About Dr. Rios:

"My name is Aisha Rios. I founded Coactive Change in early 2020 after working for several years as an external evaluator with consulting firms functioning at the federal, state, and local levels. My passion for social change and justice permeates my participatory and collaborative approach to working with partners, and these values ground my belief in the power of evaluation as a means to facilitate learning and change. I have engaged in grassroots organizing and community building that focused on issues ranging from the exploitation of adjuncts who are overworked and underpaid, and most recently the abolition of the prison industrial complex. The work I am most proud of has centered on dismantling structural violence by way of social movement and community organizing, both directly and in supporting other change agents."
