Genesis Corral joined Mi Familia Vota in March of 2022. She was born and raised in Scottsdale, AZ. She comes from a lineage of immigrants from Cananea and Magdalena, Sonora, Mexico. Her family first set foot in Arizona in 1919. Her great-grandparents received sponsorship from E.O. Brown to work on the cotton fields in what is now the DC Ranch neighborhood in Scottsdale.
In 1947, her family opened a restaurant in Scottsdale. Genesis spent 17 years working and managing the restaurant with her family. The restaurant is still there to this day and is now one of the top restaurants in the Valley. Genesis then decided to follow in her grandfather’s footsteps, a known advocate for the Latino and Indigenous community.
Although her journey with Mi Familia Vota is new, she already sees a future full of opportunities and endless possibilities to empower communities of color.
Outside of work Genesis spends most of her time with her family, friends that have become family, and her three dogs.
