Warrior Woman
her work continues
1956 – 2003

The Fund is creating a living memorial to Sandra F. Camacho taking its inspiration from her human rights work.

Sandra passed away on July 10, 2003 after a year-long struggle with cancer.

Sandra was a founder and dedicated Board member of Alianza. She also served as the Violence Intervention Program’s (VIP) Associate Director and Director of Services for five years prior to her death. Sandra received local and national recognition for the work she did during her 25 years of public service in the areas she cared most about: violence against women and children, women's health, and multi-lingual/multi-cultural access. Before coming to VIP, she served as Associate Director at Casa de las Madres in San Francisco, California and as Project Coordinator for the Latina Health Policy Project of the Latino Coalition for a Healthy California.

Sandra had an impact on a multitude of lives, directly and indirectly, through her caring heart, strong spirit, and dedication.

One of her last wishes was that we continue her work, honor and celebrate her life and accomplishments, and not to remember her solely for the battle she fought against cancer.
Sandra’s spirit rests in a place where there is no violence against women and no pain.

From this resting place, Sandra’s spirit will continue to guide us in our work, offer us comfort when we struggle, and remind us of our strengths.
