California LULAC is committed to connecting with younger generations. Millennials are our future, and we highly encourage all younger people to join our organization and make a difference. California LULAC has several millennials in leadership roles in the organization. Jose Barrera serves as our State Deputy Director for Young Adults. He is a graduate of UC Davis, and serves on our state board and has yet to reach the age of 23. Kimberly Fuentes was recently hired to serve as Research Director, and she has brought a new dynamic force to our State office. She is a recent graduate of CSU Channel Islands, and has firsthand experience on Capitol Hill working in Congressman Lowenthal’s office through the Leon Panetta Congressional Internship Program. Elizabeth Zepeda serves as District Director for California LULAC District 12, her leadership has ushered in many new members in her district and she is an example to district directors around the state. Dallas Rippy has served as Chief of Staff since January 2017 when he was still enrolled at UCLA, and since he graduated he has taken a much more active role in the organization. Our main initiative is to ensure that the Latino/as voice is being heard across various sectors. These young leaders represent the future for California LULAC.
