Ricardo Negron-Almodovar: A Champion for Latino Justice and Del Ambiente
Today, Ramona talks to Ricardo Negron-Almodovar about his work with Latino Justice and Del Ambient. In this enlightening discussion, Ricardo sheds light on the various voter participation challenges of the upcoming 2020 elections and explains how Latino Justice is working to address these critical issues. As one of the founders of Del Ambiente, Ricardo also discusses his work in supporting the Puerto Rican LGBTQ+ community in Florida. A native of Puerto Rico who now lives in Orlando, Florida, Ricardo serves as the Legal Service Coordinator for Latino Justice, formerly the Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund (PRLDEF). Focusing on several pillars—Criminal Justice Reform, Economic Justice, Immigrants, Rights, Voting Rights and Leadership Development, Latino Justice works to protect the civil and human rights of the Latinx community through litigation. A survivor of the Pulse Tragedy in 2016, Ricardo also works closely with Del Ambiente, an effort led by LGBTQ+ Puerto Ricans to link and build up the LGBTQ+ Puerto Rican community in Florida and beyond.
