About Leticia Resch with fResch Events
Leticia Forney Resch (She/Her/Hers) is a Mixed race Black woman of African American, Chumash and Latinx heritage. Leticia’s multicultural home and family provides her with a unique perspective and insight into the makeup of Santa Barbara. As a fourth generation Santa Barbarian, Leticia has seen firsthand the attempted erasure of the Black and Brown community but has remained constant in her commitment to mothering in community.
Leticia earned her Bachelors in Film and Media Studies at the University California- Santa Barbara. Throughout her studies, she examined the dehumanization of the Black body in film and observed the lack of representation of diverse Black communities and families. She brought this same introspection to her professional career as an event planner and creative director. Leveraging over 10 years of experience and development, Leticia has moved to create programs, access and opportunities for diverse artists and creatives of color.
As a co-organizer with Healing Justice SB, Leticia uses her artistic vision to create more equitable and empathic communities for Black, Indigneous and other people of color.
