In Florida, his responsibility is to raise the visibility of UnidosUS’s position on immigration, healthcare, housing, and education, as well as educate and activate Latinos to vote on Election Day. He represents UnidosUS before policymakers, industry representatives, community leaders, and other local stakeholders.
