Northwest Arkansas Worker Justice Center: Magaly Licolli was born in Leon, Guanajuato, Mexico.  She’s been living in Arkansas for 13 years, and throughout those years working closely with the immigrant community, she learned the struggles of the immigrant community in this area. After hearing shocking stories of poultry workers, she began learning and being involved with labor organizing and became passionate about it.

Magaly achieved an Arts and Science degree in 2013, and thanks to her artistic career and love for social justice, she’s bringing more artistic work for workers to use arts as a form of healing and empowerment; her passion and leadership working with immigrants are a key element to continue growing the organization.

She’s currently working to bring the GFPP (Good Food Purchasing Program) campaign to Arkansas by collaborating with local farmers, environmentalist and other allies to keep supporting workers efforts in quest of dignity and respect in poultry plants.

Greater Minnesota Worker Center: Ahmed Ali has been the Executive Director of Greater Minnesota Worker Center since January, 2017.  He has served as the Lead Staff organizer from December, 2014 to December, 2016 and as a founding board member and the board vice chair for the two years before 2013-2014.  He has a decade of experience in nonprofit management, planning, community and labor organizing.

Ahmed serves on the board of various organizations including Centracare Health System, Stearns County Public Health and St Cloud Math and Science Academy, a charter school in St Cloud.

Ahmed is pursuing Master of Business Administration at St Cloud State University and has studied Mass Communications (BS), Political Science (BA) and International Relations (BA) at the same university.

Ahmed lives in St Cloud with his wife, a social worker and three children aged 0 to 5 years of age.
