Miguel Rodriguez

Miguel Rodriguez grew up in an immigrant family. Having to translate for his parents, Miguel developed a sense for giving a voice to those who cannot communicate because of social circumstances that they cannot control. In 1997, when he was just 13 years old, Miguel Rodriguez, a Community Organizer for the Central Coast Alliance United for a Sustainable Economy (CAUSE) began participating in Future Leaders of America (FLA).┬áThis youth organization, which trains young people of color in the many aspects of leadership and civic engagement, became the stepping stone for Miguel to make a difference in young people’s lives.
