Tina Garnanez

Tina Garnanez grew up in Farmington and Oaksprings on the Navajo Nation. She was recruited into the military right out of high school where she spent time as a medic in Iraq. Upon her return to the U.S., she started advocating for peace and veterans issues. On the Navajo Nation, her family lives near key uranium mining sites and has been greatly affected by the loss of Tina's grandfather who was a miner in the 1950s. She has traveled on the Southern Route of the "Bring Them Home Now Tour," spoke at a Global Exchange event, an ACLU event, and has been extensively interviewed by newspapers and by various radio and television programs throughout the country. She spoke at a four-day peace event in Denmark, marched from Mobile, Alabama, to New Orleans, Louisiana. She holds memberships with Iraq Veterans Against the War and Veterans for Peace.
