Alicia Sanchez

Alicia Sanchez is the president of the BBFI/KBBF board of directors. She came to Santa Rosa in 1969 and became aware of a group of Chicano students who wanted to start a bilingual public radio station. Unfortunately, she was off to college and was not here when KBBF went on the air in 1973. She returned to Santa Rosa in 1986 and since then has played many roles with KBBF—listener, interviewee, election observer, and board member. Alicia has been a long time activist working on issues affecting workers, immigrants, women, and youth as well as an advocate for non-violence and social justice. Since 2010 she has been a full time volunteer with KBBF because of her love and passion for serving the community. She believes in KBBF’s vision and legacy.
