Born and raised in Las Vegas, NM Alonzo moved to Colorado after her high school graduation. She found employment at Cub Foods and remained there for the next 13 years, starting as a checker and holding various positions there. She married in 1994 and has three children, Christopher, Dezirae and Jessica. In 2002, Alonzo ventured out into a new business and started a cleaning service that served HUD foreclosures. Later, she organized a unionized Albertson’s store. She became a representative for UFCW Local 7 and held that position for several years. She also enrolled at Community College of Denver, became a single parent and moved to Pueblo to take another position with UFCW Local 7. Later, Alonzo became a part of AFFCME an organization of state/county/municipal employees. Alonzo also became the Executive Director for Pueblo Human Relations Commission. It is Alonzo’s goal to complete her college degree. Alonzo volunteers with various juvenile collation groups. She has a 5-year-old granddaughter, Karissa. She spends her Sundays going to church, cooking for family and listening to KUVO’s Cancion Mexicana.

About CLLARO

CLLARO is a nonprofit organization whose goals are a mixture of merging with La Raza and the Colorado Latino Forum. Alonzo adds, “I am really excited about my position. CLLARO is powerful for the Latino community. This year we are embarking on a voter registration drive on July 26, making sure we get Latinos registered. That is where the power is and our voices will be heard.”

High School Experience

“I remember positive experiences. My English teacher, Carol Aragon was a diminutive, yet powerful intellectual, eloquent woman who pushed me to be a writer,” said Alonzo

Message to Youth

“Never give up. Hold on to your dream and dream big. Life is not easy and it was not meant to be easy. Be persistent, you’ll attain your goals.”

Last Word

“I thank God for putting the people in my life that needed to be there. It is not always family He places in your path.”
