Many of you already know Gustavo, he has been involved in the tobacco control movement for 14 years. After being an outspoken teen on the subject of tobacco, he was one of a few young adults from around the country selected for American Legacy Foundation’s Speakers Bureau and later, their Activism Council. For the Past 8 years he has been working with the STAND Projects, a program of Breathe California of Sacramento-Emigrant trails in Sacramento. During this time, he has assisted in the development and management of eight successfully grant funded programs bring in over 2.8 million dollars for his local community. From this work he now moves onto Boston to The Fenway Institute where he’ll fill out the team of three staff at the National LGBT Tobacco Control Network. Gustavo says, “After working with the American Legacy Foundation I always wanted to do more work on a national level. I’ve worked in the National LGBT Tobacco Control Network for years and I really appreciate all the great people and amazing work going on. I am frankly ecstatic to have the opportunity to join the staff team to help move the Network forward further.”
For our part we are sincerely delighted to have gotten the sweet mix of an experienced hand at tobacco and such an up and coming star into the house team for the Network. Look for great things to come.
