Description

Come join us on Wednesday July 31, 2019 at 5:00-6:30pm EDT to learn from Carlos Quintero’s experience in organizing and building community in places where violence, crime and other multiple factors limit civic participation.

The session will be held in Spanish.

About Carlos and Ensamble

Carlos is the Founder and Executive Director of Ensamble, an organization that fosters social movements, builds leadership and organizes communities to fight social exclusion and isolation in the urban periphery of Mexico City.

Before launching Ensamble, Carlos worked on justice policy for over a decade in the Mexican Government, National NGOs and as a criminal defense attorney. There, he learned that social change and legal reforms are not the same thing in the Mexican context. He originally trained as a Lawyer in Mexico City, and later in Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School, where he studied with Marshall Ganz.
