Alona Del Rosario
 
Alona Del Rosario currently serves as project associate for the Economic Security for Survivors Project at the Institute for Women's Policy Research. In this role, Alona focuses on developing training resources and providing technical assistance designed to increase the capacity of sexual and domestic violence service providers to respond to the economic barriers faced by survivors of violence and abuse. Most recently, Alona was a public policy advocate at the Arizona Coalition to End Sexual and Domestic Violence (ACESDV) advocating for policies to increase funding and supportive services for survivors of abuse. While at the coalition, she also managed the Economic Justice and Financial Barrier Reduction Projects, coordinating training and technical assistance for local domestic violence programs offering financial empowerment services. Prior to ACESDV, Alona worked as a legal advocate at United Methodist Outreach Ministries (UMOM) New Days Centers’ domestic violence program where she assisted survivors in seeking safety and legal remedies as they navigated Arizona's criminal and civil justice systems, in addition to coordinating services for families in emergency shelter. Alona discovered her passion for social justice and advocacy when she attended and later worked for Anytown Arizona, a youth leadership development program that laid the foundation for her career and grounded her commitment to public service. She holds a master’s degree in criminal justice from Arizona State University and a bachelor’s degree in psychology and criminal justice from Northern Arizona University.
