to pursue justice on their relationship with systems and organizational hierarchies. She is trusting in a community of believers to partner with her in this endeavor – freeing her to go when called and to act and speak with the integrity necessary to fulfill this vision.
She loves disappearing for hours in an art museum, feeding people a homemade flan of which she is unabashedly proud, reading everything she can get her hands on, and watching an absurd number of problematic made-for-tv holiday romcoms.
