Rosa Bautista
Chief Advisor & Executive Operations Manager

Irma R. Muñoz is the Founder/President of Mujeres de la Tierra – a “culturally relevant”
environmental non-profit focused on healing la Madre Tierra and re-defining the
traditional “green” dialogue. She has developed guidelines and approaches for effective community
engagement through using creative tools including “platicas” resulting in
impactful participation where members of the community are inspired to “lead”
and “own” issues in their neighborhood.

She believes that community engagement is about community listening. Listening
not just with our ears, but also with our eyes, head and heart.

For the past 11 years, she has served as a Governor’s appointee to the Los
Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board and is the City of Los Angeles
Mayor’s appointee to the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy which provides
the opportunity to also serve on the Mountains Recreation Conservation
