Fecha brings energy and expertise to her new role building external and local partnerships. She also fosters a healthy, vibrant community amongst Posner members and tenants, pitches in wherever she can assist, and amplifies networks to build creative collaborations.
She is a certified victim advocate with seven years of community development, outreach, social policy research, and economic empowerment programming for high-risk and trafficked youth.
In 2019, she co-founded Karana Rising with two survivor leaders of gender-based violence. They advance survivor justice and healing for survivors who have experienced the trauma of arrest as a result of their own trafficking and sexual exploitation. Fecha works alongside the executive director at Karana Rising to develop and advance policies and programs supporting survivor justice and healing, including external earned media and owned media consumption. She is also responsible for developing and managing programmatic and development partnerships.
Prior to Karana Rising, Fecha was the prevention education specialist at FAIR Girls, a nonprofit in Washington DC serving young women survivors of human trafficking, and residential counselor for FAIR Girls’ Vida safe house.
Outside of work, she loves exploring the great outdoors, making jewelry, playing soccer, reading, and thrifting.
