He has served as the executive director of the non-profit organization Latinx Immigrants of Iowa since its founding in 2016 and has developed several programs and events to support Latinx people.
This year the organization hosted 3 vaccine clinics in partnership with other agencies which has helped more than 1000 people get vaccinated. Jose also serves as a board member of Knock and Drop Iowa.
Jose will share his spark story, or what motivated him to get involved—and what he reads to stay inspired.
