Maricela served in the US Navy from 1998-2002. She began speaking out against cuts to the Veterans Administration budget after leaving the military. She co-founded Service Women’s Action Network (SWAN), which supports benefits for veterans, advocates for women’s rights in the military and offers veterans’ perspectives to students faced by the hard sell of military recruiters to our youth. She currently works with the AFSC’s National Youth and Militarism Program.
