Isez Roybal has been politically appointed to serve as the Policy Advisor for Domestic Violence and Gender-Based Violence. She is dedicated to addressing and decreasing the rate of domestic and sexual violence occurring in our community, ensuring effective systems of prevention and intervention serve survivors and those at risk, and improving policies that save lives.

Her professional experience of overseeing equity-driven programs and enacting progressive polices has been led by her deeper-rooted passion to fostering positive systemic change and protecting the rights for the most vulnerable.
