Latino Victory Foundation

 

Biography

 

Cristóbal previously served as Hillary for America’s National Deputy Director of Voter Outreach and Mobilization, where he helped manage efforts to register, persuade, and mobilize the core coalition groups that form the base of the Democratic Party: African Americans, Latinos, women, millennials, and organized Labor; as well as the Expansion States program to elect Democrats up and down the ballot in 37 states.

 

Prior to launching Latino Victory with Henry R. Muñoz III and Eva Longoria, Cristóbal spent more than five years in philanthropy serving at both the Open Society Foundations and the Ford Foundation. During that time Cristóbal led more than $60M in investments designed to increase political participation in communities that have been historically excluded from our democracy.

 

Before moving into politics, Cristóbal was a civil rights lawyer. He served as Director of the National Campaign to Restore Civil Rights, where he led a coalition of more than 100 organizations to raise awareness of the civil rights rollback and develop strategies to win in the federal courts and the United Nations. He also practiced civil rights law with a focus on police misconduct and First Amendment rights at the Seattle-based MacDonald Hoague & Bayless, one of the nation’s leading law firms.

 

A native of El Paso, Texas, Cristóbal received his J.D. from the University of Washington School of Law. Cristóbal is a proud at-large member of the Democratic National Committee. He also sits on the boards of the League of Conservation Voters, the Environmental Defense Action Fund, and the Sixteen Thirty Fund. He lives in D.C. with his wife Taí, and rescued pit bull Chelsea, and two cats, Valiente and Ricky Martin.
