Carlos Garcia was born in Cananea, Sonora, Mexico and migrated to Arizona at the age of five, where he was raised by his mother and grandfather.
Carlos co-founded One Arizona, a non-profit coalition focused on civic engagement. He was a key player in defeating the former MCSO Sheriff, Joe Arpaio, and in challenging the notorious racial profiling law SB 1070. His work stands on the belief that diverse people with common struggles and vision have the power to change the course of history.
Currently, Carlos lives in South Phoenix with his wife, Alexis, and their two small children, Chimal and Yaretzi. On the weekends, they enjoy cheering on Chimal at basketball games at the Kroc Center and at chess tournaments.
