He's former director of Presente.org

Carmona is the second high-profile immigration activist to join a campaign, after Lorella Praeli left United We Dream for a Latino outreach role with Hillary Clinton’s campaign. But where Praeli was advised by Democrats that her role now is not to be an activist, but to help Clinton get elected, Carmona said he sees it differently.

“I am absolutely not going to stop being an activist,” Carmona said. “What the senator is calling for is a political revolution, inclusive of all Americans and Latinos will disproportionally benefit from that movement. So I will be continuing to provide the same type of leadership, being a vocal activist representing our community.”

2. I am not familiar with Arturo Carmona himself

 

but I do know Presente quite well.

They are strongly progressive. Among other things they stand against the TPP and want Clinton & the DNC to disavow any and all connections financial and otherwise with the private prison industry.

This is fabulous! I really like the importance still being placed on a revolution and being an activist NOT just getting Latino support to get Sanders elected.

Damn fine approach!
