Dian Alarcón serves as a Florida Field Organizer at the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health, where she organizes to raise the voices of Latinas in Florida for policy change at all levels of government on issues that impact their lives, women’s health care and other social justice issues. 

Dian engages in movement-building for reproductive justice, develops community leadership, builds relationships with key stakeholders, partners, and elected officials, and assists in campaign development and implementation.  Dian  is a proud Colombiana who resides in Miami, Florida. She immigrated to the US in the summer of 1999 and, has worked throughout South Florida and Chicago in the Latino community doing communications work, demographic studies, and community organizing for political action. In the over 10 years of community work 

Dian has been involved in, she has unlocked her passion for working with the community, and organizing communities for their access to their rights, education and political power. 

Dian comes to us from Lifting Latina Voices Initiative, a program of the Feminist Women’s Health Center in Atlanta, Georgia. In this capacity, Dian worked with an intergenerational group of Latinas to reduce poverty, raise awareness among parents of the need for sexual education, support students to finish school, and promote in youth their capacity to make healthy decisions about their future. In her time at LLVI, she has educated over 5,000 women on their reproductive health/rights/justice. Most recently, Dian hosted a weekly radio program on La Mega 96.5FM, dedicated to women’s sexual and reproductive health, as well as motivating Latinos to be curious about their health so that they can include a reproductive justice framework into their development as community leaders.
