He holds a master's degree in community and regional planning from the University of New Mexico. "We are dedicated to empowering our communities by listening to those with lived experience and supporting their ideas on how to address racial and economic inequities and creating lasting change," said Arturo Pérez, community affairs manager in New Mexico.
