Eduardo’s values of justice, inclusion, and equity guide his work as an advocate for transformative public policy.
As Policy Director, Eduardo works to advance policy solutions that will improve the lives of California’s Latino community. This includes helping to execute the goals of the Latino Power Fund, the foundation’s $50 million initiative focused on strengthening Latino-led grassroots organizations and mobilizing Latino leaders and voters to make lasting civic and political change.
Prior to joining the Latino Community Foundation, Eduardo worked as a policy advocate in Washington DC. At Generation Progress, the youth outreach arm of the Center for American Progress, he developed programs to engage young people across the country on key social and economic issues. He also lobbied congress and the federal government on various policy priorities, including immigration, education, and economic security. Later, he cultivated multiracial coalitions while coordinating legislative strategy to advance and protect immigrant rights at various levels of government at the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, a coalition of more than 200 national organizations.
Eduardo received his master’s degree in public policy from the University of Michigan, where his graduate work focused on immigration, workforce development, and human rights.
