The Team

BOARD MEMBERS
Lourdes Lee Vasquez
(President/Chair of Film Committee)
Lourdes is a conscientious filmmaker who wants to empower and create action through films and constructive dialogue. She graduated from the University of California Santa Cruz with a degree in Film and Digital Media and an Associates Degree from Phoenix College in Honors Classical Studies. After graduation she returned to her home state Arizona and became heavily involved with nonprofits and politics. She worked on several political campaigns and volunteered with many nonprofits to create awareness and civic involvement on social issues. She later moved to Mumbai India to work with a production company as a researcher and concept developer for documentaries. She enjoys traveling, stepping out of her comfort zone and listening to diverse perspectives, promoting dialogue, and provoking thought and reflection. Being born in Mexico City and raised in the United States she has been able to experience the best and worst of both worlds, which enables her to deeply analyze collective and individualistic cultures.
Through effective communication and constructive information she believes humanity can advance towards a more harmonious and conscientious society that starts from within. This philosophy has led her to start Embracing Humanity. Lourdes enjoys running in the mountains while it rains, watching foreign & indie films, traveling, and challenges that make her grow. Her favorite animal is the elephant, but hopes one day to own a monkey.
