    Data, Research, and Campaigns Manager – Civic Engagement

    The National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) Educational Fund was established in 1981 to promote the participation of Latinos in the nation’s civic life. The NALEO Educational Fund carries out this mission by developing and implementing programs that promote the integration of Latinos into the American political system, providing assistance and training to the nation’s Latino elected and appointed officials, and conducting research and policy analysis on political access issues.
