Alexander Murkison

Alex is a Nonprofit Professional and Community Organizer working at The Fund for Santa Barbara. He grew up in Lompoc and is one of five siblings raised by a single mother. He earned a degree in Business Administration from Allan Hancock College and decided to stay in Lompoc to give back to the community where he was born and raised. He is a local advocate and activist who is passionate about social justice and mental health support in schools. With these passions, as well as the turmoil of the world in 2020 and the future uncertainties it caused, Alex found ways to bring folks together to ensure that the voices of the community’s sizable population of underrepresented and disadvantaged individuals were heard, respected, and valued.

Alex currently serves on the Behavioral Wellness Commission of Santa Barbara County, on the Board of Directors of the Family Service Agency of Santa Barbara, and as President/Chairman of the Lompoc Mobile Crisis Task Force.
