Pati Navalta, author and anti-gun violence advocate is the 2019 Women of the Year

In 2017, Navalta created the Robby Poblete Foundation in honor of her son, Robby, who was killed by gun violence in Vallejo in 2014. The nonprofit’s mission is to reduce gun violence through its gun buyback program, and transform the weapons into instruments of hope and opportunity through its art and vocational programs. In just under two years, the foundation has succeeded in getting nearly 1,000 firearms out of circulation, launched its Art of Peace program, which transforms the guns into art, in five cities, and has distributed more than $20,000 in apprenticeship scholarships to people from at-risk and high-risk populations.
