Hello! My name is Aleena Contreras, pronouns she/hers. I am the training coordinator at Fathers and Families of San Joaquin. I facilitate trainings or restorative/transformative justice models and culturally sustainable healing practices.

I am most interested in education reform including dismantling the school to prison pipeline, creating police free schools, creating culturally sustaining programs and curriculum, and so much more.

A random fact about me is I love to do Bikram Yoga, because 90 minutes of yoga in a 105 degree room makes me feel like I can pretty much do anything! 🙂
