Andrea L. Delgado is a founding Board member of GreenLatinos. Andrea Delgado is a tireless advocate with over a decade of experience in strategic organizing, coalition building, Congressional and Administrative advocacy and bilingual communications for non-profit organizations.
Driven by a passion for equity and inclusion, Andrea has spearheaded national advocacy campaigns with a demonstrated commitment to the meaningful engagement and leadership of underrepresented communities in federal policy-making. Andrea currently serves as Government Affairs Director for the United Farm Workers Foundation (UFWF) where she fights to secure policies that will: deliver immigration reform for farmworker families; establish and defend occupational and environmental health standards; and eliminate historical and racist exclusions of our 2.4 million farmworkers from our laws and safeguards.
Prior to joining the UFW Foundation, she served as Legislative Director of the Healthy Communities program at Earthjustice, a non-profit environmental law-firm, where she developed and implemented legislative and administrative strategy that secured federal protections for the public and the most exposed segments of our population from toxic waste, chemicals, and pesticides.
Before joining Earthjustice, Andrea served as Senior Policy Analyst and Communications Manager for the Labor Council for Latin American Advancement (LCLAA), where she led research and advocacy initiatives to document and raise national awareness about the confluence of issues that affect the well-being and occupational health and safety of Latinx workers and their families.
For her work on labor and environmental issues, in 2011, Andrea won the MillerCoors Líder of the Year Award, a national competition among 12 outstanding Latinos nominated for their leadership and contributions to their communities. In 2013, PODER Magazine named Andrea among its “Top 100 Green Latino Leaders” who are staking out a fierce presence in the green movement. And for her success in furthering public interest policies in an increasingly divisive political environment, the D.C. based publication THE HILL recognized her among the Top Lobbyists of 2018.
