Evelyn Arredondo Ramirez

Digital Communications Associate

Evelyn first worked with Hispanic Access Foundation as a Latino Heritage Internship Program intern at the National Parks of Boston in 2018. In 2019, Evelyn had the opportunity to work with Hispanic Access again as a Programs Assistant for the MANO Project. Interning with Hispanic Access inspired her to join the team as a Programs Associate, and she now works as a Digital Communications Associate. Evelyn also serves as the founder and team lead of Hispanic Access’ Our DREAMS Scholarship program, an initiative serving undocumented youth.

Evelyn is from Bakersfield, California and is a first-generation college graduate with her bachelor’s degree in American studies from The George Washington University (GW). A trailblazer, Evelyn was selected to be part of the inaugural Cisneros Scholars cohort at the Cisneros Hispanic Leadership Institute at GW. Through her time with the institute, she became passionate about serving Latino communities. An advocate for social justice, Evelyn served as a 2017-18 Trabajadoras Senior Fellow under the Labor Council for the Latin American Advancement, and as a 2018 Young People For Fellow. Having learned so much from these fellowships, Evelyn continues to advocate for Latina wage equity, empowerment of young Latinas, and ensuring access to resources for underserved communities.

Why she works for Hispanic Access…

I believe in the mission and the work we do nationwide with Latino communities. As a Hispanic Access MANO Project alum, it was nice to pay it forward by mentoring other interns working for the National Park Service. Now in my new role, I love being able to share the stories that matter the most.

 

In her spare time…

“I love to go to concerts, travel to new places, find good places to eat, go to museums, attend shows like comedy or theater, and, when I am in the mindset, read a good book.”

Her favorite book…

“I don't like to share this with people, but I love Wuthering Heights. Somehow, I always find something new when I re-read it. It's probably the one book I have read at least 10 times, if not more. The plot, drama, and romance are all so good.”

A person she finds inspirational…

“I believe Dolores Huerta is an inspirational person because she did so much for farmworkers nationwide and continues to fight for Latino communities even though she is now in her nineties. She often went unrecognized, but, of course, continues to do the work because she knows the power our community has.”
