A longtime community organizer, Luis has held positions as National Program Director for Stand for Children, Field Organizer in New Mexico for President Obama’s 2008 campaign and Field Director at Arizona State University’s ADA Parent Education Program – where he oversaw a program that united parents and teachers to transform the educational experiences of children both at home and at school. Born in Culiacan Sinaloa, Mexico, Luis founded a youth publication in Queretaro at the age of 16 to give students a chance to voice their opinions on social and political issues. His passion for giving others a voice eventually brought him to the United States, where he has spent the better part of his career working to improve the quality of life for people in his community by expanding access to quality education.
